20. Robots Part Three: Soul Purpose

4/1/2021
In the final installment of the three-part series on Robots, Futuri CEO Daniel Anstandig wonders if robots can, or ever will, have a soul. As robotics continues to advance, this is a tricky question that has caused science and spirituality to converge in unprecedented ways. What exactly is a soul? Where does it reside in our bodies? And if we don’t know, how can we bestow it onto something we create? Perhaps putting our own souls into robots is the closest we’ll get: Anti-aging is a huge...

19. Robots Part Two: Bots, Drones, Wearables & The Autonomous Future

3/26/2021
On the second part of this three-part series on Robots, Futuri CEO Daniel Anstandig looks at the bodies artificial intelligence are inhabiting. While most of our sci-fi assumes that robots will be built to look human, in real life, they’re anything but. The most ubiquitous robots are service bots built for e-commerce – like the over 200,000 robots Amazon has working in their warehouses – or cleaning, like Roombas. No one would say they look anything like people, but they get the job done; so...

3/24/2021
In this three-part series, Futuri CEO Daniel Anstandig dives deep into robots. The more innovative we get with robotics, the more we’re faced with existential questions.

For the first part, Daniel looks at the mind in the machine. So far, artificial intelligence operates a lot like a better brain, capable of problem-solving, spotting patterns, and...

1/18/2021
The first-ever virtual CES is in the books, and while this year felt more about evolutions of existing technologies and products than launching major, industry-changing new ones, there's still a lot broadcast media can take away from the event.

10. Do Less, Get More Done: The Productivity Paradox

1/4/2021
Have you made a resolution to be more productive in the new year? Productivity is important, of course — we all want to reach our goals in a reasonable amount of time, after all! But as Daniel Anstandig points out in this episode of Innovation19, we often judge our productivity by the amount of tasks we complete in a day, regardless of the importance of those tasks. It can lead us to create ridiculously long to-do lists we have no hope of completing in a single day, leaving us feeling like a...

9. Advancements in Commuting: Personal Planes, Hyperloop Trains, and Driverless Automobiles

12/29/2020
So many of us have been working from home since the beginning of the pandemic that it’s hard to imagine commuting to an office again. Besides saving us an average of $13,000 a year on transportation costs, research has shown that workers get more accomplished in a shorter period of time when we work from home. On the other hand, when employees are together in person, it fosters a greater sense of community and a stronger company culture than constant Zoom meetings ever could, which has an...

Daniel Anstandig breaks down the state of broadcast ad sales in 2021 on this episode of Innovation19. He’s joined by Tracy Gilliam, the veteran broadcast executive who founded Futuri’s TopLine sales system because she knew that “every station has a story.” Each ad client is trying to reach a specific type of consumer, and while radio and television stations could rely on gross audience numbers to sell their reach in the past, it’s a little more complicated now.

5. Right On Target: Getting The Best Out Of Social Media

12/7/2020
Targeted ads and media content are convenient for users and efficient for businesses, but films like Netflix’s The Social Dilemma have raised serious questions about what they're doing to us culturally. The film argues that targeting contributes to an epidemic of division in our society, allowing everyone to live in an echo chamber of their own opinions, stifling empathy and growth. But in this episode, Daniel explains that there are plenty of benefits to targeted content; if we’re more...

11/13/2020
Thanks to social media, it’s nearly impossible to be the first news outlet to break a big story these days; when celebrities like Patton Oswalt can tweet about an earthquake while it’s happening, or a local can upload a video of a tsunami, how can a more traditional newsroom keep up? In this episode, Daniel explains why news media outlets should be turning to AI systems, like Futuri’s TopicPulse, to analyze trends and predict what stories will resonate most with which demographics.
