Augmented: Life in the Smart Lane by Brett King

By Brett King

The net and cellphone are only the newest in a 250 12 months lengthy cycle of disruption that has always replaced the best way we are living, the best way we paintings and how we have interaction. the arriving Augmented Age, notwithstanding, grants a degree of disruption, behavioral shifts and adjustments which are remarkable. whereas shoppers at the present time are tenting outdoors of an Apple shop ready to be one of many first to attain a brand new Apple Watch or iPhone, the subsequent iteration of wearables could be capable of expect if we are prone to have a middle assault and suggest a plan of action. We watch information of Google's self-driving autos, yet do not most likely observe this implies innovative towns must ban human drives within the subsequent decade simply because us people are too risky.

Following on from the commercial or computing device Age, the distance Age and the electronic Age, the Augmented Age can be in line with 4 key disruptive topics - man made Intelligence, event layout, clever Infrastructure, and HealthTech. traditionally the former 'ages' got major disruption and alterations, yet on a web foundation jobs have been created, wealth used to be better, and the health and wellbeing and safeguard of society more suitable. what is going to the Augmented Age convey? Will robots take our jobs, and AI's subsume us as inferior intelligences, or will this bring in a brand new age of abundance?

Augmented is a booklet on destiny historical past, yet greater than that, it's a tale approximately the way you will stay your lifestyles in a global that would switch extra within the subsequent twenty years than it has within the final 250 years. Are you prepared to evolve? simply because if heritage proves something, you do not have a lot of a choice.
