In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Peter Diamandis is here talking with me about the speed of the future—and how it’s here and now.
Peter’s mission is to elevate humanity to the next level. His primary focus is on accelerating breakthroughs in products, companies, and industries to solve some of the world's greatest challenges. In the past several years, Peter has had several breakthrough technologies in different sectors including 3D Printing, Artificial Intelligence, computation, drones, materials science, health, energy, the future of work, and robotics.
“What we can do, what the average person can do these days is extraordinary and we don't think about it,” Peter says. “It's amazing how powerful we are, how much access to capital we have and computational power and knowledge and what we can do with that if it's focused.”
His newest book, co-authored with Steven Kotler, The Future is Faster Than You Think: How Converging Technologies Are Transforming Business, Industries, and Our Lives, is a follow-up to his best-selling books Abundance and BOLD.
Peter is known as the world's best expert in incentivized innovation and has worked in several Fortune 100 companies, government agencies, and captained various industry in the past 15 years. He’s the founder and executive chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions.
He has won multiple awards including the 2010 Economist "No Boundaries" award for "metainnovation”—steering innovation in the way people innovate.
