Today's episode of Devo Talks features an intriguing Skype interview with Nikola Danaylov from Toronto. Now if you don’t know Nik or Socrates as many of us call him, he's an author, keynote speaker, futurist, strategic advisor, and philosopher. His book “Conversations with the Future: 21 Visions for the 21st Century” is a #1 Amazon Bestseller and his podcast, Singularity.FM is one of the most widely sought out podcasts in his niche.
During this show, we discussed all sorts of interesting tech topics from futuristic AI toothbrushes, to the dangers of social media, to the importance of having a personal code of ethics when developing software. It’s a jam-packed episode, and I think it fits perfectly with what this show is all about. So, whether you are at home, at work or on the road, I encourage you to listen with an open mind, ready to be inspired and learn something new. So let’s dive right in!
