5 Exciting Technologies That Need Your Execution Help

first_imgThe Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is a fancy name for the increasing array of sensors embedded in our commonly used appliances and electronic devices, vehicles, homes, offices, and public places. These sensors talk to each other, and to us, via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or our smartphones, to help us manage our environment and live a richer life. 5 Exciting Technologies That Need Your Execution HelpMay 17, 2019 by Martin Zwilling 250SHARESFacebookTwitterLinkedin What are the higher-level risks and rewards? Beyond the normal risks of starting a new business, many new technologies have the potential for moral and environmental risks. What if you mess up and create monsters or destroy the environment? Look at the potential side effects and long-term consequences of an idea, before making a legacy commitment to that business.For me, and for most technologists in business, the future is both very exciting and a bit hair-raising. I certainly see no shortage of ideas and opportunities, but I recommend that every entrepreneur, and every consumer, take a hard look at the broader implications of each new technology. There is plenty of room for good, so select wisely and execute well. The quality of all our lives depends on it.Reprinted by permission.PREVIOUS POSTNEXT POST Merging of man and machine (robotics and biology). Amazing progress is being made in underlying hardware and software, and costs have plummeted. Siri and her compatriots will soon be able to converse with you in more physical and emotional ways. The mental distinction between humans and machines will become almost imperceptible.There are many more, but these are ones high on my priority list for entrepreneurs looking for a place to start. Yet with these, as with any other opportunity, there are many risks and implications, pointed out by Wadhwa in his book, for every entrepreneur to consider with each idea. He and I suggest that you always ask yourself the following three questions before starting:Does your idea have the potential to benefit everyone equally? Many technology advances have negative implications for certain industries and segments of society. Your market may be limited to the top one percent of income owners or may imply values that are unacceptable to the mass market. Consider the societal big picture before jumping in. As a business advisor and technologist, I often think about the large array of opportunities for entrepreneurs as technology seems to be evolving faster and faster. Yet I still too often hear the question, “Can you give me a really sure-fire idea for starting my own business?” My standard answer is that ideas are a dime a dozen, and success is all about smart execution, not ideas.Yet from time to time, I try to step back and look for some of the most promising and exciting technologies that I see coming down the pike. In that context, I recommend the classic book, “Driver in the Driverless Car,” by Vivek Wadhwa with Alex Salkever, which categorizes many of the leading ones that everyone, both entrepreneurs and consumers, should be thinking about:Self-driving cars, trucks, drones, and planes. The opportunities to capitalize on these vehicles are huge, ranging from control software, hardware design, support facilities, to entirely new applications. The challenge, according to a survey from a couple of years ago, is that just one in five people today would entrust their life to a driverless vehicle. Execution won’t be easy. Filed Under: Advice, AI, HealthTech, IoT, Management, Resources, Strategic, Transportation, UrbanTech Artificial intelligence (machine learning). According to experts, computers with more power than the human brain are mere seven to fourteen years away. Artificial intelligence is still young but already embedded in our everyday lives, through decision support, navigation routing, and much more. Future opportunities for entrepreneurs are endless. Personalized genomics and healthcare. Advances in the understanding of the genome of an individual is leading to personalized medicine, also termed precision medicine. The next step is manipulation of these genomes to fix and even prevent many disorders, totally change the efficacy of healthcare, and extend and improve your life. Does it promote autonomy or dependence? Customers don’t want new technologies to be like recreational drugs that they become dependent on. We all want greater autonomy – the freedom to live our lives the way we wish to and to fulfill our potentials. Entrepreneurs need to focus on ideas that lead to customer autonomy, not dependence.last_img read more

The wireless industry has finally delivered on years of promises and hype and is finally offering the first super-fast 5G networks. Sort of.Verizon in April became the first U.S. carrier to offer 5G service via a phone, though the phone in question was a Motorola model with an ugly 5G add-on pack. Reviewers measured download speeds as high as 600 megabits per second, 10 to 20 times faster than on a typical 4G LTE network. And Samsung’s much slicker (and lighter) Galaxy S10 5G model is coming out any day now.But the problem for Verizon’s 5G service, and a similar offering also due soon from AT&T, is limited coverage. Very limited coverage. Verizon started in Minneapolis and Chicago but only in a few neighborhoods in each city. And because Verizon and AT&T are using high wavelength bands for 5G, the signals don’t travel as far as current day cellular networks.PC Magazine analyst Sascha Segan walked around the one tiny part of Chicago where Verizon turned on 5G service and found speeds plummeted when he got more than 300 feet away from a cell site–or when he just walked around the corner of a stone building. Verizon says it is planning additional technological fixes that will extend the range. And it’s connecting 30 or more cities this year, at least in some neighborhoods. AT&T says it’s built out 5G for 19 cities.Nationwide coverage is a year or more away. Rivals Sprint and T-Mobile may get better coverage with their 5G services, coming later this year, that don’t rely on the high airwaves bands, but probably won’t attain the same speeds, either. So for most consumers hungry for super-fast mobile downloads, it’s still hurry up and wait.This article originally appeared in the June 2019 issue of Fortune.You May Like by Ultimate Software A Work Culture Built for All Generationslast_img read more

Partitioning Your Work and Personal Finances

first_imgThere are a lot of incentives to keep your personal and business finances separated. If your business is incorporated, by mixing your personal and business finances, you’re opening yourself up to legal liabilities. It’s easy to just combine your personal and business banking; it’s akin to taking the road of least resistance. Sadly, once you travel along this path for long enough, you will see that a lot of issues arise in the future. The longer you wait to insulate your business’s cash flow from your personal life, the more difficult it becomes to do. Here are some ideas to make the change easier:At the outset, it’s important to create a well-defined wall. There can be no gaps or holes here, as you will make yourself susceptible to the same issues once again.Remember that this changeover is a gradual process. Approach it in steps and you won’t become overwhelmed.To really define the separation, consider using two different banks.You’ll have a lot to do when you begin separating. But if you stick with it, you’ll see benefits in no time.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Lessons for Scaling Your Business from Uber

first_imgIn the second post in our two-part interview with Uber’s Ryan Graves (read Part I here) the VP of Operations talks about the biggest hurdles the venture-backed on-demand car service has overcome during its path to growth.biggest hurdles to scaling a businessWhen Ryan Graves helped found what was then called UberCab in 2010, he wasn’t exactly thinking about scaling a business. As the San Francisco-based startup’s CEO, Graves simply wanted to get the company off the ground and operational.In two short years, however, that mindset has changed. Last December, the on-demand car service closed a $39 million Series B round of financing, led by a who’s who of investors, including Menlo Ventures, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, and Goldman Sachs. Today, Uber has a presence in — or will soon be launching in — 20 cities and four different countries, with big plans for further widespread expansion.While all of that might make it sound like Uber’s growth has been a smooth, bump-free ride, Graves says that’s not exactly the case. He recently sat down with OpenView to talk about the challenges he has faced scaling a business that hasn’t always been warmly received in new markets, and what he has enjoyed the most about the entire process.“If we hadn’t managed that attention appropriately, it would have been easy to lose focus, and deviated from the path we knew made the most sense for the business.”What has been the most difficult part about scaling a business like Uber?I think we’ve dealt with some pretty unique regulatory issues in a couple of the domestic markets we’ve expanded into. Most technology companies don’t have to worry about that kind of thing until they begin expanding internationally.So for us to be successful in new markets, we’ve had to plan for those issues, navigate them, understand the market dynamics, and find ways to maneuver our strategy to adapt to those environments. It wasn’t always easy, but at the same time it forced us to think a little bit more strategically about our expansion, which has been good for the company.The other challenge for us was hype management. I know that’s a very fortunate problem to have, but it did present some unique challenges, particularly when it came to financing. We had more press than we knew what to do with and we had a lot of different investors knocking on our door.If we hadn’t managed that attention appropriately, it would have been easy to lose focus, and deviated from the path we knew made the most sense for the business.Uber’s now gone through three rounds of financing. What have you learned from those experiences?I think the terms of the deal are probably the most important thing to consider. Most of the value that venture capitalists bring to the table is their money, so you need to make sure that the terms you’re offered align with your short- and long-term goals.From there, you should definitely look at the auxiliary value that specific VC firms can offer, because that can be the differentiator between two offers with similar terms.I think most of that auxiliary value stems from the people who you’ll be partnering with. Are they positive? Do they share the same goals for the business that you do? Are they hands-on or hands-off?All of those factors matter and they can definitely impact the relationship you have with your investors. If that relationship isn’t a good one then scaling a business will definitely be more difficult.When scaling a business, many founders can struggle with recruiting and developing their teams. How has Uber managed to avoid that roadblock so far?Recruiting is the most challenging thing we face in our effort to scale Uber. Because the process of growth is such a time-sensitive process, you can’t afford to recruit the wrong types of people. If you do, they’ll ultimately drag you and your business down with them.As for more explicit advice, there are two things I think companies need to keep in mind. First, be patient when you’re recruiting team members. If you hold out an extra week or month for the right person — rather than hiring the first candidate you interview just to fill a seat — that patience will pay off. Don’t lower your quality bar.Second, act swiftly with team members who aren’t working out. I know that goes against my previous point about patience, but I think the adage “hire slow, fire fast” absolutely applies.Once you’ve assembled a team, how do you develop a culture that keeps everyone focused, motivated, and excited to work for the company?That’s an interesting question. I think culture is critical, but I also think that focusing on it too much can make you seem insincere.If you’re saying to your team, “Hey guys, this is our culture and this is what we need to care about,” I don’t think it’s going to resonate. That’s kind of lame. I’ve made this mistake.Culture isn’t something that you force feed your team. It’s more of a byproduct of who you are collectively, what you stand for, and what you value most. If you focus on people individually — the work that they do and the way in which they’re rewarded — I think that will have a far greater impact on your business, and culture will take care of itself.In short, your culture should be the sum of everything you do, not some slogan you put on a banner and hang in your office.Read Part I of our interview with Ryan here.

All the Important Stuff From Apples WWDC Keynote

first_img Learn from renowned serial entrepreneur David Meltzer how to find your frequency in order to stand out from your competitors and build a brand that is authentic, lasting and impactful. All the Important Stuff From Apple’s WWDC Keynote Add to Queue Apple Amrita Khalid –shares Next Article Image credit: Brittany Hosea-Small | Getty Images via engadget Fireside Chat | July 25: Three Surprising Ways to Build Your Brand 7 min read June 4, 2019 This story originally appeared on Engadget Apple unveiled a slew of new features and updates at this year’s WWDC that will impact every corner of its ecosystem. In addition to iOS 13, macOS Catalina and watchOS 6, Apple also unveiled the new iPadOS for, you guessed it, the iPad. Users can expect a long-awaited dark mode in iOS, a more natural-sounding Siri, an Apple Watch that can stream audio and an array of new editing features for Photos. Software changes weren’t the only announcements at this year’s WWDC, though. As expected, we’re also getting a new Mac Pro this fall, complete with a new 6K Retina display with a revolving stand. Consumer demands for more security were also addressed with much-needed privacy updates, including a new “Sign-in with Apple” feature for third-party apps.If there’s any running theme in this year’s WWDC, it seemed to be better integration across all of Apple’s platforms. Changes seemed aimed at making all Apple devices — from the iPhone to the iPad to the Mac to the Watch — work better independently, as well as better with each other.Here’s a rundown of all the major announcements from this year’s WWDC:Apple watchOS 6The Apple Watch will get its own app store. The latest update to watchOS will allow it to run more independently from iPhone. Users can download apps right on their wrist.A new wave of first-party apps for Apple Watch include Audiobooks, Voice Memos, and a calculator.A new streaming audio API lets users broadcast audio from third-party apps through their Watch.You can pick from a wide array of new faces for your Apple Watch.More advanced health and fitness tracking features are coming to Apple Watch, including an improved menstrual cycle tracking feature for Health. A loudness monitor can gives users an assessment of the noise levels of their current environment.A new taptic feedback and chime can alert users every hour on the hour.tvOSThe latest version of Apple’s TV software will support both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers.Karaoke just got a lot easier. Music you play on Apple TV will include an option to view lyrics.You can also expect multi-user support through the latest tvOS, including personalized recommendations and watchlists for everyone in your household.Apple unveiled the first trailer for the Apple TV+ series For All Mankind, directed by Seth Gordon.iOS 13Perhaps the most significant release unveiled today was that of iOS 13, the iPhone’s latest operating system.You can expect iOS 13 to be faster and more efficient, with “top to bottom” performance improvements. Apps will launch twice as fast and take up half the amount of space; updates to apps will be 60 percent smaller. Unlocking through FaceID will be 30 percent faster.For night owls and insomniacs, Apple rolled out a system-wide dark mode.Apple’s built-in apps got an overhaul, including Maps, Reminders, Notes, Mail, and more.A new and improved Maps app will be unveiled by the end of 2019 that will include more detailed maps, 3]D satellite imagery and enhanced privacy protections for location sharing.Another score for the security-conscious. A new “Sign In With Apple” feature promises to give users a quick way to sign-in to third-party apps without the added tracking baggage of using Facebook or Google. You can authenticate your log-ins with Face ID or Touch ID. Apple will even generate a random email address to be used on services if you don’t want to use your real one.Emojis are about to get a lot more personal. Apple’s Memoji will come with a seemingly endless array of personalization features, including makeup, jewellery, accessories, and more. You can use Memoji as iMessage stickers, as well as third-party messaging apps like WeChat.Photos will get a host of new editing and lighting options, including portrait lighting.Browsing your photos will get a lot easier. Apple will use machine learning to eliminate the clutter; sorting duplicates and organizing photos into time-specific categories.HomeKitApple wants to bring privacy to security camera footage. The company unveiled two new products; Apple HomeKit Secure Video and HomeKit for Routers that aim to protect the privacy of home surveillance systems.HomeKit for Secure Video will encrypt video feed and store it on iCloud. HomeKit for Routers will create a virtual firewall between your network and any devices on that network.SiriA new and improved Siri will be better-integrated with CarPlay, AirPods, and the HomePod speaker.HomePod can now be used by multiple users, and can even distinguish between the voices of different members of your household.With the redesigned CarPlay, Siri can give you on-screen app suggestions as you drive.If you’re wearing AirPods, Siri will be able to read back your messages and let you reply automatically.Siri Shortcuts, will automatically suggest Siri shortcuts for users based on their behavior and give users suggestions on multi-step shortcuts they can try.Thanks to the power of neural TTS, Siri will sound more like a human.iPad OSThe iPad is getting its own OS.The home screen is more useful: it can display more apps to launch, and you can pin widgets to it so you can see them whenever you unlock your iPad.The “slide-over” feature allows you to swipe between multiple apps on an iPad, much like you do on an iPhone.Split view is more powerful. You can open the same app across split view, so you can work on two documents in the same app side-by-side. You can also have multiple instances of the same app open, like having Notes in split view open with both Safari and Mail.Safari is now a “desktop class” browser that won’t default to showing mobile views of websites. Apple also added 30 more keyboard shortcuts to make it faster to navigate.Mac ProThe wait is over for the new Mac Pro. We broke down the specs for the 2019 Mac Pro here.The base model of the Mac Pro will include an eight-core Intel Xeon CPU, 32GB of memory, a 256GB SSD and the Radeon Pro 580X graphics card.Video editors will no doubt appreciate the inclusion of Afterburner, a hardware accelerator card that enables the Mac Pro to play 12 streams of 4K video.The base Pro will start at $5,999 and be released this fall.A new 32-inch, 6K Retina display for Mac Pro will also be available this fall and costs $4,999.Apple also unveiled a new, removable display stand, which can rotate, adjust for height, or tilt. The stand starts at a whopping $999, and will also be released this fall.macOS CatalinaThe latest version of macOS is called Catalina.As we’ve learned, iTunes will soon be no more. Instead, your entertainment will be split into three apps; Music, TV, and Podcasts. Music will work with your local media library as well as Apple Music.Sidecar allows you to use your iPad as a second display for your Mac. You can even use the iPad and Apple Pencil as a drawing canvas for Mac apps.The TV app includes support for 4K video.Finding lost Apple devices will get a lot easier. A new “Find My” app will help you locate any Apple devices using a secure Bluetooth signal. Thieves will have even less incentive to steal your Mac. A new activation lock with T2 security chip will require user credentials to install any new programs.Project Catalyst will allow developers to easily create apps that work across Mac, iPad, and iPhone. Twitter is releasing a new desktop appthrough this initiative.A greatly expanded Voice Control feature is designed to let people navigate the Mac using only their voice. We got a glimpse of the new Mac Pro, iOS 13 and a wave of new features to better integrate Apple devices. Enroll Now for $5last_img read more

Halo Top begins first nationwide television campaign in the US

To their surprise, they’re greeted by Halo Top’s quick-witted ice cream man, who imparts some cynical life lessons and explains why adults deserve Halo Top more than they do.In a statement, Halo Top said: “From mortgages, to awkward online dating, to accidentally hitting ‘reply all’ on a work email, Halo Top understands that adulting can be complicated, but ice cream shouldn’t be.”Directed by Tim Godsall and produced by Anonymous Content, the campaign also features reality television personality Nick Viall for a cameo in the advert titled ‘Love’.center_img Halo Top begins first nationwide television campaign in the USPosted By: Jules Scullyon: March 11, 2019In: Dairy, Industries, MarketingPrintEmaillast_img read more
