Scenario prompts are the first step of strategy development. If you want to improve your own strategic planning abilities, we have developed a simple four-step programme that will help develop the collective strategy muscle of your organisation. If you want more information, feel free to contact me.
Topics are creative thinking, humanoid bots, drones, brainless robots, wireless power transfer, bio-inspired solar, growing human kidneys inside pigs using stem cells, pressure sensors, adaptive materials and blade runner.

OpenAI’s GPT-4 Scores in the Top 1% of Creative Thinking
The creative abilities now realized by AI may provide a “Sputnik moment”
Humanoid Robots Could Be “Economically Viable” In a Few Years
Elon Musk predicts humanoid robots will eventually outnumber humans. Goldman Sachs expects a $6B market expansion in 10-15 years.
FAA clears UPS delivery drones for longer-range flights
UPS delivery drones are now allowed to fly longer distance flights beyond the sight of ground operators.
‘Brainless’ robot can navigate complex obstacles
Researchers who created a soft robot that could navigate simple mazes without human or computer direction have now built on that work, creating a “brainless” soft robot that can navigate more complex and dynamic environments.
DARPA’s speed-of-light energy network is one step closer
The program aims to revolutionize energy distribution through airborne wireless power transfer.
A big leap in solar power: The bio-inspired photovoltaic leaf shows greater efficiency
Beyond its cooling capabilities, the PV-leaf concurrently generates electricity, heat, and clean water, significantly boosting solar energy utilization.
Scientists grow human kidneys inside pigs using stem cells
For the first time, scientists produced human kidneys out of chimeric embryos containing a mix of pig cells and human stem cells. The same technique can be used to produce heart and pancreas.
Pressure sensors inspired by nature for non-invasive surgeries
The surface of the sensor registers the movement at the interface of air and liquid, triggering a change in electrical signals that accurately reflects even minute amounts of exerted pressure.
Shinshu University’s Breakthrough: Graphene Oxide Nanosheets and the Revolution in Adaptive Materials
The thermoresponsive GO nanosheets are promising building blocks for biomedical, energy, and environmental applications, such as smart membranes, soft robotics, and recyclable systems, hydrogel actuators, and biomedical solutions”.
Will we ever be able to detect AI usage?
In Blade Runner, it shows the use of the Voight-Kampff test, one of the most famous AI-detection tests in science fiction. Read https://www.ronimmink.com/if-ai-has-taken-over-the-world-would-it-let-you-know/
