    TBL03: Gianluca Miscione: (Crypto)Currencies as Infrastructures

    08/05/2019 Duração: 42min

    Gianluca Miscione is something of a philosopher of currencies. Working in the The Centre for Innovation, Technology & Organisation at University College Dublin, his work considers how currencies are like infrastructures — like roads. In this in-depth interview, we cover topics around the nature of data, of currencies and where control does sit and should sit in the future. He is involved with http://codingvalue.org/, a global research hub based in the College of Business, UCD which researches blockchain globally. -- This is from The Baseline Podcast, hosted by Dan Frost (@danfrost) — A consulting CTO to startups and SMEs with work in R&D in edtech.

    TBL02: Superforecasting with Nick Hare

    04/03/2019 Duração: 58min

    Superforecasting is the ability to think about the future with unusual accuracy by analysing the problem and counteracting our innate biases. In this interview, I talk to Nick Hare who is a superforecaster. Nick explains how the future can be understood by breaking it down into a series of quantifiable "knows". We also dig into his background in government intelligence and his work teaching other firms to do this, we discuss how people normally predict and how the work of The Good Judgement project is training more people to predict accurately.
