Ray Wang - Currency is going to be the first battle that we face

Ray Wang - Currency is going to be the first battle that we face

What we actually realized is we've been digging our own grave by recreating the matrix. I mean if you just look at what's going on in the U.S. with the NSA issues, it's basically we’ve recreated the matrix. All the things that we thought for our convenience is they're going to come back and haunt us because the digital exhaust that we live is actually going to incriminate ourselves, and that is pretty scary. We may come back a 100[...]
Ray Wang - If you're not organized by self-interest you're in trouble

Ray Wang - If you're not organized by self-interest you're in trouble

I actually look at organizations as organized by self-interest and the… how strong, or how long that bond is, is actually relative to achieving that self-interest. So if you've lost the ability to bring people together towards that goal, and in some cases is it shareholder value, is it community, you know, is it giving back to a community, on a community responsibility or social responsibility or is it a basic, you know, socialist purpose of actually just providing people[...]

Ray Wang - That's the piece of humanity that I will never relinquish

That may happen where, let's say I'm a physician or let's say I'm an insurance agent or a scientist, and I notice that the data fits a common set of patterns that we've been looking for. And that may actually lead to less creativity because we run it through the patterns, and then we make a decision on the patterns, and then we think we know everything, when in reality we haven’t spent much time discovering newer patterns, or looking[...]

Ray Wang - We may discover that we are schizophrenic

We're getting better data. I think its going to take sometime. I mean this is the equivalent… We are, where we are in terms of making that next best suggestion or next best action, is at the same point when people were just beginning the process of coding a mouse movement. We know so little about human interaction and behaviors; you've just got to figure out how to start digitalizing that process. So you think we need some kind of personal[...]
Ray Wang - We need more cognitive capabilities to filter

Ray Wang - We need more cognitive capabilities to filter

What's really happening is this if you believe people can multitask or do significantly powerful parallel processing, you believe that, that exist. What's happening is if you could find one tool that would allow you to have that many channels at the same time that would occur. Back to my point is you know I could be on Twitter right or tweeting about the fact we're having a conversation, but I'm on one machine and I'll be using this on[...]
Ray Wang - We have multiple roles, multiple personalities

Ray Wang - We have multiple roles, multiple personalities

What I'm really focused on is really context. The contextual piece is going to be so important. It's our role right now. It's our relationship. It's how we're connected together today. It's really our intent. It's the products and services we own. It’s the relationships and hierarchies that we're connected to. It's our sentiment, right. All these things play a role. It’s the time of the day, and so I think context is going to play a bigger role than[...]
Ray Wang - Business technology has to evolve towards where consumer is

Ray Wang - Business technology has to evolve towards where consumer is

I think we're actually in the midst of a shift, right, when we look at design thinking, or think about design thinking principles, we study the consumer. We study scenarios. We look at ideation. We figure out what people are doing, then we try to adapt to that. And sometimes we make additions, so that we make the process less friction, right, and sometimes we actually insert friction because we want to get a response. We want to create a[...]
