Technology acceleration – A Futurist view

While attending the Seattle Technology Leadership Summit, I was privileged to hear from a futurist that I believe understands how fast technology is accelerating for use in business and in our personal lives.  I encourage you to read his website.

We at Ascension have been involved with a number of initiatives and projects involving newer ways to help our society.  For instance, Smart or “Connected” cities technology is very new and exciting.    When Steve talks about the new “digital transformation”. He stated “This wave will result from rapid advances in artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, robotics, autonomous vehicles, blockchain technology, machine vision, conversational computing, augmented reality, 5G networking, 3D printing, and more. We now live at the height of the mobile era. Every company needs to understand how to prepare for the post-mobile era.”  I believe he is correct, and as leaders in business we need to embrace these facts.
