Banking the unbanked Internet of Things IoT

Create the Economy of Things By Banking The Unbanked IoT

Bank­ing the Unbanked always refers to human beings and their enable­ment to par­tic­i­pate in the glob­al finan­cial sys­tem by pro­vid­ing them with bank accounts. In this post, I sug­gest cre­at­ing the Econ­o­my of Things by bank­ing the unbanked IoT — i.e. machines, devices, and tools with­in the Inter­net of Things IoT. Glob­al­iza­tion has made our world a small­er place: through the inter­net, we know every­thing that hap­pens some­where with­in min­utes, through air

RAAY RE - Leveraging Blockchain To Disrupt the Real Estate Industry

Leveraging Blockchain Technology To Disrupt The Real Estate Industry

On 1 August, we announced our new joint ven­ture RAAY RE we have found­ed togeth­er with our part­ners Ham­mer AG and Wert­grund AG. RAAY RE, which stands for RAAY Real Estate, is our first ver­ti­cal with­in the RAAY Oper­at­ing Sys­tem fam­i­ly. RRE is lever­ag­ing Blockchain tech­nol­o­gy to dis­rupt the real estate indus­try. The real estate indus­try has been boom­ing for more than 10 years and most play­ers with­in the indus­try have

Enterprise Evolution Model - The Modularisation of the Value Chain

Enterprise Evolution Model — The Modularisation of the Value Chain

Yes­ter­day was a great day: I could wit­ness the oper­a­tional­iza­tion of my enter­prise pro­to­col evo­lu­tion model. Nobody at the MunichRe sym­po­sium specif­i­cal­ly talked about the model. How­ev­er, the symposium’s theme “Mod­u­lar­i­sa­tion of the Insur­ance Value Chain” actu­al­ly is the oper­a­tional­ized ver­sion of it. Here’s my per­spec­tive on the next evo­lu­tion­ary phase of com­pa­nies: enter­pris­es will be orga­nized like mod­u­larised pro­to­cols: Enter­prise Evo­lu­tion Model — The Mod­u­lar­i­sa­tion of the Value Chain.

Cultural change triggers neuroplasticity in human brains

Cultural Change Triggers Neuroplasticity In Human Brains

We become cul­tured through train­ing in var­i­ous activ­i­ties, such as cus­toms, arts, inter­act­ing with peo­ple, the use of tech­nolo­gies, and the dis­cov­er­ing of ideas, the learn­ing of beliefs, shared philoso­phies, and reli­gion. Our brains are mod­i­fied by our cul­tur­al activ­i­ties: Cul­tur­al change trig­gers the neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty of human brains. Since all our brain mod­ules are plas­tic to some degree, we have the abil­i­ty to cre­ate sig­na­ture cul­tur­al activ­i­ties and to respond

Our functional cognitive architectures are changed by the culture we live in

Our Functional Cognitive Architectures Are Modified By Our Culture

Thanks to neu­ro­science research, we today know that we don‘t exclu­sive­ly absorb cul­ture through uni­ver­sal­ly shared, standard-issue, human per­cep­tu­al equip­ment, but cul­ture deter­mines what we can and can‘t per­ceive. Our func­tion­al cog­ni­tive archi­tec­tures are mod­i­fied by our cul­ture. The impact of this so-called per­cep­tu­al learn­ing is big­ger than most of us imag­ine. Not only lit­er­a­cy and lan­guage but also such fun­da­men­tal brain activ­i­ties, such as sight and per­cep­tion, are changed

Connecting the Dots - The Synchronicity Strategy

Connecting The Dots — The Synchronicity Strategy

Being an entre­pre­neur, my life has always been thrilling and rich in vari­ety. While study­ing and after a few stunts as a work­ing stu­dent at Henkel, it was clear to me to become self-employed — I want­ed to be my own boss. Being an entre­pre­neur, I always have my curios­i­ty radar turned on — which sup­ports my Con­nect­ing the Dots — the Syn­chronic­i­ty Strat­e­gy. I start­ed with Web 1.0, an online trav­el agency, a pure e‑commerce

After The Cognitive Revolution Comes The Mindful Revolution

After The Cognitive Revolution Comes The Mindful Revolution

Mankind seems to have reached a cross­roads. At envi­ron­men­tal, polit­i­cal, and eco­nom­ic lev­els more and more urgent haz­ard warn­ings appear. Man has to cope with this high-speed change, and there are many well-intended activ­i­ties already under­way. How­ev­er, what we need to sur­vive exceeds fast-track res­cue plans and well-meant com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment. We have to bethink our­selves of our inher­ent abil­i­ties and lever­age our entire skillset — after the Cog­ni­tive Rev­o­lu­tion there comes the

There is no such thing as pure chance - everything happens for a reason. Try to leverage on that by making yourself smaller.

There Is No Pure Coincidence — Everything Happens For A Reason

There are many ways of inter­pret­ing things that hap­pen in our lives. From my per­spec­tive, there is no such thing as a pure coin­ci­dence, but every­thing hap­pens for a rea­son — and there are ways to lever­age on and learn from that. Good and bad things alike, have helped me to under­stand my envi­ron­ment bet­ter and to improve the qual­i­ty of my life. It’s not that I’d be look­ing for bad things to

Gnothi Season - Know Yourself

Gnothi Seauton — Know Yourself Before Solving Global Challenges

It is said that a brain‘s size pos­i­tive­ly cor­re­lates with its host‘s level of intel­li­gence. The abil­i­ty of human beings to use tools in very elab­o­rate ways, to cre­ate art or to invent and tell sto­ries to each other peo­ple, seems to prove cer­tain suprema­cy over other crea­tures. As long as we won‘t have dis­cov­ered super­nat­ur­al life, humans regard them­selves as being the pride of cre­ation. Alas, we should start with

Start changing yourself - before criticising others

Change Yourself Before You Try Changing The World!

Hav­ing enjoyed a few days of ski­ing in Italy, I was remind­ed of a pearl of wis­dom by a ski instruc­tor of my kids. After a down­hill run, when dis­cussing what to improve ski­ing, the instruc­tor told my son: “Not the slope must change — it can’t — you must!” In other words: Change your­self before you try chang­ing the world! This sim­ple state­ment by a ver­i­ta­ble expert in this field (as opposed to my son’s

A snowflake never falls in the wrong place

A Snowflake Never Falls In The Wrong Place — The Beauty Of Snow

Dur­ing win­ter, it some­times snows in Ger­many, even in the cli­mate change-raddled 21st cen­tu­ry. In the first weeks of Jan­u­ary 2019, we are expe­ri­enc­ing heavy snow­falls — a weath­er con­di­tion that results in a vari­ety of effects, from the impos­si­bil­i­ty to bike to work, over flight can­cel­la­tions, or acci­dents. to snow­ball fights and deep pow­der ski­ing. We’re expe­ri­enc­ing the beau­ty of snow — and — that A snowflake never falls in the wrong

Crossing the chasm - Bridging the gap

Crossing The Chasm — Building Bridges To Close The Gap

Yes­ter­day over lunch, we dis­cussed the lib­er­tar­i­an notion of essen­tial­ly get­ting rid of lega­cy com­plex­i­ty, such as leg­is­la­tion, reg­u­la­tion, etc. Some of the early pro­po­nents and cre­ators of cryp­tocur­ren­cies have expressed lib­er­tar­i­an world views by try­ing to leave the mon­e­tary sys­tem of cen­tral banks and hand over the power of money cre­ation to the peo­ple. Extreme views like this might seem promis­ing, but I pre­fer cross­ing the chasm and build­ing bridges
