Welcome to Future Human, where we explore the human potential of technology. Much of the technology we take for granted was conceived over decades, forged by an ongoing collaboration between researchers, artists and the keenest engineering minds in the world. As the science fiction of days past becomes everyday reality, where will the next great ideas come from? Listen in as today’s most adventurous and creative thinkers unleash their ideas for a more connected, productive and humane world.

The Vendee Globe – an around-the-world, solo sailing competition – is considered one of the most grueling sporting events of the modern age. As such, it presents an intriguing opportunity to solve one of the most vexing challenges facing technological innovation: the “remote problem.” AI, advanced sensing and automation are becoming commonplace in industrial environments, leading to huge boosts in productivity and efficiency. But moving those complex systems off of the factory floor and onto a solitary boat sailing in the middle of the ocean creates an entirely new set of challenges. Listen in as champion racer Alex Thomson and Marcus Weldon, President of Nokia Bell Labs and Corporate CTO of Nokia, discuss the potential of their unique collaboration.
