Part 1 of 4 interviews from our end-of-year event, The Pain and Triumphs of 2020: The Biggest Lessons We Learned This Year where we asked guest speakers what their biggest lessons of 2020 were. Faith Legendre joins us in this episode and shares her big 2020 lesson.
This newsletter is for anyone who wants to be proactive about defining and creating their future and who, rather than feel overwhelmed by technological innovation, wants to get ahead (and stay ahead) of innovation. It’s about developing technology skills that moves beyond learning to code, and offers a more cross-displinary way of learning about emerging technologies and their impact on the world.
For this first Quick Question, Charlie taps manufacturing entrepreneur Rich Mokuolu (coFounder of Partsimony, ) for advice on whether people should take an intriguing new 3D entrepreneur course that she found on Kickstarter to diversify their technology upskilling and, perhaps, to create new opportunities to provide 3D printing consulting services as a freelancer.
We’re kicking off the Fall, pumpkin spice season with a spicy conversation between Charlie and this week’s guest, Greg Larkin (best-Selling Author, This Might Get Me Fired, faculty at Singularity University, guest lecturer, Columbia Business School, and self-professed “innovation punk”).
In this flashback episode from 2018, Charlie interviews Faith Legendre (Sr. Circular Economy Solutions Strategist and Intrapreneur, Cisco Systems). Faith (whose personality embodies the definition of her name perfectly) has been an awesome member of the Tech 2025 community since we launched our very first event January 11, 2017 (Battle of the Chatbots & Conversational Interfaces in 2017).
This week on the show, Charlie enjoys the opportunity to interview one of Tech 2025’s awesome advisors, Meg Charles (Global Corporate Attorney and former managing partner, Start-Up Board Director/Advisor, Angel Investor and Founder of Frame Advisory LLC which offers legal and strategic advisory to startups and small businesses ).
Want to know what the next era of innovation will be like? On this week’s episode, Charlie explores what post-pandemic innovation might be like for enterprise companies and startups with guests Taran Hughes and Zineb Layachi (co-Founders and co-Hosts of PitchSLAP). They explore the most likely future of innovation and its impact on enterprise companies and startup ecosystem.
This podcast episode is a “must-listen” not just because Anne T. Griffin (our Chief Product & Curriculum Officer) is the guest speaker, but because she imparts knowledge and thoughtful suggestions on how people and companies should move forward with emerging technologies in these uncertain times based on her own experience.
Tech 2025’s commitment to continuous learning also means that we follow-up on topics we’ve covered recently. And by far the overall topic of the year is COVID-19. Recently we posed an important question to two industry AI experts at a virtual panel event “Why AI Has Failed to Live Up to Its Hype in this Pandemic.” Here’s a followup to that event.
This guest post by Glenn Rodriguez, Program Director at the Horizon Juvenile Center, highlights the disturbing trend of comparing black box algorithms to court judges and the impact on prisoners who are denied Due Process by algorithms.
