The Disruptors is a podcast about the future of all of us where look at the technologies, trends and societal norms shaping our collective future. Imagine longform TED style conversations with the world’s most disruptive top minds, sharing their passion projects and how advances in genomics, space travel, connected devices, artificial intelligence and other exponential tech is converging to create the future of tomorrow – that’s what The Disruptors is all about. Two minds are better than one, and the purpose of this podcast is to create a worldwide “neural network” of connected human creators to tackle society’s big problems like climate change, aging, inequality, disease… you name it. The #1 problem plaguing humanity is short term thinking. If in-depth, unscripted conversations with the scientists, startups and thought leaders daring to dream bigger and focused on AI, biotech, robotics and the future of mankind is your cup of tea, you have come to the right place. Scarcity and abundance are fundamentally at odds and as we enter this autonomous era of great societal change, innovation and apolitical conversation are more important than ever.
