What Scott Amyx Talks About:
Strive: How Doing the Things Most Uncomfortable Leads to Success
Drawing on his own powerful story of an impoverished immigrant frequently told that he would mount to nothing, Amyx, now a celebrated venture capitalist and futurist, describes his meteoric rise from obscurity to prominence, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not intellect, opportunities or even network but pursuing personal change that’s uncomfortable. In this book, Scott takes readers into his defining life moments and stories from some of the most unlikely individuals who persevered through change to become outrageously successful. He also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in high performance.
The Human Race: How Humans Can Survive in the Robotic Age
In this keynote, Scott explores the imminent net job loss from artificial intelligence, robotics, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution and its impact on income inequality and rise in populism and nationalism that are sweeping across the globe. He explores the advantages and disadvantages of basic universal income.
Scott emphasizes the need to pursue job training and labor force development in human to human services that leverage our ability to empathize with the human condition. The empathy business models and services will become the bedrock of post Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Exponential Disruption: Is Your Organization Ready for the Era of Human-Machine Innovation?
Scott Amyx explores exponential technologies that have the potential to transform human society in ways we can’t imagine. From cloud computing to quantum computing, speech interface to brain computer interface, conventional materials to graphene, oil & gas to nuclear fusion, robots to transhumanoids, we are embarking in an uncharted era of human-machine innovation. How can companies ready themselves? Or is your business at risk from advances in technology? If your company is not embracing technological change, it may be in danger of becoming obsolete.
The Future of Human Intelligence
Singularity University founder Ray Kurzweil predicts that AI will exceed human intelligence by 2029. That’s much sooner than he’s prior prediction of 2045. So the question is what do we do, so we’re not left behind?
So how can we ensure that we are not left behind by machines? Brain computer interface may help. Traditionally, this type of technology has been used to help people with dementia, strokes, and brain injuries.
But now startups such as Neuralink and Kernel are developing ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interface to measure the activity of neurons. They envision a network of tiny electrodes linked to your brain that can communicate wirelessly with the world. The Internet of Humans. The technology could enhance memory and cognitive powers and make it possible to translate your thoughts into text, images or commands.
Scott is not only smart on the Mobile, Wearables and IoT industries, he's enjoyable to be around
