AI study – neuronal networking
The future that is fully operated by AI in 2030 – #FUTaf19, 2019
At the Future Affairs 2019, we were invited to work on several, potential future challenges – caused by, related to, or to be solved by AI. This map is a visualisation of the Neural Network (ANN) the team created subconcsiously to solve a specific task.
All team members, personal experiences and ideas are reflected in it, and it also points to a major future insight: AI will make every emotional driver in human decision making processes obsolete – beside privacy and the fears. Or in other words: InsurTech remains the core answer for the future that is fully operated by AI in 2030.

Foodspread – a shattered #startup
Founded in Capetown, South Africa, 2014
Foodspread was my very first start-up and project in South Africa.
In 2014 we found out that export rates of food were almost as high as the hunger of the broader township population accross the country.
Together with students from the GSB – Graduate School of Business Capetown – we facilitated the idea to change the food supply and logistics chain and to use modern yet simple tech to give power back to the people.
Our broader plan was also to trigger change from a centralised food system to a broader, human-centric food supply and logistics network that creates new opportunitities by cutting all the middle men, and connecting farmers directly with township citizens.
Foodspread was nominated for the Alpha Stage/VC pitch series at the RISE Conf’ 15 in Hong Kong – with the call to succeed not just in South Africa, but also in South East Asia.
