Technology is accelerating far more quickly; almost anyone could have imagined.  During the next decade, we will experience more upheaval and create more wealth than we have in the past one hundred years.  In this summary, futurists Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler provide a blueprint for how our world will change in response to the next ten years of rapid technological disruption.

Technology is accelerating far more quickly almost anyone could have imagined.  During the next decade, we will experience more upheaval and create more wealth than we have in the past one hundred years.  In The Future Is Faster Than You Think, futurists Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler provide a blueprint for how our world will change in response to the next ten years of rapid technological disruption. They investigate how wave after wave of exponentially accelerating technologies will impact both our daily lives and society as a whole.  They answer a question like:

“What will happen as AI, robotics, virtual reality, digital biology, and sensors crash into 3D printing, blockchain, and global gigabit networks?”  

“How will these convergences transform today’s legacy industries?”  

And, “What will happen to the way we raise our kids, govern our nations, and care for our planet?”

They also probe the science of technological convergence and how it will reinvent every part of our lives—transportation, retail, advertising, education, health, entertainment, food, and finance—taking humanity into uncharted territories and reimagining the world as we know to provide a prescient look at our impending future.
