VPP008 How to tame diamonds with Robert Bogdanowicz


How can we use diamonds to change the future?

Diamonds are with us since the very beginning and they will outlast any form of life, that’s for sure. They’re beautiful, expensive and unbelievably practical in technology. How many different uses could you name for diamonds? Five, ten? Or maybe a hundred?

Let’s stop for a moment and think about innovation because that’s what it’s all about.

What does come up first in your mind when you hear the magical word? Progress? Achievements? Technology?

Now, let’s look at what Cambridge Dictionary has to say…


It doesn’t say anything spectacular does it?

My view on it is that in order to innovate you have to have something that’s already very well known, something almost forgotten and use it in a new way so it brings extraordinary benefit to anyone. That’s true especially when using a very inexpensive thing or method to create something completely new of higher monetary value.

In my opinion it’s not possible to innovate out of the blue, there’s always an origin. And today the origin is a diamond!

In this episode my guest is prof. Robert Bogdanowicz, one of the top Polish scientists. We talk about some great use cases for diamonds and other things which go throughout researchers mind. Enjoy!

PS: There’s a lot of tech jargon in this episode. You’ve been warned! 🙂
