The f(x) = e^x | Cybersecurity and images from brainwaves

Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.

You can visit The Digital Speaker to book me as a keynote speaker for your next event or to hire me as a future tech coach for your CEO. I have also published my trend predictions for 2022.

How Cybersecurity is Changing Technology Today

My latest article:

Tech is expanding, and so are the number of threats and vulnerabilities. The number of potential risks is rising, creating a security gap between the expectations of users and technology suppliers. In short, cybersecurity is changing how things are done today more than ever before.

Therefore, organisations must obtain the ability to identify and combat cyber threats, whether using AI or other means. Due to the digitalisation of society, businesses face increasing risk from external cyber-attacks.

With the rise of the internet of things, the metaverse and quantum computing, cyber security will become increasingly important, and cyber security can no longer be ignored by any company.


Three Useful Nuggets of Information

My weekly tips from around the web to get you thinking.

1. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this tech will leave you speechless.

Currently, scientists are developing technology that converts brain waves into photographic images. Researchers at Radboud University in the Netherlands recently used a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner to monitor brain activity while volunteers viewed images of faces. The system was able to reconstruct the images that volunteers saw almost identically. (PetaPixel)

2. How Blockchain Technology is (Finally) Radically Changing the Hotel Industry.

As blockchain technology grows, the hospitality industry — notably restaurants—could benefit from many new opportunities. From supply chain transparency to NFTs that could change how tables are booked, the fusion of blockchain technology and physical products or services has many unexplored possibilities for the hospitality industry.

3. Melbourne's biggest AR art trail is out of this world.

Art and technology have combined to create Melbourne’s largest, free augmented reality (AR) art trail called AR.Trail. It includes works by world-class artists adorning the city's arts precinct. Art fans can browse a library of virtual artworks on their smartphones, from small sculptures and architectural-sized moving images. (Creative Victoria)
