Tiisetso Maloma public lecture at Wits Business School on 13 August 2019: How to See Into the Future – Innovation, Human Inclinations & the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Hello there.

Tiisetso Maloma will host a public lecture at Wits Business School titled ‘How to See Into the Future – Innovation, Human Inclinations and the Fourth Industrial Revolution,’ on the 13th of August 2019.

RSVP here https://buff.ly/2JCp12i

The lecture will examine the patterns that innovation follows, and how to forecast it and participate in it.  It further goes into how novel products and novel skills form.

The lecture is based on a series of essays Tiisetso Maloma has written on innovation, industrial revolutions and The Human Greed Pyramid (which he devised). The Human Greed Pyramid is an illustration of how innovations interrelate with humans’ consumption patterns and natural inclinations, the ecology, culture and cognition; and how to plot innovation that works on humans.

Hope to see you there!

A Timeline Of Industrial Revolutions Versus South Africa | DID YOU KNOW: The 4th Industrial Revolution Is The First Industrial Revolution South Africa Is Experiencing As A Free And Democratic Country

The Fourth Industrial Revolution – also known as Industry 4.0 or 4IR – is the first Industrial Revolution that South Africa is experiencing as a free and democratic country.

It does not however mean that other economical revolutions did not happen in South Africa and the rest of Africa in the past. I will get to this later.

N.B.

  • Because the demarcation of the summed up area that now is South Africa was colonised in stages, starting with the Cape by the Dutch and later took over by the British, I will call it ‘Project Colonise South Africa.’
  • Industrial Revolutions’ dates are estimates – i.e. of when one industrial revolution starts and the other ends, and they serve to capture an era of when significant revolutionary innovations happened in the world. And although different researchers have different dates, they do not vary significantly.

A simple understanding of what is the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Why and how Industrial Revolutions form, and to how to take part in them

It seems everyone is talking about the Fourth Industrial Revolution – Abbreviated 4IR and called Industry 4.0 also.

Do you battle to understand what it is?

Relax, once you understand innovation and evolution in the context I will give below, you will have a high-level interpretation of what is this (the Fourth any coming) Industrial Revolution, why and how it forms, and how to take part in it.

What if there was a framework to explain the success, innovation and effectiveness of almost everything? Be it in music, technology, comedy, medicine, entrepreneurship and other creations?

This is what I’ve indulged in for a long while now.

The Adjacent Possible Theory by Stuart A. Kauffman is great in illustrating how innovation forms and ascends.

I’ve plotted a framework that illustrates how innovation interrelates with human consumption, and how to plot innovation that will work on humans. I call it The Human Greed Pyramid.
