Summary
Technology moves fast - so where will it have taken us by 2050? How will it affect the way we live? And how far are we willing to let it go? -- The writers predict the vast changes that technology will bring to everything from food production to health care, energy output, manufacturing and the military balance. They also consider the impact on jobs, and how we can prepare for the opportunities, as well as the dangers, that await. Thought-provoking, engaging and full of insight from the forefront of tech innovation, Megatech is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand tomorrow's world
Summary
The book invites us on a journey to the future, contemplating where and how far technology might take us. The industry's biggest leaders, academics, writers, and journalists—including Dr. Frank Wilzcek, Alastair Reynolds, and Melinda Gates—examine what the impact of technology might be in 2050 and consider the policies we might need, both to make the most of future opportunities and to tackle the environmental, economic, and social challenges ahead
