‘Take on Board’

with Helga Svendsen

Okay, my brain does what now while I’m on a Zoom board meeting. Dr Fiona Kerr explains on the podcast.

Today on the Take on Board podcast Helga is speaking to Dr Fiona Kerr about neuroscience and technology in boardrooms. She’s  particularly interested to talk about AI and how that might impact discussion in the boardroom.
Fiona is the Deputy Chair of the Catalyst Foundation. Fiona researches, speaks and consults on a range of topics including the neuroscience of human-human and human-technology interaction, neurogenesis, and how good leaders create organisations that flourish. Her interest in the science and power of human connectivity has developed over more than 30 years working in a variety of sectors in Australia and overseas. Encompassing power generation, automotive manufacturing, defence, pharmaceuticals, state government, and creative companies including Cirque du Soleil!

She founded The NeuroTech Institute and works with business leaders, policymakers, engineers, scientists, and thought leaders to investigate how humans shape each other, how technology shapes us and thus how we should shape technology. The centre explores how we can leverage the incredible capabilities of both humans and AI. It discovers how we can maintain human connection in an increasingly technologised world, and how to create quality interaction and partnerships between humans and AI.
