Principles, legacy and humanocracy

I had the pleasure of giving a keynote address for the Landbell group in Rome and doing a Q&A session with their talent academy. I talked about books, AI, data, context, future trends, framing, LEGO, chess, technology abstraction, circularity, innovation, and strategy. I had a ball. I am happy to share the PowerPoint. Drop me a line.

Technology abstraction

The Q&A session with the talent academy was particularly fascinating. We discussed the impact of technology abstraction on an organisation. Here are some interesting scenario prompts. Do you look for innovation outside of the organisation, or do you allow your citizen developers to play with data, AI, programming, blockchain, IoT, and, in the future, quantum and engineered biology? At scale, at enterprise level. Your technology platform, your cultural platform, common guiding principles, a shared vision, passion and purpose become absolutely crucial. Read “Principles”, “Legacy”, and “Humanocracy”.

Charming AI

As I have never been to Rome, I decided to stay on for a few extra days. And started wondering. I posted about it on my newly launched digital transformation mind candy (compliments of AgilePoint). Will AI ever be as charming as an Italian waiter or waitress? Can AI replace the human connection? Given that Ireland is playing England this weekend, would you watch robots play rugby? Read Appreciating human connection, hard and art.

Mixed reality

But also how disappointing the customer experience is with all the historic attractions in Rome. There was very little use of technology, a lot of friction, and a disappointing level of application of mixed reality. It brought me back to my last AR/VRinnovate conference, where I chaired a panel. Read “ARVRinnovate conference, the 5 books”. It is the same feeling I get while playing Xbox One. Not much has changed. Although I would expect that mixed reality (including gaming) will move up the adoption curve very rapidly this year. But then, I have been expecting that for quite a while. Shows you how much I know.

What do you think?

The above, and in particular technology abstraction, are the topics of my next book. Love to hear your views. What do you think?
