Episode Description

The buzz: “Impossible is not a fact. It is an opinion” (Muhammad Ali).A unique clustering of inventions in the century after the U.S. Civil War improved the American and European standard of living – human well-being – more than any period before or after, with advances in everything from food and energy to health and work. Can our current innovation explosion have a similar impact despite unintended consequences? Three futurists speak. Frank Diana, TCS: “I cannot discover that anyone knows enough about anything on this earth definitely to say what is and what is not possible” (Henry Ford). Gerd Leonhard, Futurist: “In dealing with the future, it is far more important to be imaginative than to be right” (Alvin Toffler, Future Shock). Timo Elliott, SAP: “The real problem of humanity is that we have paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology. And it is terrifically dangerous” (E. O. Wilson). Join us for The Innovation Explosion: Replicating a Special Century?
