Is the second season of ‘Raised by Wolves’ better than the first one? It’s hard to tell for us but what we know is that Inflection Points, your favorite podcast about technology and big ideas, is coming back and it packs quite a punch!
It’s been a while so here’s a short recap. In the first season of Inflection Points we took a closer look at the concept of Infinite Enterprise, discussing it, testing it, and seeing if the ideology actually held water. We applied it to different sectors and verticals such as retail and healthcare, looked at the rise of e-sports gaming through the lens of networking. We assessed how the workplace has changed and will continue to change. We learn a lot.
Now that the season two is here, it’s time to take it up a notch.
The idea of Infinite Enterprise isn’t the only one concept in the ocean. Others have big thoughts on what the future holds, too. What world do the leaders in the aforementioned sectors see for our future? Does the future they envision line up with the Infinite Enterprise or challenge it? Are tech entrepreneurs building solutions because they see specific problems in our world that only scalable and infinitely distributed networking solutions can solve?
Join Carla Guzetti and Tim Harrison from the Office of CTO as they decode future with virtual reality (VR) experts, leaders in robots and drones, cloud-based networking gurus, application developers, visionaries of biometrics, and many more.
