  1. Moonshot Thinking to Unleash Innovation - Public lectures and events

    Speaker(s): Dr Pablo Rodriguez

    Chair: Professor Milan Vojnovic

    Recorded on 10 January 2018 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

    Innovation in most large companies these days is fairly incremental. There is nothing inherently wrong in this, as much of our progress as a society has resulted from such innovation. Over recent years, however, we are seeing a radical departure from incremental innovation. Instead, we look at organisations who intentionally set extremely ambitious innovation objectives, where incremental innovation cannot get the job done. The focus of this talk is to discuss the ways in which organisations mobilise resources to go after bold objectives which can move the needle: Moonshots. These are not incremental innovation activities, but instead multi-year missions that mobilise extensive scientific and technological resources to expand the horizons for both organizations and societies, and transform both in the process. From the original Apollo mission, the original IBM 360 mainframe computer, NASA, DARPA, Google X, or Telefonica´s new spinoff company — Alpha, more and more organizations are trying to inductively develop a coherent approach to creating and executing organisational moonshots. A major driving force to tackle Moonshots is the incredible advances in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. It is widely believed that global human progress depends on the collection and analysis of data to fuel our increasingly digital world. There is tangible benefit including economic opportunity to be gained. But arguably most important, is data as a force for global and impactful social good and, here, the possibilities are endless. Pablo Rodriguez (@pabloryr) is the CEO of Alpha. Prior to Alpha, Pablo led Telefonica´s corporate research lab and incubator. He has worked in several Silicon Valley startups and corporations including Inktomi, Microsoft Research and Bell-Labs. His current interests are privacy and personal data, re-thinking the Internet ecosystem and network economics. He has co-founded the Data Transparency Lab, an NGO to drive data privacy and transparency. He is on the advisory board of Akamai, EPFL, and IMDEA Networks. He has worked with chef Ferran Adria (El Bulli) on computational gastronomy and with F.C. Barcelona applying data science to soccer. He received his Ph.D. from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. He is an IEEE Fellow and an ACM Fellow. Milan Vojnovic is Professor of Data Science with the Department of Statistics and the MSc in Data Science Programme Director. SEDS (@SEDS_LSE) is an interdisciplinary research unit established to foster the study of data science and new forms of data with a focus on its social, economic, and political aspects. SEDS aims to host, facilitate, and promote research in social and economic data science.

    SEDS is a collaboration between the Departments of Statistics, Methodology and Mathematics.

  3. Hazel Brugger

    Sie sei „die böseste Frau der Schweiz“, schreibt die Presse. Was vermutlich besagen soll, dass es nicht nur lustig ist, wenn Hazel Brugger auf Comedy-Bühnen steht und über Säuglinge in Brotgröße, den Zusammenhang verwesender Schnittblumen und Beziehungen sowie den Tod spricht. „Hazel Brugger passiert“ heißt ihr aktuelles Programm. Könnte aber auch das allgemeine Motto der Schweizerin sein, die TV-Zuschauer als Außenreporterin der „Heute Show“ kennen. Und die auch sonst gerade so ziemlich alle Kabarett- und Comedy-Preise abräumt, die es im deutschsprachigen Raum gibt. Sei einiger Zeit lebt Hazel Brugger in Köln. Ein Spaziergang am Rhein inklusive späterem Verfransen in der Dunkelheit sowie einem Gespräch über Liza Simpson, Saxofonunterricht, Hühnerhals-Einkauf-Defizite, Frauen in der Comedy, Melancholie, Hirnamputation und den Tod.

  10. Show 624: Ted Leo & Opinions on Shamir

    interviewTed Leo

    This week, Jim and Greg are joined by singer-songwriter Ted Leo in front of an audience at the Goose Island Tap Room in Chicago. Leo gained fame in the early attention with his tuneful yet political approach to punk rock with his band the Pharmacists. But it’s been seven years since Leo’s last album. In that time, he formed a successful collaboration with Aimee Mann as The Both (who were Sound Opinions guests in 2014). But his family also suffered emotional and financial crises, which inform his ambitious new album, The Hanged Man.

    The album’s expansive sound is the product of being able to tinker alone in his new home studio in Rhode Island. No longer on a label, Leo crowdfunded the album through Kickstarter and released it himself. Ted Leo discusses how his personal turmoil affected his music and how his fanbase gave him a lift. He also gives an intimate solo performance of songs from The Hanged Man.
