"The incredible AI of today is not some fearsome form of superior life," said Follett who, in addition to his role with Creative Next, is a principal of the show's primary sponsor, GoInvo. "It is a tool that is already taking away mundane, repetitive tasks that enable creatives to pursue increasingly more humane and intellectual tasks with their time. Creative Next helps us understand not just what is here and coming soon, but how we can leverage it to best help us."

The first season of the show, which explored the theme of Learning, was heard by thousands of listeners from over 40 countries. Season two will feature exciting guests like Payal Arora, the author of "The Next Billion Users," AJ Christian, the Founder and Head of Development of Open Television, and Andy Mauro, co-founder and CEO of Automat.

"We want to give our listeners the most complete possible picture of what to expect," said Knemeyer. "We thought communication changed thanks to the smartphone but it is only just the beginning. Not only will the ways we communicate with each other undergo radical change, but the way we communicate with machines, and how machines communicate with each other, will be more central to our daily lives — most especially to the ways we work."

The primary sponsor of Creative Next is GoInvo, a design practice dedicated to innovation in healthcare. The show is also sponsored by Design Museum Foundation and Business Innovation Factory. Other important affiliations are a partnership with the publication Towards Data Science and as a newsroom in the Civil community.
