A revolution is unfolding, invisible, global and virtually impossible to avoid. More than 90% of the world’s data only appeared in recent years and is slowly transforming everything from retail to medicine. Today, technology pretty much influences everything. Where should we look for signs of what lies ahead? What will advances in science – physics and biology in particular – make possible, and where might technology bump up against ethical limits?
How do investors spot emerging technologies and where are they putting their money now? Will change really be as fast paced and earth shattering as considered by many? Virtual reality, self-driving cars, private spaceflight and gene editing are just four areas of imagined futures that are fast becoming a reality. This is underpinned by striking claims that we have today, accurate, complete equations adequate to provide the foundation of nuclear physics, material science, chemistry and all plausible forms of engineering. As a result, calculation can increasingly replace experimentation in developing technology allowing for accelerated progress.
Humanity is building new technologies with seemingly limitless practical application and impacting all types of commerce and customer/supplier engagements. Data has become a competitive advantage for an enterprise, yet companies are just beginning to harness the power of analytics and machine learning. As it has done before, technology is laying the groundwork for decades of profound yet potentially complementary change.
Technology is combining with the customer and employee enagement experience at an ever increasing rate, to differentiate companies from their competitors. Those that get this right will succeeed and those that don’t will cease to exist.
