The growth of a technology thought leader : Nick Ayton

Get to know Nick Ayton and some of his leading Quantum AI thoughts… Nick Ayton and the crypto generation: Bitcoin is part of a tech wave that I call all at once, and where the Bitcoin blockchain is one of several technologies that by themselves will have a profound impact: Deep learning, Virtual Reality, Quantum Computing, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and therefore the magnitude of change we can expect will dwarf anything we have seen so far. I have some idea of the impact of these technologies but all at once in a decentralization model is the most interesting and the most scary, for some. Think: elitism, the establishment, the upper class, royalty – these are intertwined through history with politics that set the rules, make laws and decide how they want the people to behave. These constructs are all centralized, like managing a business where hierarchy within a capitalist system allows the resources and wealth to be owned by a handful and dictates the dissemination of power that flows from top to bottom of any organization. That is until you build a decentralized or autonomous (DAO) business where rules, consensus, and decisions are handled differently. Where responsibility and benefits are shared and behavior is set by consensus.

An internationally recognised tech thought leader, Nick works with executives to help them overcome the complex nature of new technologies that include Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence, QuantumAI, Nano Materials, VR and Blockchain, as opportunities and threats for business operating model improvement, customers and the top line growth. Nick Ayton has spent more than 4 decades in tech fields, improving businesses and deploying the newest tech for competitive advantage. He has the knack of making the complex feel familiar and gets to the issue quickly. He gets you thinking and helps you take action, to have the right plans in place for what is to come. Nick Ayton has worked in technology for 35 years with a background in Computer Science, Product Development, Sales and Restructuring. He was involved in 8 tech starts and used to be a corporate citizen holding senior roles in some of the largest IT Services, BPO and Tech companies over a career spanning more than 30 years.

NickAyton about crypto app tokes : I will say this only once… Ignoring Blockchain is dangerous. Any company director that does not take Blockchain seriously, bother to find out about it, or come up with a plan will be viewed as a breach of their responsibilities towards shareholders. They are exposing the business to unnecessary risk and, having been warned, could be held personally accountable. Yes, strong words. CEOs, the Chairman, and their boards do not have sufficient awareness of technology and so very often wrongly diagnose the storm as a passing shower. They underestimate the degree of change and a ‘follow the herd’ mentality that many industries suffer from.
