    Not least we talked about Erik's views on cryptocurrencies and what could come after Bitcoin.
    =====
    In this episode you'll learn:
    That writing a book is easier than many claim But publishing and selling in large numbers is a special game of its own Why a global distributed ledger digital but gold backed currency is the logical development beyond the blockchain Why Tesla is still a zero When the USD could lose its reserve status Why and when the price of gold in USD could drop by 25 per cent or surge by 500 per cent =====
    Erik Townsend is a retired software entrepreneur turned hedge fund manager and host of the Macrovoices Podcast.
    Throughout his career, Erik has capitalized on his ability to understand complex systems and anticipate paradigm shifts far in advance of the mainstream.
    A teenage computer protégé, he spent most of his high school years at MIT's Artificial Intelligence laboratory, where he taught himself several computer programming languages. Erik became an independent software development and design consultant to Digital Corporation's manufacturing systems technology group at age 17. By age 20 he owned his first private aircraft.

    Futurist Martin Ford on: the 23 Leading Architects of AI

    Futurist Martin Ford on: the 23 Leading Architects of AI

    ❄ Merry Christmas! ❄
    In today's Christmas episode we talk to futurist Martin Ford, popular speaker and author of bestselling books Rise of Robots and now Architects of Intelligence.
    This episode can be seen as the finale to the last three (#43 - robotics and #44 - global problems). We discuss where the future of AI, robotics, and other high-tech fields seems to be headed, based on the existing research and the lay of the land. Most important - Martin clarifies what might be reasonable to expect in terms of future progress in these areas, based on what he's learned from talking to the 23 leading innovators in these fields.
    Here's a rough outline of the conversation:
    What is a robot? Martin's definition. Is Martin positive or pessimist about the future in general? Will the job market be more or less mismatched in 10 years? The Protestant Work Ethic is now mismatched to highly technological economy; how can we shift this value/tradition? Universal basic income - could it work? Is it compatible with open borders? What did Martin Learn from the 23 Architects of Intelligence? (Demis Hassabis, Nick Boström, Ray Kurzweil, Geoffrey Hinton, etc) What's an evolutionary network vs neural network? The leading AI companies - what are they up to?
    Why bundling & leveraging existing technology in business model will be paramount. Can normal people invest in AI startups? Longevity escape velocity - and will Ray Kurzweil live forever? Deep Mind + will Google achieve AI monopoly? What are some Future Skills recommended by Martin? And much more...! More about Martin:

    Why Robotics is the New Auto Industry

    Alternate headline: "How You Can Own a Little Robot Butler, Like Rocky in 1984"

Mikael makes a strong case for why robotics will be "the new auto industry", with lots of other industries converging into one massive industry. And how YOU can position yourself to get in early, working for or with robotics makers (for example by visiting your local robotics company...)
    Also discussed in this episode: "RaAS" - Robotics as a Service, "Intelligent Agents" - autonomous decision makers,
    We will continue this discussion in next week's episode, talking about the 5 biggest problems to come (human demand) and the most likely (profitable) future industries.

    42: Dr Philippa Malmgren. How to manage the next big thing (Dr P is a robot entrepreneur, presidential advisor, author...)

    42: Dr Philippa Malmgren. How to manage the next big thing (Dr P is a robot entrepreneur, presidential advisor, author...)

    Today we talk to Dr Philippa Malmgren
    P***a, short for “Philippa”, is a tech entrepreneur and a geopolitical consult. She has authored several books, including “Signals”, and “Geopolitics for investors”.
    In this conversation we focus on her most recent book “Leadership Lab” and learn about important neglected skills of good leaders and why managers keep getting blindsided by well-known trends.
    We talk about important megatrends like Big Data and the internet of (surveillance) things and how to adapt to technological change.
    P***a is extremely productive, something she attributes to mostly working at just 80% of capacity.
    Among many thought provoking ideas, we discussed see-through clothes, why even Philippa Malmgren finds resistance to her suggestions, and why you should replace your ToDo list with a Be list.
    Finally we get to know how P***a does her best work while she appears to be sleeping in, why culture eats strategy for breakfast, and how eyes can’t see clearly if imagination is out of focus.
    You can find Dr P***a on her website, Twitter, or Amazon
