Everyone is talking about AI. But something bigger is brewing behind the scenes. What is a Technology Trilogy Engineer?

SwissCognitive_Logo_RGBLet’s start from the beginning. We humans still believe that we understand non-linear processes. But in reality, we don’t. We can’t even get a bathtub halfway to a comfortable bathing temperature after the hundredth time. We are not made for things that we cannot grasp linearly. We are so overwhelmed by a simple weather forecast that we usually don’t even know what the weather is going to be like after reading the weather report. Intuition doesn’t want to enter our heads.

This leads me to 3 conclusions:

  1. Things are complex, and we have simplified them so that we can understand and apply them. And that’s a good thing otherwise we’d all be overwhelmed. Anyone who goes skiing in winter, for example, knows this. There are the 3×3 rules of avalanche safety. That’s how it’s understood and it’s practical, but the reality is much more complex. So complex that we don’t understand it and can’t process it, especially not in the terrain at minus 20 degrees.
  2. We deduce the future from experience, even and especially with highly volatile systems. We call this intuition, but what we mean is “competent behaviour in the face of complete cluelessness”. We tend to behave in this way when complexity is involved, perhaps in order to create a certain logic. For example, we believe that the next logical step after assisted driving is autonomous driving. In other words, we describe this change as “one step”. In reality, the technology is 1000 times more complex in this single step. When Steve Ballmer made fun of Apple in 2007, Microsoft sold millions of smartphones a year, and Apple none. Today, Apple sells that amount in one day.
  3. We like to forget so badly we are practically world champions in it. Individual and social amnesia, so to speak. Before boarding the plane, we check our boarding pass to remember our seat number, but as soon as we get on the plane, we have forgotten everything.

And now we are surprised about AI, as if we had forgotten that calculators, Wikipedia, Google search, Excel, smartphones and even our kitchen stove have long surpassed us.

Wake up! With our experience, logic, and knowledge, we will hardly grasp technological developments, far less predict them.

We need to engage more intensively with technology. Much more!

What we see today with AI and its rapid development dazzles us. We are amazed, stunned and therefore blind to see what is coming.

My prognosis:

  1. AI applied directly will boost productivity.
  2. AI applied in technologies will define new markets.
  3. AI merged with multiple technologies will change the foundations of our world.

We are already experiencing the first one today. The second one is also already advancing in the B2B sector. But the third one will be the most exciting. For example, the combination of AI, crypto, and blockchain will fundamentally change the trade of all assets in this world. And AI, biotech, and quantum will completely alter our understanding of ourselves, nature, and the healthcare industry.

For the first time in history, we will be able to answer complex questions with complex systems. I admit that I am very excited. This is beyond our current understanding.

Therefore, I suggest a new professional category: Technology Trilogy Engineer – chefs who understand how to rediscover technology recipes.
