Introduction to guest:
Grant Renier is the founder and chairman of Intuality AI, a company that uses Intuitive General Intelligence to predict near and future events, whilst taking into account the fundamentals of human behaviour.
In this one, we talk about how predictive technology can be used to help stock pickers, sports gamblers and how it’s going to be extremely important for medical diagnosis in the future.
We get the system’s predictions for Coronavirus in 2021 and discuss how AI is going to change the world, including topics like the job market, having relationships with electronic devices and the future of our planet.
This one is a fascinating conversation and, if you’re interested in peering into the future, you will enjoy listening.
Before I leave you to enjoy the show, don’t forget to check out our brand new programme, Finding Your Path, on mhvpath.com – Gaz and I are collating all of the best tips, tactics and lessons that we have learned throughout life, and on this podcast, and we are refining them into bitesized programmes for you to benefit from.
Key quotes and takeaways from the show:
Human decision making influences our reality – good, bad or indifferent – so to be able to predict the future we need to understand how human decisions are made.
Predicting the future is not just about statistics, it’s understanding what people will do with those statistics and how they will behave as a result. People’s behaviour forms the future.
“Success,” in this context, doesn’t mean 100% right, it means better than everything else available.
There is a new revolution upon us. First it was the industrial revolution, where machines helped us with physical tasks, now it’s the intellectual revolution, where machines help us with cognitive tasks.
STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
“The population is going to level out at around 11 billion.”
“The birth rate around the world is less than 2:1.”
All decisions are made intuitively! No matter how much study you do, how much analysis you do, it all comes down to intuition.
“Decision making is a series of failures.”
Don’t become a slave to history!
Question of the day:
“What key skills should people be learning to thrive in the future?”
