Podcast Ep. 45 - This young entrepreneur is building AI tech that will change the future of parks and conservation - A conversation with Samuel Malkasian

If you think technology won't influence the parks and conservation world, this episode will make you think otherwise. And if you think today's young people aren't planning to change to world, you haven't talked to this guy...

Samuel Malkasian, a young tech entrepreneur in Des Moines, is developing AI systems that can make climbing walls safer and that can "see" in places without cameras. And he's doing it all with no venture capital. He's currently working for free because he believes in the ability of technology to make the world a better place.

Before I met Sam, I had never even considered the potential impact that emerging technologies could have on our industry. Now that I've talked with him, I can't stop thinking about the possibilities.

And that's what I like about this conversation. While we do geek out a little about what technology exists today, we talk a lot about what might be coming and how much that's going to help us in the future.

Even if you're not a tech junky, I think you'll enjoy this episode.
