Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I have the absolute pleasure of speaking with Kara Swisher. Kara is the co-founder and editor-at-large of Recode, producer and host of the Recode Decode and Pivot podcasts, and co-executive producer of the Code Conference series. She also has a special series on MSNBC called “Revolution” on the impact of technology on work, society and more, and is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. She is also the author of “aol.com: How Steve Case Beat Bill Gates, Nailed the Netheads and Made Millions in the War for the Web.”
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone wants to hear a no-holds-barred conversation about the state of Silicon Valley, what the next generation of Unicorns might look like and what VCs want, what they need, and what they should be paying attention to.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Kara Swisher talks about the role of AI and automation moving forward and the onus that will be placed on employees to reskill. In this new job market, creativity and problem-solving will be more important than ever before. Kara rounds out this episode with what trust looks like in the new tech economy, the role of regulators moving forward, and the importance of ethical thinking in new technologies in an industry that is facing a crisis of privacy.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Kara Swisher is out having the tough conversations, fighting the good fight every day and staying engaged and aware as technology evolves in our society.
