The Future Is Faster Than You Think desires to paint a positive picture of humanity’s future and focuses on how the acceleration and convergence of exponential technologies reshapes all industries and disrupts all aspects of human society. In the coming decades, we can expect to live our wildest technology dreams as companies adopt the value of digital transformation.
Kotler and Diamandis offer examples of how exponential waves of progress in genetics, nanotechnology, robotics, VR and AR, drones, sensors, batteries, 5G networks, 3D-printing, blockchain, quantum computing and artificial intelligence create massive disruptions that bring our concept of the distant future to the present.
“The Power of Convergence”
Explores the top ten technologies currently on exponential growth curves and examines current and future trends.
“The Rebirth of Everything”
Technologies are converging in nine specific industries and reshaping our world.
“The Faster Future”
Considers the environmental, economic, and existential risks that threaten the progress we’re making.
The Future Is Faster Than You Think covers a very large number of advances in major areas of our lives that cannot and should not be ignored; however, the central topic of the book is artificial intelligence, which glues all of these sections together. It also covers the limitations and dangers of AI and other technologies but still keeps a positive outlook on the entire field.
Digitopia’s Final Take:
We loved this book because it takes the future away from fantasy and contextualizes just how close we are to a world we think is already beyond imagination. If we only embraced digital transformation to its full capacity, what more could human imagination achieve? Give us a call, and let us know what you think the future holds.
