Peggy chats with author, lecturer, and investor Timothy Chou, about his book Precision Construction: Principles, Practices and Solutions for the Internet of Things in Construction. He says he wrote the book so that he can understand it. Also, he suggests most of the technology that has been built up until now has been for the Internet of People, but that there are five key reasons why things are not people. He also points to examples of IoT projects.
2 AI Augments
Peggy and Joshua Gans, professor of strategic management, University of Toronto, discuss how AI (artificial intelligence) is becoming better about predicting things and how it can augment or improve humans. He says a big benefit of AI is being able to crack the translation of languages. He suggests looking for places to slide in AI to reduce uncertainty. In order to get young minds to become innovators, he is heavily involved with startups in its AI and machine learning program—and they are innovating in health, smart cities, chemical processes, and more.

Peggy Smedley says revenue for AR (augmented reality) devices and content will be $36.4 billion by 2023. But is it all hype? She dives into different use cases of AR in healthcare, transportation, and more. For example, during operation, a surgeon can see what is in front of him or her—and the key data about the patient. She asks listeners to consider AR in their business, and if not, why?
