Business Bio   LinkedIn Profile
Technology shapes the human experience, and too often not for the better. Rather than settling for an avalanche of gadgets, apps, and autonomous gizmos, we need to think about, talk about, and (eventually) come to some kind of agreement on what might constitute a better” human life in the digital age.
I envision a world of innovators who shape technology for the good of society. Innovators, after all, are not just scientists and technologists; we are artists, policy makers, investors, businesspeople, students, educators: any human who participates in identifying problems and inventing solutions that better the world. What I foresee is a system enabling more people to self-identify as innovators, culminating in a participatory technocracy: a society that will ensure the clearest path for innovators to resist the degradation of humanity by war, disease, poverty, injustice, pestilence, pollution, tyranny, and the harmful use of technology.
Innovation is the door to the future, and inventors hold its key. Hope, optimism, open mindedness, cooperation, and risk taking are fundamental to innovators. They are principles to be cherished and supported. It is deeply gratifying to build a community at Xinova where such inventors are empowered and rewarded to create and play. Technology can work for the betterment of humankind, as it has for much of history. But to realize that aim, more people need to understand and engage with the process of innovation.
As CEO of Xinova, I visit innovators, companies, and governments around the world, connecting problems to solutions. In 2005 I founded the predecessor to Xinova and co-managed it from 2008.
I have been inventing since I was a teenager, and currently hold over a thousand patents worldwide across healthcare, computing, networking, energy, and material sciences. As an entrepreneur, I have founded or co-founded over a dozen companies, including Terrapower, Kymeta, Vigilance, and Benemilk. I advise several others.
