Scott Amyx is a thought leader, speaker and author on the Internet of Things and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. He is Chair and Managing Partner at Amyx Ventures, and a Singularity University/Smart City Accelerator Mentor and Startup Board Member.
He joined Jean Chatzky in the THINK Studio to discuss Blockchain, IoT and Human Currency. Scott underlines the importance that human beings play in the creation of groundbreaking technology such as the blockchain. As an investor in computing and smart wearables (Fitbit), he understands the connection between robotics, the Internet of Things and how these interact to create beautiful products and amplify the capacities of human beings. The fundamental difference between human beings and machines is that human beings have the capacity to feel empathy on a number of things. If people can work together and in the process understand the limits, strengths and capacities that are presented to them, the possibility of what we could do with blockchain technology is limitless.
