TV3 News interviewed Alec Ross, Senior Innovation Advisor to US Secretary of State Hillary Cinton, about his role in the upcoming Project Revolution conference in September 2012. This conference is being organised by Auckland University to study the impacts of digital innovation and the rise of social media.
During the interview Alec was asked if there were any New Zealand technology projects that have caught his eye.
“There’s one that’s really interesting called (C-Dax) Pasture Meter. It’s fascinating. It takes 200 measurements per second to identify how much grass is in the paddock and to more effectively distribute dairy cows. And it’s being used all over the world right now and it’s adding, I’ve heard, up to $57,000 per dairy farmer in revenue. So this is a big deal. It’s the everyday innovations that can change the world.”
In 2012, Newsweek named Alec in their Digital Power Index Top 100 influencers, listing him among other “public servants defining digital regulatory boundaries.”
