The Industries of the Future: Understanding the Changes That Will Shape the Next Decade

If the 20 years from 1995 to 2015 were shaped in significant measure by digitization and the rise of the Internet, what’s next? What will define the next decade? Drawing from his highly-praised New York Times best-seller The Industries of the Future, Alec Ross provides a view into the forces that will carve tomorrow’s economy and the difficult, necessary steps that must be taken to prepare ourselves and our children for a world with powerful artificial intelligence, robotics, and scientific developments that will change our lives at work and home.
