The future of technology is both uncertain and disruptive, requiring many of our current systems in business and life to radically change in the next decade. With the speed of technology and AI advancements moving exponentially, it is crucial for our society, particularly our corporate and professional leaders to understand technology and embrace the changes of the future, in order to future proof our workforce and businesses.

Penny Locaso, Founder and CEO of BKindred is an expert in technology and AI. After leaving her successful sixteen year career in change systems at Shell, she has become one of Australia’s most well-regarded entrepreneurs. Her knowledge on artificial intelligence and technology has been called upon internationally, and at home including consultation for the Senate and the national curriculum.

In today’s episode of Be The Drop, Penny explores the potential for humans in the space of technology to amplify happiness in a world that is largely yet to be understood. Penny’s concerns for the future proof of humanism in tomorrow’s technology is something we need to consider, it’s a conversation that could ultimately help us to lead more fulfilling and successful lives.
