Singularity is closer than you think
Disruption is a radical change to an existing industry or market due to technological innovation. It happened when industrialization disrupted the world and people started creating goods using machines about 1760 to 1840. Most of you went through a disruption when you started to use the world wide web and emails or the GPS technology for navigation. The modus operandi completely changed and the old status quo never came back.
In technology singularity describes a hypothetical future where technology, especially advanced artificial intelligence (AI) outpaces human intelligence. These intelligent and powerful technologies will radically and unpredictably transform our reality. John von Neumann -- a Hungarian American mathematician and computer scientist first discussed the concept of technological singularity early in the 20th century.
The latest developments of chatbots by IBM's Watson or Microsoft's Azure and OpenAI's ChatGP real language processing made a huge leap forward in the usability of AI. We need to prepare for an unprecedented change in workplaces too.
The physically very capable robots are as frightening as amazing. They can also manipulate objects and disrupt many parts of logistics, healthcare, delivery or the military. How will this impact your business? Are you prepared?
Another disruptive concept is the blockchain technology which is much broader than Bitcoin or Ethereum. Coins or tokens are just a financial use cases of the blockchain. A blockchain is a decentralized, immutable ledger. It can be used to record transactions involving digital assets without a central authority. The blockchain technology has the potential to drastically lower the cost structure of any industry including Banking, Supply Chain Management, Energy, Healthcare, Governments, Insurance, Transportation, Cloud Storage or Real Estate and many more.
While some focus on the technology itself it is equally important to investigate and mitigate the human aspects of such a disruption. How does such a change impact people, processes, the customer expectation and experience or your own workforce? How do you shift your own company into the future? How do you build a sustainable and a capable talent force?
