This is what happens when you crowdsource morality!

#3 | What would happen if we crowd sourced morality? In other words, instead of a bible or a quran or a torah guiding us, we make life and death decisions based solely on the collective wisdom of the public. Let’s take this a bit further, and plug the results of those whims into machines. What would happen then? Or rather, what’s the worst that could happen? Tune in to find out!

Human Cloning: The Answer to Talent Scarcity

THE JIM STROUD PODCAST | Human Cloning: The Answer to Talent Scarcity

#2 | Earlier this year, something extraordinary was being reported in the news.  For the first time in American history, there were more jobs than people out of work. To be specific, in June 2018, there were  6.7 million job openings but only just 6.4 million available workers to fill them; this according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employers have been complaining for years about the inability to find workers with the right training for the positions available. In the meantime, companies are adding other incentives to retain workers and pull new ones in.  As the demand grows, workers have gotten more confident about leaving their current positions for better ones. So, what is HR to do? One solution might be… Human Cloning!

Brain to Brain Communication… Its a thing. 

THE JIM STROUD PODCAST | Brain to Brain Communication… Its a thing.

# 1: Believe it or not, scientists connected 3 human brains together and used that connection to… play Tetris because… why not? This new technology represents a LOT of possibilities, both positive and negative. On the positive side, I can imagine paraplegics using this tech to move prosthetic limbs. On the negative side, I foresee a HUGE problem for the HR department. Tune in to the first episode of my new podcast to see what I mean.
