Who is Not Impossible?
AI for the Sake of Humanity - Jekyll vs. Hyde
Say the letters "A.I." and you may imagine of Mr. Hyde...but what if Dr. Jekyll appeared instead? The concept of artificial intelligence, or A.I., connotes thoughts of science-fiction, Big Brother and a scary, robot-controlled world set in a dystopian future. But what about the concept of A.I. for good? Not Impossible's founder Mick Ebeling discusses how A.I. has the incredible potential to make the world a better place. Citing tangible solutions from around the world as well as solutions that are being developed at his Not Impossible Labs (such as remote vaccine delivery by drones, smart sensors that register seizures and tremors caused by Parkinson's, to intelligent electronics in prosthetics and therapeutic gait-trainers for Cerebral Palsy), Mick focuses on the most cutting edge and forward thinking ideas, advancements, and inventions in the A.I. space...but for good. By changing the narrative of what artificial intelligence can mean for the future of humanity to what it should mean, we can influence and inspire an entirely new generation of mad scientists.
Making the Next Industrial Revolution
Industrial Revolution 2.0—itʼs the next turning point in human history and we’re right in the middle of it. Industrial Revolution 2.0 has been about the birth, adolescence and young adulthood of the Internet. Itʼs been about communicating, relating, evaluating and buying. From social media to the Maker Movement, this revolution has shifted the way we live, work and interact with one another. It revolves around the newfound global accessibility of making our own solutions. Creator of one of TIME magazine’s “Top 50 Inventions” with little more than $70 of over-the-counter supplies, Mick Ebeling is uniquely qualified to discuss the factors that make this the most exciting time in modern history, and how to leverage those factors for the benefit of business and the betterment of society.
