Is AI induced irrelevance the new epidemic for humanity?

If we can barely comprehend the new technologies, then how do we regulate their explosive potential? Already today, computers have made the financial system so complicated that few humans can understand it. As AI improves, we might soon reach a point when no humans can make sense of finance anymore. What will that do to the political process? Can you imagine a government that waits humbly for an algorithm to approve its budget?

What Doesn't Change, in this era of Change.

There are forums, discussions, workshops on change on media and brand communications. But there are some things that should not be a trade off. These are things that we tend to overlook in this whirlwind of change. Like Storytelling. Like a Relevant product Proposition. Like Honesty. Like Empathy. Would love your views. Join me at WPP Stream.

Responsible marketing

As marketers should we take on more responsibility in shaping our clients products to be more environmentally conscious and socially responsible. For example, the packaging of drinks and food in plastic; reusable batteries, plastic versus wooden toys etc.

Channan and I will be discussing the lines that are invisible lines. Because not knowing them as we're all aware, causes loss to individuals, their families and organisations. So what are we doing about this?

Is Blockchain a solution looking for a problem?

They hype cycle is over. ICOs are down. Tokens are not attractive anymore. But few companies like Alibaba, IBM and Mastercard have more than 50+ patents on this technology. There are at least 6 governments looking to integrate this technology to build their Smart Nation. This is one technology where experts are not fence sitters any more. A few believe in it. And the rest think this is useless. Which side are you?

Embracing minimalism: the why, the how, the challenges..

An increasing number of people have started to "think" about minimalism. But what about the hordes of stuff that you already own? And the lure of the new gadgets and the need to look cool and the family that still wants to acquire new stuff. So how does one get to the path of minimalism then?

Repairs, renovation and refurbishment will be back.

Once upon a time, furniture, cars and white goods were bought in the belief that they would last a lifetime. In the past two decades, the durability has gone out of durables and everything is thrown away after a few years. My premise: we will all try and extend the lives of our investments. As a result, the there will be money to be made by experts who can provide 'repair' services.

The Plastic Problem

Each year, 400m tonnes of plastic is produced and 40% of that is single-use -plastic we'll only use once before it's binned. More than 8m tonnes of plastic enters the world's oceans each year and most of that escapes from land. Experts think that by 2050, the amount of plastic in the ocean will weigh more than the amount of fish. Isn't that sad?! Birds, fish and shellfish can mistake plastic for food and a lot of animals are dying. Are we collectively doing enough? From innovations in recycling, to government initiatives, to businesses/capitalism taking responsibility, to individuals changing their lifestyles? How can we stop this GLOBAL issue - ON MASS? Come and debate this hot topic with me!
