Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Group Chief Executive at Kin + Carta Europe , delivering end-to-end digital services for the world’s leading businesses. What are CEOs for? For me, our main role is to feed, drive and energize a team. This is often best done in person and in small doses, although it can be almost as effective remotely. It’s a question of how you can be ‘with the people’ when and wherever they need you. CEOs are experienced hybrid workers. In most organizations, whether they're global or have a few offices in one country, the CEO cannot be in the same place as their entire team at the same time. In many ways, our working lives haven’t necessarily changed that much post-pandemic. At a time when teams are often split between home and office, we need to make the most of every interaction we have with our colleagues. This has meant dialing up the need to be more considerate and open to listening—whatever the conversation, … [Read more...] about How CEOs Can Bring Out Their Human Side In A Hybrid World

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin So much of work can feel transactional, cold, even mind-numbing. But it doesn’t have to be that way. As Dr. Robert Waldinger , professor of psychiatry, director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development , author of The Good Life: Lessons from the World's Longest Scientific Study of Happiness , and a Zen master, said in an interview, “Maybe you don’t like making the widgets, but maybe you like the person you’re next to making the widgets. And that can really make a difference.” He contends that the people who are happiest and healthiest have warm connections with others . “Many of us spend more of our waking life at work than we spend anywhere else,” Waldinger explains. “So what is really a tragedy is to treat work as though it’s just something you get through so you can live the rest of your life, because it is much of your life. That artificial division is something that’s worth really looking at and calling into … [Read more...] about Do You Want Better Performance? Help People Strengthen Their Relationships
Over the past two days, I must have had 20 conversations with people anxious about the impacts of AI on their work and livelihoods. Of course, I might have been seeking out those conversations because, as an academic and contributor to several business publications, I am also anxious! Creators, artists, coaches, programmers, doctors, writers, experts, and thought leaders are grappling with the implications of generative AI such as ChatGPT , DALL-E , and other advanced AI products on their jobs, passions, and income. On the one hand, it may seem like a dream come true. You can benefit from AI helping you work faster. Perhaps, better. On the other hand: So does everyone else and their hamster. Especially since it seems that anyone can look like an expert and creator with the help of AI. It can, after all, write a job application good enough to be short-listed, pass portions of the U.S. medical licensing exam and the bar exam , produce code , text, and sellable art … [Read more...] about Does ChatGPT mean the end of ‘thought leaders’?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Romi Stein is CEO & cofounder of OpenLegacy , leading its strategic vision of digital-driven integration for legacy systems. In previous blogs, I have touched on automation from different aspects or levels. On the micro level, we have seen that back-of-house activities can, and should, be as automated as possible for various reasons, such as economic efficiencies and compliance. But at the customer-facing side of things, automation should support human activities. On the macro level, combining AI and automated processes can provide startling new abilities and opportunities. Machine learning and neural networks utilizing existing resources and processes are already beginning to make waves (Walle and ChatGPT are just the beginning). There are many ways to look at technological development, most often in three or four stages: invention, innovation and diffusion—or R&D, growth, maturity and decline. … [Read more...] about Automation Is A Strategy, Not (Only) A Means Or An End

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin CEO of AIoT chip company XMOS , Mark Lippett is a technology leader with 25 years’ experience in startup, scale-up and blue-chip companies. The annual United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP) always brings technology under the sustainability spotlight. As the global climate issue becomes more pressing, a recent study by McKinsey is demanding widespread commitment to environmental protection targets to realize a 1.5°C trajectory by 2030. One focus in 2022 was semiconductors—given their environmentally taxing production and their application within devices that consume power throughout their lifetime. Of course, realizing more sustainable methods of chip manufacture and energy-aware device functionality can be a major advance in reducing overall emissions. The Semiconductor Climate Consortium (SCC) was formed in November last year, comprising 60 founding members who attended COP27 in Egypt to outline … [Read more...] about Semiconductor Sustainability: COP27 And The Potential Of Chips To Save Energy
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin A new ACE2 decoy mechanism efficiently neutralizes a variety of Covid-19 variants, including Omicron strains. With the continuous evolution of the SARS-CoV-2 virus over the last three years, the pathogen has become more efficient at infecting our cells and evading our immune defenses. One crucial aspect of this efficiency is affinity to the ACE2 receptor, a major selection criterion in virus evolution. The ACE2 decoy mimics the host cell ACE2, similarly engaging the virus and inhibiting viral entry to a real cell. Using receptors as decoys is not a novel concept. In connection to SARS-CoV-2, ACE2 decoys were tested against closely related viruses, SARS-1 and HIV, in recent decades. The decoy did not come to fruition against these viruses for myriad reasons. For SARS-1, the strategy showed some signs of reduced symptoms in mouse models, but the outbreak calmed before further animal and human testing could continue. For HIV, … [Read more...] about Will Receptor Decoys Both Prevent And Treat SARS-CoV-2 Infection?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Harvard economist Raj Chetty is doing something remarkable, and it ought to be a model for how the government and the private sector can improve the lives of American citizens. His approach isn't political. It’s pragmatic . Even more admirable: he’s willing to face irksome facts about how inequality of opportunity is almost physically rooted in neighborhoods . It’s all about zip codes. You are who you are, economically and educationally, to a great degree because of where you live . Once you land in a zip code, it will launch you into new opportunities, or it will limit you. Where you’re going depends more than we want to admit on where you are right now. Chetty is the William A. Ackman Professor of Economics at Harvard. He focuses on economic inequality and social mobility: the ability of each generation of a family to enjoy a quality of life better than the previous one. Multiple studies have found that the U.S. is … [Read more...] about A Revolutionary Move For A Better Future
