1/ Organisations need generalist advisers who are not attached to their experience and expertise. Fresh eyes + deep understanding of individuals across cultural divides will mark emerging consulting paradigms. This will put pressure on business schools.
2/ In the words of @davidsrose "All companies designed to succeed in the 20th century are doomed to fail in the 21st century."

Several reasons -

The new world is digital. The new generation is digital. Change is on an accelerating curve. Learning is not. #futureofwork
@davidsrose 3/ Companies are led by people trained on industrial age methods by industrial age academics in industrial age institutions. Leadership is about growing existing portfolios by scaling. #Innovation means disrupting existing mindsets and methods. This is new. #futureofwork

Gli esperti lo ripetono ormai da diversi anni. Con un’alimentazione sana si prevengono fattori di rischio importanti come il sovrappeso e l’obesità. Una dieta povera dal punto di vista nutrizionale, invece, può facilitare lo sviluppo di diverse neoplasie.

Apple has a section of their website answering questions doctors may have regarding their latest #ECG technology. Where are the answers to the REAL questions #patients want to know about? For example, if I get an alert:

#AppleWatch #digitaltech #wearables #PatientAdvocacy
2) when do I confidently ignore, act upon, or wait to make actionable decisions about alerts I’ve received? #AppleWatch #digitaltech #digitalhealth #wearables #Innovation #PatientAdvocacy #healthcare #medtwitter

[THREAD] As a systematic public market investor, #VentureCapital was an asset class that felt opaque to me based on only my limited exposure of #AngelInvesting & my friends in the industry. In this article, I set the context for Unpacking Alpha in Venture Capital.
1.) It is a challenging asset class to digest & I am sure a majority of large institutional pools of capital would struggle to list more than a handful of brand name VC firms or investors.
2.) That said, top decile returns in VC are extremely impressive so I decided to take a deeper look with a view to create an ecology map & building an institutional footprint from first principles.

#NSPNsymposium18 Dalal Najib
@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

@theNASciences@NSF! The National academy is independent from govt and provides #scienceadvice and #evidence for #scipol

#CSPC2018 @ChiefSciCan mentions #Budget2018 reinvestments of 2.8B$ to create more collaborative infrastructure in govt labs and beyond. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get things right and elevate Canada in science leadership 🙌

#CSPC2018 panel on #scienceadvice starts!

@DLEKirkwood chief scientist of @NRCan says issue is not do much making sure science is valued in govt (seems it is) but to ensure evidence is used in policy. Plus, policy is inherently quicker than science.

#scipol #canpoli #cdnsci
... The challenge for new science advisors and chief scientists is to ensure that the need for #EBDM in policy is understood across the department, across govt. #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 Sarah Gallagher @csa_asc says building relationships btw scientists and policymakers (#scicomm skills helpful here!) is key

Heureuse de visiter aujourd'hui la plate-forme FAPS de fabrication additive à l'@ENS_ParisSaclay à Cachan. Une initiative de recherche stratégique de l'@UnivParisSaclay pour développer des méthodologies de fabrication dans le domaine des matériaux.
Le simplisme nourrit le populisme. Ce n’est pas parce que le monde est complexe que nous devons renoncer à l’expliquer. C’est l’objet même des réformes engagées depuis plus d’un an pour que la science et la connaissance puissent contribuer pleinement à notre projet de société.
En 2019, les crédits consacrés à la recherche s’établissent à 6,9Md€, soit une progression de 2,5 %. Sur deux ans, le budget de la recherche aura augmenté de 8 %, ce qui montre la volonté du @gouvernementFR d’investir dans le progrès des savoirs et la diffusion de l’#innovation.

#Bitcoin is bigger than all the companies that try to capitalise on its #blockchain #technology.

#Bitcoin + #IoT + #DeepLearning will transform the global political & financial system without permission.

#blockchain #LightningNetwork #fintech #blockchain #disruptiveinnovation
#Decentralisation will take time.

#Bitcoin is decentralised although still attached to a centralised world.

⚠️ This is the alpha.
⚠️ #LightningNetwork is the beta.
If you want to change society you need to change the social paradigm, or offer an incentive greater than money to discourage greed. #bitcoin #LightningNetwork ⚡️

1/ Tweetstorm a comin' cuz @IvyBGrey really likes it when I "have a conversation with an article." First of all, super 💯 helpful and useful breakdown of varying #innovation approaches, so everyone trying to do all the innovation things, please read the article, like now thanks.
2/ Is "incremental" a dirty word? No. But to most people it #feels less exciting & flashy than "#disruptive." Yes, I said #feels. Bc most ppl probably will not read Ivy's excellent article or this tweetstorm bc they're not on Twitter. To them all this sounds/#feels like jargon.
2 / Exhibit A / From @DCaseyF who is now 5.7% as famous as @RealCarrotTop, who is in turn is now only 0.8% as Twitter famous as @EmrgencyKittens: geeklawblog.com/2016/09/im-wor…

Let me share my learnings at @ithoughtadviser. Firstly, I believe firmly that my primary role as an advisor is managing risk. Not maximising returns. My choice of the MF space was simply because i clearly saw the need existed in 2008. 1/10
#ManagingRisk
#ContrarianInvesting
MF's offered ease of scalability, management & ample liquidity. We could buy as much quantity at same valuation. MF's wide product choice outside of diversified & largecap funds favoured advisory alpha generation. 2/10 #ContrarianInvesting
#ManagingRisk
@ithoughtadviser
Generally, advisors let fund managers decide portfolio composition and risk management. @ithoughtadviser believed it was our responsibility to play a constant role. So, we brought fund research, client risk profiling, market opportunity & #ManagingRisk closer in our work. 3/10

You have heard about our #AI Code and #global summit, but take a look at some of our other recommendations in the #LordsAIreport #justkeepreading: ow.ly/DnC930jyxZT
We had a lot to say about #data and #AI, and who should have access to it.
We also thought carefully about #diversity and #representation in #artificialintelligence and how we should address #bias and #prejudice

The #AI task force for Economic Transformation in #India (set up by the Government’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry) released its report last month. Some background (B) and key takeaways (T). 1/n
B1. The vision guiding this report is “AI as a socio economic problem solver at large scale rather than only a booster of economic growth”. 2/n
B2. It seeks to address the role of the Government in the field, answer how #AI can improve quality of life, and identify sectors for AI growth. 3/n

(1) If you ask each of your peers to define the term "customer need" you will get just as many completely different responses. If you ask them how to put one to paper, the same #jtbd
(2) If you ask customers what their needs are, you'll get even an array of responses, mainly related to your product, and expressed in many different ways...anxieties, delighters, requirements, features, wants, delighters, must haves, specifications...and so on. #jtbd
(3) It should be clear that in order to truly predict what will be successful in a market, we need to understand that people have jobs to get done. And if we can determine how they measure the value of new offerings, we should be able to predict success. Right? #jtbd

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.
