“Sadin on Digital” episodes explore the fast-changing and high-stakes world of digital business. Wayne Sadin and I focus in particular on what CEOs and boards must do to lead their companies successfully into the Digital Age. Today, we get Wayne’s POV on what, why and how certain changes are sweeping across major industries like healthcare and manufacturing—and which are here to stay.
In this episode: Wayne and I discuss how “horizontal tube” subways and “vertical tube” elevators will fall from favor. It’s a lot easier and, for some, less stressful to take a bus, a private car or even a bicycle.
Wayne predicts that people are going to move away from big cities like New York, San Francisco, Paris, London – and move into the suburbs and exurbs. Most of Wayne’s clients have worked from the home environment pretty seamlessly; business as usual. A lot of executives who said, “Never, I’m not going to put up with it,” are now realizing it may not be so bad.
Wayne and I also explore how telemedicine is revolutionizing the industry—with much more to come. In the near future, you’ll sit in front of a screen talking to a doctor who is monitoring your smartwatch, smart ring, arm sensor, implanted insulin device – and all that telemetry and edge computing and IoT is now feeding back to a sensor suite.
Also in this episode:
- Why are we running out of toilet paper?
- We have more sensors, IoT, edge computing, and robotics than ever before
- Why a doctor in Texas can’t treat a patient in Oklahoma
- People dying of COVID-19 also have heart problems, obesity, smoking, and other comorbidities
