Anders Indset believes technology is not limited to its answers and possibilities, but to the human capacity to ask questions and think about possible outcomes. In his work, he refers to this as “the art of being wrong” – or simply practical philosophy. Recently, Anders has shared reflections on the social and business implications of exponential technologies as artificial intelligence with ChatGPT/OpenAI and Quantum Technology now becomes mainstream.
Although Anders foundation is rooted in philosophy and practical implication of initiated projects he has spoken at many conferences where he has been recognized as a leading futurist.
With the advent of Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Quantum technologies, the topics of Leadership and Technology and their relation to Philosophy becomes even more relevant.
Anders Indset brings practical background from a decade as a leadership and strategy consultant to fortune 500 companies. He has invested in and founded several companies and is the founder of the investment and consulting firm Njordis and also the cofounder of the business school Global Institute of Leadership & Technology (GILT), where he chairs the practical philosophy faculty.
He is the author of three bestsellers, ‘The Quantum Economy,’ ‘Infected Thinking,’ and ‘Wild Knowledge.’ His books have been translated into more than ten languages.
Through his involvement and investment in one of the world’s leading quantum technology companies, Terra Quantum, and as co-initiator of the Global Blockchain Initiative, Anders has a deep understanding of the implications of technological developments.
He has published papers on Singularity and on the Simulation Hypothesis with reflections on artificial intelligence and exponential technologies. In his recent publications, ‘The Final Narcissistic Injury’ and “Are we living in a (Quantum) Simulation?” he takes a look at the foundations of technological progress for humanity.
