#84 - How AI could save Christmas

22 mins | Nov 1, 2021

Today's episode from 1st November 2021. We begin the month by asking whether tech firms solve our shipping crisis? After the decades-old system of "just-in-time shipping" proving unreliable because of supply chain issues, we explore how businesses are turning to AI. Later, we’ve got an insightful piece that will make you think differently about willpower and how you can harness it to motivate you. The supply chains that crisscross the world are caught in the perfect storm of pandemic related difficulties, labour issues, and skyrocketing demand for home delivery. According to the experts, technology is not going to solve these problems, but it can help companies weather the worst of it. From MIT Technology Review, Will Douglas Heaven takes a critical look at how AI and accurate delivery logistics could help companies find the right balance between resilience and efficiency, and give them the best chance of surviving in the post-pandemic world. Contrary to the “ego depletion” theory, willpower is not a depletable resource if you know how to use it wisely. This instalment of Nir and Far reveals how to think about willpower in the right way and harness the power of self-compassion to motivate ourselves through times we feel it is depleted. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
