AI, Data, Education & Robotics

Kicking off with some of the interviews from the Singularity University Summit, the team chats to David Roberts on what Exponential is all about – and how Ice disrupted the world.


They dig into AI and the world of data with Viviene Ming… she’s power and a ball of passionate inspiration. They also look at education with Sizwe Nxasana, CEO of RMB and is now passionately trying to solve Africa’s education.

This is followed by Sarah Berg Breiter and the world of Robotics (she likes the small ones – with good reason).

How SA Got It Own Singularity Conference

Shane Mann made it happen. We are extremely excited to start our series from Singularity University, which was on 23-24 August. And wow, what an incredible show, where 1,300 South Africans were exposed to the 29 future thinkers from all over the planet.


The world is changing and these are the beautiful minds changing it. We had the privilege to interview most of these amazing people. To kick off the series off we spoke to Shayne Mann, who with his brother Mic Mann brought Singularity University to Africa. What an absolute gentleman and shapeshifter.

In Math We Trust: Bitcoin & Blockchain

The Futurology team bring us interviews from the CX (Customer Experience) Innovation & Tech Fest held in Johannesburg.


Human trust is undergoing its most significant transformation in history. Money is the second most important societal construct after language and is currently undergoing its biggest transformation. Beyond money, this will fundamentally change contracts and creative work, leaving no business untouched… leading some prominent computer scientists to call the blockchain a more significant invention than the internet itself.
