Peter and Dan discuss continuous education as critical in the 21st century to take advantage of new opportunities and develop new capabilities. With technology changing every month, week and even day, your agility as an entrepreneur depends on your ability to learn new skills and instantly apply this knowledge.
In this episode:
- Peter talks about the fundamentally broken global education system and his belief that exponential technology will completely transform how we learn in the next decade. He gives an example of AI-driven education curating an AR experience, in which digital avatars have conversations with you to create the most impactful experience you’d never be able to have from reading a book.
- Dan and Peter agree the old system was not a system of inspiration or creativity, but a system of doing what you’re told. The new system will be customized education, where AI is helping people learn in the best ways for them.
- Peter talks about the gamification of learning and gives an example of an unemployed workforce playing games all day and learning. Once they master a certain level, an employer can offer then a job or a higher paying position.
