Think Thin: MIT is now working on creating super-thin, flexible solar panels that can be coated or painted onto almost any surface. This means that soon houses, cars, boats and robots could have a new, clean way to help power themselves. If the technology scales, it could be a game-changer. Think Different: The jury is…

  Think Smart: I just returned from Bowling Green, Kentucky where I delivered the keynote at the Kentucky Commodities Annual conference. Among the trends I discussed was artificial intelligence. No sooner had I ended my talk than I came across this informative article: AI for Better Crops. Think Even Smarter: Artificial intelligence–especially ChatGPT and OpenAI–have rightfully…

Editor’s note: I am on vacation for the next two weeks. This week’s “Friday Future 5” will be abbreviated. Think Big: There is a saying among futurists, “Nuclear fusion is the future of energy–and always will be.” This joke will likely have legs for the next decade or two, but last week’s fusion breakthrough was…

Think Ambiguously: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times …” I could not help but think of this quote as I read these two diametrically opposed articles–both of which are true. The first article, 9 Astonishing Ways that Living Standards have Improved Around the World is optimistic in nature and highlights…

Think: This past summer, I keynoted a number of banking events, including addressing the Minnesota and Wisconsin Bankers Association as well as the University of Wisconsin’s Graduate School of Banking. At the later event, I met Larry Grant. Larry wears many hats but he regularly host’s Today’s Banker Digest and we recently collaborated on a…

Think Fast: I am fond of saying “Today is the slowest rate of change you’ll ever experience again.” To this end, here are just three articles from yesterday’s news that caught my eye: An All-Electric Airplane Takes Its Maiden Flight, Tiny Oregon Town Hosts First Hybrid Clean Power Plant, and Amazon Has a New Plan…
