I first met Nikola in 2011 at Singularity University where he was one of 80 students chosen from around the world to join us in studying exponential technology on a full scholarship. Nikola had already started and hosted the first and most popular podcast on topics related to the Technological Singularity such as Artificial Intelligence, Genetics, Robotics, Synthetic Biology, and Nanotechnology. And he had already accumulated hundreds of interviews with the best experts from around the world. Recently I had the pleasure of watching Nikola deliver a keynote speech for the Ontario Medical Association where he literally blew the minds of 90 medical professionals, some of whom kept asking him questions so late into the evening that the cleaning crew had to ask us to leave. Nikola was impressively knowledgeable on a wide variety of related topics, professional in his delivery and authentic in his behavior. I don't hesitate to recommend him as a speaker to anyone or any organization interested in expanding their world-view as wide as possible to prepare for our world of exponential technology and disruptive change.
