What is the point of education in a world of less work? How can educators and their institutions prepare their learners for a future transformed by AI? How do we educate for irreplaceability? And what is blockchain, anyway?
In this episode, our guest is Tomer Garzberg, founder and CEO of GRONADE, an enterprise growth labs and future-of-work company in Sydney, Australia. Tomer is a technology entrepreneur and innovation advisor, and has worked with some of the world’s most notable companies, blending the worlds of data, AI, behaviours and creativity. An advocate for disruption, Tomer likes to ask big questions about what the future of work is going to look like. He’s an IBM Global Entrepreneur, TED speaker and innovation advisor, and he believes we should be thinking differently about education if we’re going to prepare graduates for the real future of work.
As a confirmed advocate of the potential for artificial intelligence to improve the human condition, Tomer’s argument is persuasive. Whether you agree with him or not, his perspective provides a valuable perspective on the opportunities and challenges that technology will bring humans in the near future. Among the many insights that emerged through our conversation with Tomer were:
- technology has one role: to shorten the distance between fulfilment and desire
- in a world transformed by AI, we’ll need more skilled translators, who can communicate the benefits of new technologies more simply, to more people, and more immediately.
- in order to become more human, we need to resist comfort zones, enact our curiosity and interrogate our behaviours.
