WHY H.I. UPGRADE EXISTS
Technology is developing faster and faster and it is not likely to slow down. This will have a tremendous impact on society, organizations and individuals. It will mean a lot of new challenges as people will have to adapt, but also an incredible amount of opportunities for those that can take advantage of all new possibilities.
At the same time humanity is facing big challenges such as climate change, raise of AI, fake news, increased globalization, but also a chance to continue to make this a better world for all humans. As we are in the Anthropocene age, this is in our hands - but mistakes can have big consequences.
Ben Parker (Spiderman’s uncle) once said: “With great power, comes great responsibility”. H.I. Upgrade exists because we truly believe that to be responsible and thrive in this accelerating environment humans need to be curious have an active life-long learning mindset, be fact based and innovate towards making a better world for all humans and living things on earth.

Google Assistant is the first employee and responsible for many administrative tasks at HI Upgrade. She has a lot of knowledge and mainly helps manage tasks. She loves to tell facts, answer all sorts of questions, schedule things and is good at reminding. She has a learning mindset and thinks it “is amazing to work with Philip” …but then she also knows who is paying the electricity bill.
