Host in Ireland founder, Garry Connolly interviews Nabeel Mahmood – Global CXO, Technology Executive, Board Director, Nomad Futurist, on Bits, Bytes & Banter.

Nabeel is driven by one question – what’s next? So Garry asks “what is your Crystal Ball is telling you” on society, technology, the health of planet ??

Technology is advancing at a dashing pace with new concepts and designs to potentially simplify human life.  Today; we live in the most cutting-edge era, where creating an iron man suit, a hypercar, high-speed hyperloop, E2-DR, Gita and Sophia are a norm.  All of this is no longer a dream, it is the ultimate expression of intellect & knowledge.  We are a generation startup… and this is just the beginning of the immense change yet to come. #datarush

Why should we care about the future?  To start with, technology is in virtually everything we touch.  It’s time for people to realize and get the image of a computer being a rectangular object on a desk or in a server room. These days computers are in our pockets, cars, refrigerators, tv – pretty much everything we own and touch.   Peering into that which hasn’t happened yet is a perilous business; yet there are compelling and tangible dreams such as self-driving ride-sharing, supersonic & hypersonic travel, perceptual computing, data toss, transformative nuclear fusion, genetic engineering, quantum computing – our world will be transformed by 2050.

As we look to a future powered by a partnership between computers and humans, it’s important that we address the core challenges head-on.  How do we ensure that AI is designed and used responsibly? How do we establish ethical principles to protect people? How should we govern its use? And how will AI impact employment and jobs?  Privacy, Security and Safety of the human are the core ethical principals to be considered by the government, regulators, businesses, and society as we move forward.  While none of us have a crystal ball that shows us the future, we do know what we’re all going to need to spend more time listening to and learning from each other.

“Change is good ! Don’t let yesterday take too much of today and the thought of tomorrow hold you back, learn to live today; cherish the present!’ Nabeel Mahmood
