Exponential: How Accelerating Technology Is Leaving Us Behind and What to Do About It
Exponential technology is transforming all of our lives. Between faster computers, better software and bigger data, ours is the first era in human history in which technology is constantly accelerating. The result is an ‘exponential gap’ – between the power of new technology and humans’ ability to keep up.
Azhar shows how this exponential gap can explain our society’s most pressing problems, and how we can harness the power of tech to serve our real needs – fostering new ways of doing business.
