Oh no… (fire, steam, silicon, AI etc)

The last few weeks have had me thinking about how disruptive technologies have, and have had for an incredibly long time, the power to change the way we live, work, and interact with one another. In all aspects of our lives, from transportation to communication, these advancements have the potential to revolutionise entire industries and make our lives easier, more efficient, and more connected.

One area, in particular, I pay close attention to in which disruptive technologies have made a significant impact is in the world of events. Event technology, such as virtual and augmented reality, drones, and live streaming, has transformed the way we plan, execute, and attend events.

Virtual and augmented reality, for example, allows attendees to fully immerse themselves in the event experience, whether they’re physically present or not. Drones have made it possible to capture breathtaking aerial footage and provide unique perspectives of events, while live streaming has made it possible for people all over the world to tune in and participate in real-time.

But, the benefits of disruptive technologies extend far beyond the realm of events.

In the field of transportation, self-driving cars and electric vehicles are making our roads safer and more sustainable. In healthcare, telemedicine and wearable technology are making it easier for patients to access medical care and for doctors to monitor their patients’ health remotely.

Personally, I have seen firsthand how disruptive technologies have improved my daily life. I rely on my smartwatch to track my fitness (steps, I’m far from fit), monitor my sleep, and remind me to take my medication. Combined with my Google Nest Mini, and Google Assistant on my phone and in my car, these technologies not only make my life more convenient but also help me stay healthy and connected.

Of course, as with any new technology, there are concerns and challenges to be addressed. Privacy and security are major concerns, as well as the potential for job loss as automation becomes more prevalent. But overall, I think the benefits of disruptive technologies far outweigh the risks.

Disruptive technologies are changing the way we live, work and interact with one another. They offer a wealth of opportunities to improve our lives and make the world a better place. Let’s embrace them and use them to their full potential.
