OUR TED TALKS PICKS FOR NOVEMBER

POSTED BY EDWARD ON 5TH NOVEMBER 2018

At the start of each month a quick browse of TED provides food for thought. This month’s picks link to a recent discussion points surrounding innovation in the maritime industry and the convergence of innovative technology into a commercially available package, and team working methods. 


The Convergence of Blockchain, Machine Learning, and the Cloud | Steve Lund| TEDxBYU

Whilst as a business we are very aware of how commercially available these technologies are, this talk provides weighting to the possibilities that have been highlighted for different industries. For example, Steve Lund talks initially about companies involved in maritime logistics and the overhaul that this technology is aiding. This mirrors the arguments put forwards in ‘A New Face for the Shipping Industry: Tech Makeover?’. 

Steve Lund is encouraging society and businesses to increase their receptivity to new technologies and this can only have a positive effect. Knowledge provides the basis for exploration and experiment and the reservations that some industries and businesses have about new technologies can only be combated through experimentation and feedback loops with the companies developing the technology.
