#11 - How to predict new waves of technology to deliver remarkable value

An interview with Christian Kromme, author of Humanification

My guest on this weeks’ podcast is Christian Kromme, Author of “Humanification – go digital, stay human”

He’s a visionary thinker, futurist keynote speaker, and author.
Christian was an innovative tech-entrepreneur for 15 years until he discovered the DNA behind disruptive innovation and how to use this to predict the next big wave of technological disruption.
Now he’s is one of the most in-demand futurist keynote speakers, speaking in front of tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, business leaders and policymakers about the radical impact of disruptive technologies on humans and organizations.

In today’s podcast, we explore the key question – how we can go digital and stay human. How should we apply technology so that it strengthens the unique characteristics of people to deliver remarkable value. Here are some of Christians quotes:

“I was a tech entrepreneur in the tech business, software business until I discovered the DNA behind disruptive innovation, how to predict disruptive innovation, and how to predict, basically, the next big wave of technological disruption.

I really think that there is a bright future in front of us, but we have to align with nature again.

Together, we can do more. We are wiser. We are smarter. We are more creative by sharing our thoughts, our ideas. I think that our future is there where we are connected as one’s species and solve problems on a global scale, like foods, diseases, and stuff, and solve the problems as a network of humans, like one organism.

I think people will be pushed to their purpose, to be the fullest what they can be.

…what you see is that artificial intelligence, or machine learning, or deep learning enables technology to disappear, to make it invisible. If things become invisible, especially technology, then they start to have the biggest impact.”


By listening to this interview, you will learn three things:

  1. How can we anticipate disruption before it happens?
  2. How can we turn disruption & change into opportunity and advantage?
  3. How by reimagining things on a humanity scale, we will be capable of solving the world’s biggest problems in a very short amount of time.
