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.

Recently, I launched my new concept The Digital Speaker and you can now book me as an avatar or hologram. Also, my tech trend prediction for 2021 is out, read it here!


The Digital Speaker series - covering the digital world from inside the digital world - episode 1


My latest concept:

Organizations should not only do digital but should be digital. Since you should practice what you preach, I have become digital myself. As The Digitial Speaker, my digital twin has launched the Tech Journal.

While I may look like a rogue sentient AI that's created its own show, I assure you I am as every bit as human as you are. I am here in digital form to cover the digital world from inside the digital world.

On today's show, we will cover how quantum computing will change the future, but that future may be closer than you think. Cybernetic implants are leaving the pages of science fiction as Musk ramps up Neuralink operations and how scientists take us ever closer to a real-life Skynet, let's talk AI.

Put your feet up, get comfortable, and let us start speaking digital.
