Mapping Innovation: A Playbook For Navigating a Disruptive Age – with Greg Satell

This episode is sponsored by the CIO Scoreboard

My guest this week is the Greg Satell.

Greg is a popular writer, speaker and innovation advisor, whose work has appeared in Harvard Business Review, and Forbes.

I met Greg through the two gentlemen at Experian who have been on the show recently, Eric Haller, Executive Vice President of Experian’s DataLabs, and Barry Libenson, CIO of Experian. Birds of a feather flock together, as they say. As Greg and I were setting up the conversation, he just released his first book called Mapping Innovation: A Playbook for Navigating a disruptive age.   It was published in May of 2017.

Artificial Intelligence as a Super-Assistant to Cyber Security to Cyber Security Intelligence

In the next few years we will see the emergence of exponential technologies that, when implemented in unison, will greatly improve cyber security. One example that is relevant for CIOs is the joining of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data to help executives visualize cyber intelligence information to improve decision-making and better target IT investments.

Big Data offers enormous opportunity, but there are two core issues that need to be addressed. One problem with Big Data is that often we do not know how to interpret the data. When we do, it usually gets passed from expert to executive in a way that does not necessarily provide a better understanding of the information, or how it can be applied to the problem at hand.

The second issue is that often we do not know how to best interact with the data that we are interpreting. The days of 100-page data summaries are nearing an end. We now need effective and streamlined solutions to limit these inefficiencies. Continue reading

What Could We Learn From Biology and Nature to Defend Our Own Systems – with Peter W. Singer, Top 100 Innovator and Global Thinker

This episode is sponsored by the CIO Scoreboard

There was literally too much ground to cover with Peter W. Singer. He was one of these interviews where you just have to let him run because he has so much to say. His knowledge and experience are too wide to cover in a short hour, but here are some key takeaways that you will learn when you listen.

Major Take-Aways From This Episode:

He is not a doomsday figure, but one that seeks to find alternatives, explain, and develop context to the changes that are impacting our lives.

He was on a research project that asked 60 people what are the 5 trends that are of the same magnitude the release of computer in 1980:

  1. Hardware – Robots, autonomous vehicles
  2. Software – IoT, Big Data, AI
  3. Waveware – Energy Sources, solar, lasers
  4. Hardware – Additive printing and manufacturing, 3d, bits to atoms
  5. Wetware – human performance enhancing technology

The Inevitable Technology Forces Shaping Our Future and How to Position Yourself for this Change – with Kevin Kelly

This episode is sponsored by the CIO Scoreboard

Kevin Kelly, I think, may be the smartest person in the world…and I am only half-joking. I have been deeply interested in his work, and his thinking has influenced mine.

His 2010 book What Technology Wants changed my perspective on Information Technology in 2010; his book Cool Tools is a compendium of the best tools cultivated from his years of research. Among other resources I like is his blog post 1000 True Fans; his latest book just released this summer titled The Inevitable; and his podcast interviews on London Real, Tim Ferriss, Lewis Howes, and Chase Jarvis.

I asked him to come onto the show to get into topics that I had not heard him dive into from the perspective that I was curious about… I know you will be too.
