Disruptive thinking refers to a mindset or approach that challenges conventional ways of thinking and seeks innovative solutions to problems. It involves questioning the status quo, embracing change, and being open to new ideas. The term is often associated with disruptive innovation, a concept introduced by Clayton Christensen in the late 1990s.Key characteristics of disruptive thinking include:Questioning Assumptions: Disruptive thinkers question established norms and challenge assumptions that may be limiting progress. They are willing to ask "why" and explore alternative perspectives.Embracing Change: Disruptive thinkers are comfortable with uncertainty and change. They see change as an opportunity for improvement and innovation rather than a threat.Risk-Taking: Disruptive thinking involves taking calculated risks. It requires the courage to try new approaches and experiment with ideas that might be unconventional or unproven.Adaptability: Disruptive thinkers are adaptable and flexible. They can pivot quickly in response to new information or changing circumstances.Creativity: Creative thinking is a fundamental aspect of disruptive thinking. It involves generating novel ideas and finding unique solutions to problems.Open-Mindedness: Disruptive thinkers are open to different perspectives and are willing to learn from diverse sources. They recognize that innovation often comes from unexpected places.User-Centric Focus: Disruptive thinking often involves a deep understanding of the end-user or customer. By putting the user at the center, innovators can identify unmet needs and develop solutions that truly address them.Iterative Approach: Disruptive thinkers are not afraid to iterate and refine their ideas based on feedback and results. They understand that the path to innovation may involve multiple attempts and adjustments.Long-Term Vision: Disruptive thinking is often aligned with a long-term vision. Innovators with a disruptive mindset consider the broader impact of their ideas and aim for sustainable, transformative change.Collaboration: Disruptive thinking can be enhanced through collaboration. By working with diverse teams and drawing on a variety of skills and perspectives, innovators can create more robust and comprehensive solutions.Disruptive thinking is particularly relevant in today's fast-paced and dynamic world where industries are constantly evolving. It can lead to breakthrough innovations that transform markets, industries, and even societies. However, it also requires a willingness to challenge the status quo and a recognition that failure can be an integral part of the learning process.Support the showYou can support this show via the link below;https://www.buzzsprout.com/1718587/supporters/new

Get ready for a cinematic exploration of innovation and intellectual property as depicted in popular movies about inventors and creators. In this episode, IP Goes Pop!® co-hosts Michael Snyder and Joseph Gushue, peel back the layers of iconic movies that not only inspire us, but also shed light on the realities of building successful businesses and protecting ideas. Starting with 1988's Tucker: The Man and His Dream, your hosts dive into the story of Preston Tucker and his revolutionary automobile, the Tucker 48. This tale not only epitomizes the spirit of disrupting the status quo but also draws parallels with modern auto-innovators like Tesla. Tucker's journey sheds light on the crucial role of patents in protecting groundbreaking ideas, emphasizing the continued real-world relevance of Tucker's innovations in today's automobiles. The episode next moves through the intricate mazes of copyrights, branding, and partnerships. The Social Network, which depicts the founding of Facebook, serves as a prime example of the potential legal pitfalls that can emerge in the creation of successful companies. It delves into the entangled web of legal battles and the importance of safeguarding ideas in the tech world. This evolution, of what is now known as Meta, highlights the necessity of meticulous contracts and legal representation at different stages of bringing an idea into the world. Another extraordinary origin story is that of the McDonald's franchise, as portrayed in The Founder. While the success of the McDonald's franchise demonstrates how effective branding and strategic IP licensing can catapult a company to global recognition, this cautionary tale of partnerships offers valuable lessons for businesses of all sizes. Ultimately the McDonalds brothers lost control of their company, their name, and their IP such as the “golden arches,” when they were outmaneuvered by an emboldened Ray Kroc and a “handshake” agreement. The film Flash of Genius draws attention to the pitfalls and triumphs of patent litigation. Lesson learned are especially valuable for inventors and creators, as it underscores the complexities of litigation, the importance of having competent legal representation, and the dangers of self-representation in intellectual property matters. Listeners will come away from this episode not only entertained but also enriched with a deeper understanding of the intersection between intellectual property and popular culture. Whether you're an entrepreneur, a legal professional, a student, or simply a movie buff, IP Goes Pop!® offers a captivating and educational experience that will entertain and inform. Don't miss out on this engaging and enlightening journey through the world of IP and movies!

Ever since I started this podcast, I have been looking forward to talking with a nurse who is also a JD. Recently, I got the opportunity to have an insightful conversation with Kwamane Liddell. Kwamane is a healthcare visionary. You only need to glance at his LinkedIn profile to see the many accolades he has received from various sectors, including healthcare, business, innovation, and technology. Here are just a few examples:- He was the first African-American male to graduate from Southern Illinois University's College of Nursing.- He is an Aspen Institute Healthy Communities Fellow- He is a Johnson and Johnson JLABS Innovator- He is the Founder of Nutrible, a company that utilizes AI social workers to help families access community resources on demand.Could he have done all of this without a law degree? I'm convinced Kwamane can do whatever he puts his mind to. When he founded Nutrible, he needed to know more about the underlying causes of health disparity, which was leading to the suffering and death of his patients in the emergency room. So by furthering his education and earning a Juris Doctor degree, Kwamane became well-equipped to change health policies and address this issue. Kwamane is changing health equity, one person at a time, and in my book, he embodies the definition of a hero.

In a very thought provoking discussion, Artificial Intelligence (AI) expert, Tony Hoang, Ph.D., traced the evolution of Gen AI, highlighted the many benefits, and also shared his concerns about the irresponsible and abusive use of this technology. What got my attention were the following realities:Innovators often prioritize speed over responsible AI development, leading to potential negative consequences.How easy it is to create a software-generated duplicate of someone's voice or video avatar without their consent, using online content such as images and videos.There are no current safeguards to prevent someone from exploiting AI-generated images of someone else, making it a challenge for parents to advise their children on how to protect themselves.Time Stamps00:02 -- Introduction00:49 -- Dr. Tony Hoang's Professional Highlights02:47 -- AI's evolution, data science, machine learning, and generative AI10:05 -- Generative AI and cybersecurity14:07 -- AI and cybersecurity threats in the enterprise18:45 -- AI-generated explicit content and its impact on teenagers22:48 --AI-generated content and its potential impact on society30:05 -- AI-generated fake reviews and their impact on businesses34:55 -- The potential dangers and benefits of generative AIMemorable Tony Hoang Quotes/Statements"Right now, there is a big emphasis on the on the client-side of obviously, privacy and security, on the development side, there isn't primarily because of the fact that everyone wants to rush to the top.""So, what they're doing is they are taking all of the responsible AI committees, all of the privacy committees, and they basically just laid everyone off in the past six months. And that's kind of frightening to see, because what that means is when you fire your responsible AI committee, what that signals is they want to go fast, because these committees actually slow them down in order to accomplish their goal.""The stuff that really worries me the most about Gen AI isn't phishing attacks, or any of that stuff; my biggest fear right now is the replication of human images, or video or voices.""One of the ways that you could use Gen AI to take down a competitor, you would go on their website onto the product review, hit it with AI generated responses and just flood it with negative one star or two star reviews. So that's a way to destroy a company's reputation using Gen AI, and we're actually seeing that right now.""There's no way for anybody to detect AI generated content right now in an automated fashion."Connect with Host Dr. Dave Chatterjee and Subscribe to the PodcastPlease subscribe to the podcast, so you don't miss any new episodes!

Explore becoming Superhuman here: https://superhumanrevenue.beehiiv.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS Cooling equipment drives nearly 10% of global warming through energy use, food waste from spoilage, and the release of ultra-potent greenhouse gases. The problem is growing rapidly as developing countries adopt more cooling. Manik's start-up Therma uses sensors, data science, and controls to dynamically manage the operation of AC units to save businesses money while cutting emissions. After early struggles trying to digitize food safety logs for users, Manik realized he had to fully automate temperature monitoring instead of just moving paper forms to mobile devices. Adoption and growth took off. To thrive as an entrepreneur, Manik recommends believing you can shape the future through sheer persistence, maintaining a higher purpose beyond personal gain, and surrounding yourself with great people. AI promises big climate benefits by optimizing energy systems, predicting weather and usage patterns, monitoring illegal deforestation, improving recycling, and more. BEST MOMENTS "If food waste were a country, it would be like the fourth largest emitter." "You can actually create the future...If you stick with something and try and work on it, often good things happen." "Do it for some reason beyond yourself...It makes it worthwhile to wake up." "Every technology stack being used to tackle climate change can be augmented with AI in one or multiple ways."

Over the past half century, the semiconductor technology landscape has been evolving rapidly, underpinning the digital transformations we witness across the various spheres of life today. Sometimes referred to as integrated circuits or microchips, semiconductors are the backbone of modern electronics. In devices of every type, from simple gadgets to complex systems like computers, cars and household appliances, semiconductors have led to them being smaller or faster or more reliable. More inconspicuously, semiconductors are now enabling innovations in healthcare to flourish. One company, imec, stands as a vanguard in this area. Their work promises to enable smart health concepts such as precision medicine and genomics to be brought within everyone's reach, resulting in personalized treatments with better outcomes and lower costs. Joining the latest episode of the “Ideas to Innovation Season 3” podcast from Clarivate is Peter Peumans, Chief Technology Officer - Healthcare Technologies and Senior Fellow at Belgium-based imec. He and Ed White of Clarivate discuss how innovations in semiconductors led imec to be named one of 36 companies in this year's Innovators to Watch report from Clarivate. The report – guided by Ed in his role as vice president and principal analyst for IP and Innovation Research at Clarivate –identifies organizations that demonstrate both exceptional potential and above-the-bar innovation excellence.
In this episode of Conversations on the Creek, host Rob Savitsky takes the show on the road to the InsureTech Connect (ITC) Vegas '23 Conference to have bite-sized discussions with several P&C innovators around the most pressing industry trends. Guests include Rose Hall (SVP, Head of Innovation, Americas; AXA XL); Ryan Lockwood (Senior Manager, Data Platform; Toyota - Connected Analytic Services); Stephanie Behnke (VP, Solutions and Consulting; Hi Marley); Tony Cañas (Co-Founder; Insurance Nerds; Senior Recruiting Partner; Goodwin Recruiting); Kurt Jackson (Global Head of Sales; ICEYE). From the role of AI in claims to the evolution of telematics to carrier DE&I initiatives, each micro-podcast segment stands on its own. See below for the time stamps of each segment to jump to a particular topic and/or guest: [2:05] – Rose Hall of AXA XL shares how the company is providing more proactive preventative risk management services and additional value beyond the insurance policy to better meet the needs of their commercial lines clients. Between bringing more risk reducing technologies to businesses and having risk engineers now also leveraging aggregated market information, AXA XL is poised to help businesses mitigate their risk while building long-lasting insurance partnerships. [7:55] – Ryan Lockwood of Toyota - Connected Analytic Services describes how Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are transforming telematics insurance in their connected cars. Learn how Toyota is providing flexible options for Toyota customers to opt into sharing telematics data with the industry's largest carriers, as well as offering an embedded insurance offering through their MGA, Toyota Insurance. [18:01] - Stephanie Behnke of Hi Marley defines what “lovable” customer experiences look like and provides her perspective on how and when to deploy AI when texting with claimants. Between advances in sentiment analysis, whereby bots can alert adjustors to customer frustration, to being able to pull in multiple parties like a body shop to grouping multiple text messaging chains together, there are lots of new tactics for carriers to consider for helping their customers when they need it most. [25:06] - Tony Cañas of Insurance Nerds and Goodwin Recruiting provides his take on what carriers need to attract and retain Millennials and Generation Z workers. Tony also dives into what he's seeing carriers do to improve Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I). “Millennials expect diversity. Gen Z will demand it.” Tony makes the point that DE&I cannot just be a check the box item, and that the carriers that truly embrace DE&I as a priority are the ones who will succeed in winning on talent. [36:26] - Kurt Jackson of ICEYE discusses how advances in satellite imagery and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology is enabling unprecedented responses to changes on Earth. With access to accurate, high resolution SAR images across the Earth during day or night, insurers now can make better decisions when natural catastrophes occur, improving their claims reserving and knowing how to better disperse their claims adjustors to homes and businesses.

In patent and copyright law, injunctions are now a subject of significant policy debate. Innovators say they are unable to stop predatory infringement. Creators state they are unable to stop large-scale piracy websites. If so, this undermines the rewards promised by the intellectual property system and devalues the commercial assets that drive the global innovation economy in new technologies and creative works.
