Today I’m speaking with Tom Kalil.
Tom is Chief Innovation Officer at Schmidt Futures, where he leads projects to harness technology for social impact, improve science policy, and identify and pursue 21st-century moonshots.
Tom has previously spent more than a decade in the White House, helping to design and launch national science and technology initiatives in areas such as nanotech, data science, commercial space, and many more.
Although I had about a hundred more questions to ask Tom, we cover lots of ground from how to build moonshot cultures to the role of the generalist and the relationship between tech and policy.
