Interview
We recently had the pleasure of working with John C. Havens at Innotribe at Sibos 2016. John is an author and speaker focused on emerging technology and human well-being. His latest book, Heartificial Intelligence, argues that the “technological pinnacle” reached through the creation of intelligent machines requires us to “elevate the quest to honor humanity and to best define how AI can evolve it.” I had the opportunity to speak with John shortly after he presented at Sibos.

Collective Next recently had the pleasure of working with Michell Zappa at Innotribe at Sibos in Geneva. Michell is a technology thinker, information designer, self-proclaimed futurist, and founder of Envisioning, a virtual research institute. During his presentation in Geneva, he shared a Paul Graham quote, “When experts are wrong, it's often because they're experts on an earlier version of the world.” Far from being an expert on an outdated era, Michell has dedicated himself to finding ways to envision our technology rich future. I had an opportunity to speak with him in-depth just after his return from Switzerland.

Think Piece
"AI is the new electricity.” So stated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) expert Andrew Ng during MIT’s EmTech Digital Conference this year. Electricity, as a commodity, was initially perceived as an additive ingredient that might contribute to incremental change, observes Ng. In retrospect, of course, we know it “transformed everything.” Ng gives two quick examples of the “unexpected ramifications” of electricity: electric refrigeration, which (no big deal) “changed the entire food supply chain system”; and electric motors, which (casually) revolutionized virtually every form of human industry.

See what Graphic Facilitation Boot Camp looks like in action! This year I’ve had more and more opportunities to do the work I love, graphic facilitation, and to teach others how to use visuals in their work. Every Graphic Facilitation Boot Camp I’ve led has brought with it some new and interesting challenges, and has also shown me that anyone can benefit.
