Podcast Episode 50: Traceable Time as a Service

On episode 50 of GrantTree’s innovation podcast, What Comes Next?…

What Comes Next? is 50 episodes old! Yes, 50! And we’re celebrating with a real doozy of an interview.

We’re speaking to Richard Hoptroff, whose self-titled startup is providing ‘digital time for the virtual world’ through a truly unique offering: Traceable Time as a Service.

During a broad and frankly eye-opening conversation, physicist-by-training Richard discusses his long career working in chronology – in which he’s done everything from predicting the future with neural networks to dating the ancient past – and explains the growing importance of trackable, synchronised time to our ever-accelerating civilisation.
