Our Story

American Professional Network (APN) is an AI startup specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Exponential Technology applications.  We work with our clients in identifying where disruption is coming from and how to transform their organizations to harness the new technology. We focus on education in helping organizations compete in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

We hope you are interested in learning more.

We live in exciting times of fundamental technological change. The pace and scope of groundbreaking scientific and technological advances coming from research facilities, start-ups and large organizations never cease to amaze us.   The “science fiction” of yesterday is today becoming a reality in new products products and services that we won’t be able to imagine having lived without. These rapid advances in technology, however, are doing more than providing us with new capabilities—they are changing the way we live, work and relate to one another. The convergence of digital technologies with breakthroughs in materials science and biology means that we are seeing the emergence of entirely new ways in which to live. In both subtle and explicit ways, technology is also changing what it means to be human.

As a society, we have a proven set of techniques for managing big companies and we know the best practices for building physical products.  But when it comes to startups, innovation and harnessing AI  we are still shooting in the dark.  We are still relying on vision, chasing the “great men” who can make magic happen, or trying to analyze our new products to death. APN believes that strong institutions and capable administrations are most effective and lasting when their employees and collaborators are involved in the implementation process.    

Every company across every industry is now compelled to reconsider their traditional ways of doing business to keep pace with rapidly changing technology and consumer expectations. In the coming decades, the technologies driving the fourth industrial revolution will fundamentally transform the entire structure of the world economy, our communities and our human identities. These profound changes highlight the great responsibilities we face as a civilization. 

We at APN combine objectivity with a strong understanding of organizational change and an in-depth knowledge of technology solutions to help reshape your business. Our distinguishing factor, however, lies beyond our experience and technical expertise. We approach our initiatives with empathy and creativity. We understand that the most important part of this process is creating a solution that works for the people who will be using it every day.

To act with purpose, leveraging exponential technologies to definitively solve humanity’s greatest challenges.

 

We are not bystanders.
To creating a future of abundance that is bright, equitable, and leaves no one behind. We do no harm and refuse to compromise others for our own benefit. Our passion for the well-being of humanity drives our action.

We lead courageously and set an example for changing the world.

The Ten Commandments of the Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer (C.A.I.O.)

  1. Thou shalt Soar with L.O.A.R. by acknowledging that "Fundamental measures of information technology follow predictable and exponential trajectories." L.O.A.R. (The Law of Accelerating Returns) is all-powerful.
  2. Thou shalt acknowledge the name Ray Kurzweil as the 1st Einstein of the 1st Technology Century of the 21st Century.
  3. Honor thy Earth's History. It is the Technological Singularity that shalt have the most significant impact on humankind.

  5. Thou shalt acknowledge The Diamandis Six D's of Disruption. They are a fact of life.
  6. Thou shalt commit to and think like an Exponential Organization (ExO). Always harness MTP, IDEAS, and SCALE.
  7. Honor thy Ex before Cx and increase both with FLOW.
  8. Thou shalt recognize that thy 4th Industrial Revolution shall usher in opportunity and a better life for everyone on the planet.
  9. Thou shalt acknowledge Albert Einstein was right when he said, "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
  10. Thou shalt acknowledge Carl Sagan was right when he said: "We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good."
