AI for Radiology? It’s Operational AI

Dear Enthusiasts of the Future,

Welcome back to Next Future Today, your go-to podcast for exploring what’s coming, and how you can purposefully create your next future… today!

In our latest episode, we delved into the fascinating world of radiology and AI technology, featuring an insightful conversation with Jeff Chang, co-founder of RadAI. We explored how AI is revolutionizing radiology by streamlining reporting processes and reducing burnout among radiologists.

Radiologists often face overwhelming workloads, spending the majority of their time dictating reports for hundreds of studies with thousands of images each day. However, the release of a groundbreaking AI product has significantly alleviated this burden. By automatically generating report conclusions and recommendations, radiologists have seen a reduction in the amount they need to dictate, leading to decreased burnout and improved efficiency.

We also learned how RadAI’s operational AI solutions are seamlessly integrated into radiologists’ workflows, creating a zero-click solution that minimizes interruptions. Customized language and over 300 models and algorithms have significantly improved accuracy, demonstrating the potential of AI in improving healthcare processes.

In addition to the innovative AI applications, Jeff discussed the importance of ethical and beneficial AI implementation, emphasizing its role as a support system for radiologists. Furthermore, the episode touched on the potential impact of AI on job roles and the need for AI to be a force for positive change.

Next Future Today is committed to exploring the most cutting-edge developments in technology and their impact on various industries. We hope you find this episode as enlightening and thought-provoking as we did.

What is The Leader Way? From Domination to Empowerment in the Workplace

Audio:

Video:

Welcome to Next Future Today, hosted by Dan Keldsen.

Today’s episode is What is The Leader Way? From Domination to Empowerment in the Workplace” with Leadership Expert Jamie Mason Cohen – NextFutureToday Ep 14

Find more episodes at https://NextFutureToday.com, on YouTube, or in your favorite podcast app.

In this episode of NextFutureToday, I’m interviewing Jamie Mason Cohen, a well known leadership development and resilience expert with an array of stories that, no matter how improbable they are (hint: he doesn’t take NO for an answer… and I mean that literally), are just do.damn.good. and chock full of tips for work and life.

During our conversation, he shared some incredible quotes that really resonated with me, that I’ll call out here:

1. “Leadership should be a shared responsibility and privilege.” This quote truly underscores the importance of collaboration and empowering others within leadership roles. It reminds us that leadership is not about being the dominant force (like a hard charging Jack Welch, or Steve Jobs for example), but rather about elevating and supporting those around us.

2. “Experimentation is the key to effective leadership.” The value of trying new approaches and thinking outside the box is an uncommon take that’s well worth putting into action. It highlights the need for leaders to embrace innovation and learn from their mistakes, creating an environment that fosters growth and adaptability.

3. “Leaders should be ‘learn it alls,’ not ‘know it alls’.” Having a way with words, and memorable phrases, is the sign of a great communicator, and this saying encapsulates the mindset that leaders should strive for – continuous learning and humility. It reminds us that true leaders are open to new ideas, receptive to feedback, and willing to admit when they make mistakes. There’s much more, but for the rest… you’ll need to watch/listen. Go go go! And create YOUR Next Future Today. #leadership#leadershipskills#communicationskills#saturdaynightlive

Secrets to Successful Software Pricing with Luke Hohmann

Audio:

Video:

Welcome to Next Future Today, hosted by Dan Keldsen.

Find more episodes at https://NextFutureToday.com, on YouTube, or in your favorite podcast app.

This interview between Dan Keldsen and Luke Hohmann discusses the importance of pricing and profit streams in software businesses, based on Luke’s latest book “Software Profit Streams” a spiritual successor to the long legacy of “canvas” style books first started by Business Model Generation.

“Software Profit Streams” is remarkably easy to understand, beautiful on the eyes, but quickly allows you to go VERY deep into software pricing.

Key Points

  • 🕰️ Time-based cadence is one of the triggers to change pricing.
  • 🏢 Internal triggers like adding new features can also necessitate pricing changes.
  • 🌍 External triggers such as regulatory changes, competitive forces, or hardware changes can impact pricing decisions.
  • 💰 Customer benefit analysis is the foundation for effective pricing strategies.
  • 🎯 Ilities (Reliability, Maintainability, Curability, Scalability) can be recast into current or future economic terms to inform pricing and licensing decisions.
  • 🤝 Intangible benefits of working with a company, such as being more flexible and willing to listen, should be considered in customer benefit analysis.
  • 📈 Pricing decisions should be revisited at least once a year, but more frequently in fast-growing products.
  • 🧑‍🤝‍🧑 Collaborative decision-making is essential for pricing strategies.
  • 🧠 Simulations can be useful in building mental models, but relying too much on them can be risky due to unknown external triggers.

Keywords

  • Customer benefit analysis: Assessing the economic value or structure of a software’s benefits.
  • Ilities: Reliability, Maintainability, Curability, Scalability; attributes that can be recast into economic terms to inform pricing decisions.
  • Infrequent transaction: An event that occurs rarely, such as selling a house or revisiting pricing decisions.
  • Intangible benefits: Non-quantifiable benefits of a product or service, such as being a nice company to work with.
  • External triggers: Factors outside of a company that can impact pricing decisions, such as regulatory changes or competitive forces.

Here Be Dragons with Rich Mulholland and Dan Keldsen

Audio:

Video:

Time for another episode of Next Future Today!

Find more episodes at NextFutureToday.com, on YouTube, or in your favorite podcast app.

This is Season 1, Episode 6, and the topic is “Here Be Dragons.” My guest is Rich Mulholland, who is a professional speaker, a salesperson, an author, has a pro music/entertainment background supporting a variety of internationally known rock bands, he’s a sales and speaking trainer, and perhaps most importantly, one heck of a storyteller.

Rich’s approach to explaining not just that storytelling is important, but HOW TO CREATE WELL CRAFTED STORIES, is among the best I’ve found.

I know I’ve found gold when I read a book and follow someone’s social feed, when most of the resources they mention are not the same old list that every one refers to.

And his latest book, “Here Be Dragons” is an incredibly compelling read, chock full of memorable nuggets.

And my company, and the product we discussed early in the conversation is:

Thanks to Rich for his humor, insights and support – he’s serving a very similar audience in the same spirit as we are – there’s power in simplicity, and in making compelling presentations a normality rather than a rarity.

Innovation Podcast Theory of Constraints

Constraints are made to be Broken with Lisa Scheinkopf and Dan Keldsen

Audio:

Video:

Time for another episode of Next Future Today!

Today’s topic is all about Constraints.

Well, maybe not ALL about constraints, but that’s the main target.

Specifically, we’ll be talking about the Theory of Constraints, or ToC as it’s called. And my guest is Lisa Scheinkopf, Founder of Jenrada.

Lisa founded Jenrada in 2019 after 14 years as a Partner at Goldratt Consulting where she led the company’s consulting practice in North America and India and headed the Goldratt School. 

If you went to a business school, or perhaps have had a manufacturing job, you may have run across one of the first big best-selling “Business Novels” – The Goal, which is a wonderfully easy to understand romp through Theory of Constraints.

Or more recently, with a decidedly enterprise development twist into DevOps, “The Phoenix Project” – which is a similarly awesome book that extends ToC out of physical manufacturing, into bits and bytes.

For this episode, if you are interested in smarter change management, a way to look at processes and opportunities by hunting down constraints and, often, eradicating constraints that may have been blocking you or your organization for years, maybe even decades, then we have a treat for you.

Let’s dive on into it!
