- Is your audience full of smart people who are frustrated with technology that makes life more complicated, instead of making it simple?
- Does your audience want to be part of bringing more human-friendly products into the world?
- Is your audience worried about being a human in a world of Robots and Artificial Intelligence?
I’d love to share my passion for human-friendly technology with your audience.
Are the Robots Coming for Our Jobs?
Well, yes. But not all of our jobs and we’ve still got about 10 years to prepare. It will be a monumental shift, but we do have the chance to create a society based on what’s best about being human.
This talk will inform and empower your audience. Your audience might not have Artificial Intelligence on the top of their reading list, but when they learn that we will start to see job losses in less than 10 years, they will be eager to hear how they can prepare themselves for this massive economic and cultural shift. Fear is the last thing we need in order to make this transition. While experts disagree on the timing and extent of job loss, interestingly they agree that Empathy, Compassion, and Love –the unique aspects of being human –will be our greatest assets and open the possibility for an elevated existence for our society in the new reality of humans, robots, and Artificial Intelligence coexisting.
Simple Isn’t Easy
How we ended up with a baked potato button, 36 radio presets, and constant software updates.
This talk, which can be tailored to technology producers or consumers, presents a light-hearted but enlightening view of our current situation of ever-more complex products, all while consumers ask for Simplicity. I’ll discuss some of the organizational habits that lead teams to focus on adding features, usually without evaluating the trouble new features will cause. I’ll conclude with specific tips for consumers to make their voices heard and cultivate the value of simplicity in product design.
Got a Great Idea for a Product or App?
To save money, to save your sanity, and actually realize your dream: Design it Before you Build it.
Is there anything better than the sublime feeling of Having a Great Idea? Most of us immediately start to wonder and research, “How much that would cost to develop?” In this simple question, you might unwittingly torpedo your great idea. In this talk, I’ll explain why the best chance you have requires ignoring realistic questions like how much it costs, how big the market is, and what the market wants until you’ve coaxed the idea from your mind. I’ll give concrete examples of simple methods for fleshing out your idea and getting it onto paper (which might not be paper at all). I’m a firm believer that your soul needs you to answer the calling of your great idea and the world needs what you make in the process of answering that call.
