And if we don’t know, how can we bestow it onto something we create? Perhaps putting our own souls i...

For the first part, Daniel looks at the mind in the machine. So far, artificial intelligence operates a lot like a bett...

Have you made a resolution to be more productive in the new year? Productivity is important, of course — we all want to reach our goals in a reasonable amount of time, after all! But as Daniel Anstandig points out in this episode of Innovation19, we often judge our productivity by the amount of tasks we complete in a day, regardless of the importance of those tasks.

So many of us have been working from home since the beginning of the pandemic that it’s hard to imagine commuting to an office again. Besides saving us an average of $13,000 a year on transportation costs, research has shown that workers get more accomplished in a shorter period of time when we work from home. On the other hand, when employees are together in person, it fosters a greater sense of community and a stronger company cu...

Daniel Anstandig breaks down the state of broadcast ad sales in 2021 on this episode of Innovation19. He’s joined by Tracy Gilliam, the veteran broadcast executive who founded Futuri’s TopLine sales system because she knew that “every station has a story.” Each ad client is trying to reach a specific type of consumer, and while radio and television stations could rely on gross audience numbers to sell their reach in the past, it’s ...

Targeted ads and media content are convenient for users and efficient for businesses, but films like Netflix’s The Social Dilemma have raised serious questions about what they're doing to us culturally. The film argues that targeting contributes to an epidemic of division in our society, allowing everyone to live in an echo chamber of their own opinions, stifling empathy and growth. But in this episode, Daniel explains that the...

In this episode, Daniel explains why news media outlets should be turning to AI systems, like Futuri’s TopicPulse, to analyze trends and predict what ...
