Jack Uldrich’s “Friday Future 15:” November 15, 2019

Posted in Future, Future 15, Futurist, Think, Uncategorized

Think: It isn’t rocket science, if you want to think better you need to read more. How Reading Makes You More Intelligent and Empathetic. (I’m currently reading Toni Morrison’s Beloved.)

Think Twice: Big law firms need to think twicethey are on thin ice! Traditional Law Firms Must Adapt or Die.

Think Visually: For those who prefer not to take my earlier advice about reading more, here’s a 4-minute video clip of me discussing the future of healthcare on CNBC.

Think Different: If you need help thinking differently, you might want to look to Africa: The Global South is Redefining Tech Innovation.

Think Smarter: If you are in the manufacturing sector, the time to begin thinking smarter about predictive maintenance was yesterday! The next best time? Today. This article can help. Rethinking IoT Predictive Maintenance.

Think Harder: To my clients in farming and agribusiness, here is an issue you to need to be thinking long and hard about: “Insect Apocalypse” Poses Risk to All Life on Earth.”

Think Like a Futurist: A nice short article from fellow futurist Ross Dawson: Agile Legislation Must be at the Heart of the Future of Government. (Bonus Tip: I encourage you to sign up for Ross’ free newsletter, Keeping Ahead of the Future.)

Think in Questions: Can we print houses? That’s a good question to ask if you’re in the construction industry: Meet Icon, the Tiny Company That Wants to Disrupt the Trillion-Dollar Construction Industry with 3D Printing.

Think 10X: Want to know a trend that could grow 10X very fast? Self-driving cars. Here’s why: Company Wants to Retrofit Your Car So It Can Drive Itself on Highways in 2020.

Think Better: If you’re in the financial services industry, it is time to think better: Ignoring Women Costs Finance Firms $700 Billion a Year.

Think Faster: Trucks can’t move much faster, but leaders in the trucking industry will need to think faster if they want to keep apace of the extraordinary advances transforming their industry: The Technological Transformation of Trucking

Think Radically: Elon Musk Says Neuralink Could Bring AI “Superintelligence” to the Brain. Radical, yes; wise? That’s up for debate. 

Think Anew: A good example of a company thinking anew: Walmart Canada Rolls Out Blockchain-Based Freight and Payment System.

Think Sustainably: A wonderful example of a company thinking more sustainably: Ocean Cleanup Starts Harvesting Plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Think the Unthinkable: A company called Air Protein just created “meat” from air. It is not as unthinkable as you may think.

Want to think again? You can always revisit last week’s “Future 15”.

Until next week: Don’t stop thinking about the future! But also never forget “It is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than think your way into a new way of acting“!
