It can be hard to tell the difference between fads and technologies that could spark the next digital revolution. From cutting-edge fields like quantum computing to emerging technologies like augmented reality, there's always something new and exciting hitting the headlines. MJ Petroni will take you on a lively and easy to understand tour of the technology that is turning heads and changing the world landscape.
As a cyborg anthropologist, MJ Petroni studied shows like Star Trek at university, but not (just) for fun. Their field of study addresses the complex relationships between humans and machines, exploring how we shape technology and how it is reshaping us. They help organizations increase their Digital Fluency in preparation for future technologies, attending not just to tools but also the thinking, skills, data, and business models which comprise new value creation.
MJ’s work focuses on raising the lowest common denominator of Digital Fluency for individuals, teams, and entire organizations.
It’s clear that most industries need digital fluency rather than traditional mental models to ensure productivity, efficiency, and collaboration. What’s less clear is how these changes will affect workers and employers, and how emerging technologies like mechanical coworkers, AR/VR, and the metaverse will reshape our jobs in any setting.
According to MJ Petroni, knowing the basics of these technologies, how they can be used, and their future potential is essential for leaders who need to make smart decisions about which technologies to invest in and how they should be applied.
Since founding Causeit, Inc. in 2006, MJ has shifted thinking for hundreds of global enterprises, including NTT, Accenture, Volkswagen, the Gates Foundation, SWIFT and several major financial and media companies, raising Digital Fluency among hundreds of thousands of professionals.
MJ sits on the Accenture Tech Vision Advisory Board and is a faculty member at Singularity University.
In addition, Mj Petroni is one of the creators of The Digital Fluency Guide, a guide provided by Causeit, Inc, for leaders who are open to new ways of thinking and who put the chaotic whirlwind of modern innovation into context.
