INDUSTRY

Technology

The Tech Sector seems to be a grab bag of anyone who either started as a hardware or software company, or is using digitization as the core engine of their value add, which is where it gets increasingly blurry, and extends to BioTech, FinTech, MedTech, FemTech, PropTech, …

What can be assured is the list will expand. The Exponential Price Curve is not over, even if Moore’s law is. The cost of computing power and storage can be expected to keep declining and interconnectivity to continue to expand. With this democratization of core technologies, including AI, the opportunities to build on the stack are enormous.

Technology also has the potential to solve many of the challenges of this world, as we race to ensure a sustainable equitable future for ourselves and all life on the planet. All technology, however, is a double edged sword, fire can warm you and cook your food, and also burn down your house. As we look at the future of technologies, these are the questions we are asking.

We ask these 3 key questions when looking at the future of all industries.

  1. How will you intertwine the Triple Bottom Line of Planet, People, and Prosperity?

  2. Where are the Moments of Courage you need?

  3. What Key Questions will unlock new mental models?
We encourage you to harness exponential technologies and take Courageous Actions to Build Forward.

The Triple Bottom Line

  • How to use technology to optimize every and all life?
  • How to use technology to solve Environmental Problems, without unintended consequences?
  • How to ensure that this is only renewable energy driven?
  • How to use technology to rewild the planet, like the Longnow Foundation?
  • What do we do on this planet, if MedTech extends longevity and drives the population even higher?
  • Standards to prevent greenwashing
  • How to ensure that AI is net-positive on energy consumption while optimizing the insights it is bringings?
  • How to decarbonize the industry retroactively?
  • How to use technology to optimize every life?
  • How to build into all technology AI-Alignment?
  • How to build inclusivity in technology through diversity in employees, datasets, and correlations.
  • How to ensure AI Transparency to spot builtin biases.
  • How to further leverage technology as a solution to social issues.
  • How to limit technology as an invasive and restrictive social issue.
  • How to democratize and personalize data ownership
  • How to decouple platform wealth from personal data?
  • How to be the ethical explorer, who unlocks the massive value to people, societies, all life and the planet that can be created through technology and to be rewarded for the contribution?

The Courage Needed

Put all people, society and the planet first, and take full accountability for all of the consequences (positive and negative) of your actions.

The Question to Ask

Given that no one really knows where this will all lead to, and that all technologies are double edged swords, how to make sure that we have a planet, people, and society outcome?
