The Human Brain Vs Innovation Overload - SxSW 2015

Download to read offline

As technologists, marketers and entrepreneurs we are challenged to drive business growth through a vast array of connected capabilities. Understanding what these capabilities are and how they work together requires knowledge across an overwhelming range of technologies and platforms. And this often seems like mastering a sea of shifting sands. To compound this challenge, our brains don’t have infinite capacity to retain all the knowledge we have gained over our lives.

But is this truly a phenomenon of the information age or has society worked through these issues before? Over 2000 years ago, the ancient Greeks and Romans developed a technique called a memory palace which provides a framework for people to organize and store information in their minds. Today, record-setting memory champions use these techniques to memorize over 65,000 digits of the number Pi. Can we use methods such as these today to help improve our ability to stay current with our rapidly-paced innovation culture?
