While Alec Ross was working as Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State, he traveled to forty-one countries, exploring the latest advances coming out of every continent. From startup hubs in Kenya to R&D labs in South Korea, Ross has seen what the future holds.
In The Industries of the Future, Ross provides a âlucid and informed guideâ (Financial Times) to the changes coming in the next ten years. He examines the fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics and artificial intelligence, cybercrime and cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the impact of digital technology on money and markets. In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we have to adapt to the changing nature of work? Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race? How can the worldâs rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley with their own innovation hotspots? And what can todayâs parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow?
Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to show how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live. Sharing insights from global leadersâfrom the founders of Google and Twitter to defense experts like David PetraeusâRoss reveals the technologies and industries that will drive the next stage of globalization. The Industries of the Future is âa riveting and mind-bending bookâ (New York Journal of Books), a âmust readâ (Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach for America) regardless of âwhether you follow these fields closely or you still think of Honda as a car rather than a robotics companyâ (Forbes).
