Alec Ross, is answering the question: 'What's next?' mapping out the advances and quandaries that will emerge in the next ten years, examining the specific fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics, artificial intelligence, the commercialization of genomics, cybercrime and the impact of digital technology. 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. The book explores several industries including robotics, genetics, coding and big data. Ross explores how advances in robotics and life sciences will change the way we live—robots, artificial intelligence and machine learning will have impact on our lives. According to Ross, dramatic advances in life sciences will increase our life expectancy—but not all will benefit from such changes. Ross spends time exploring "Code" and how the codefication of money and also weapons (computer security) will both benefit and potentially disrupt our international economies. Ross also looks at how data will be "the raw material of the information age." Ross also focuses on globalization and geopolitical economics. He explores how competitiveness and how societies, families and individuals will need to thrive. Ross gives attention to the importance of women stating that "the states and societies that do the most for women are those that will be best positioned to compete and succeed in the industries of the future." The book also touches on how to prepare children for "success in a world of increasing change and competition." Ross discusses the shift of robotics from being manual and repetitive to cognitive and non-repetitive.He believes that breakthroughs in mathematical modeling and cloud robotics (machine learning and Artificial Intelligence) make robotics acceptable. In the book Ross describes how other cultures have different reactions to robotics and he uses Japan's use of robotics in elder-care as an example. He also expects that less developed countries may be able to leapfrog technologies in robotics much like they did with cell and mobile technologies. According to Ross, the last trillion dollar industry was created out of computer code; the next trillion dollar industry will be created out of genome code. In the book Ross describes how genome code is already being used to fix humans from curing cancer to hacking the brain to growing organs. He also describes the difference between the United States investment in genome research with that of China. Ross then turns to the "code-ification" of money, markets and trust. He describes the transition from cash to mobile and online banking. He also discusses the sharing economy from eBay to AirBnB and then gives an overview of BitCoin and blockchain technology. Ross also focuses on cybersecurity and the weaponization of code with a focus on a move from cold war to "code war." Ross states that he expects the total market size of the cyberindustry to reach $175 billion by the end of 2017. In The Industries of the Future, Ross shows us what changes are coming in the next ten years, highlighting the best opportunities for progress and explaining why countries thrive or sputter. He examines the specific fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics, cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the coming impact of digital technology on money and markets. In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: ● How will we adapt to the changing nature of work? ● Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race? ● How can the world's rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley in creating their own innovation hotspots? ● And what can today's parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow? Ross blends story telling and economic analysis to give a vivid and informed perspective on how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live. Incorporating the insights of leaders ranging from tech moguls to defense experts, The Industries of the Future takes the intimidating, complex topics that many of us know to be important and boils them down into clear, plainspoken language. This is an essential book for understanding how the world works--now and tomorrow--and a must-read for businesspeople in every sector, from every country. This is by far the most useful, eye-opening, mind-blowing, and mildly-distressing book I’ve read this year amid the indulgence in fiction. Robots taking care of us, discoveries in genomic technology saving lives, farmers optimizing pastureland through a mobile app, and the countries entering a code war. Suddenly the seemingly far-fetched ideas are not crazy at all, in fact, technological breakthroughs are changing the way the we live while I’m sitting here and being left far behind with little idea of the changes taking place. Fast, informative read from former Innovations advisor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Alec Ross, who discusses five emerging industries that he predicts will dominate the next twenty years. 1. Robotics - "47% of [current] American jobs are at high risk for robot takeover, and another 19% are at medium risk," in the next twenty years. Best anecdote: China's Foxconn has made some of the most aggressive investments in robotics because, according to founder, Terry Gou: "Human beings are also animals, and to manage a million animals gives me a headache." (uh... wow!). 2. Genetics - Genetic medicine is about to become massively commercialized. "The state of genomics today can be likened to that of e-commerce in 1994, the year Amazon was founded."Cancer will be caught much earlier and treated with precision proteins (no more chemo). In next 100 years we will live 50% longer, ~115 years. Also, we can use pigs to grow human organs (no more waiting on line for kidneys), and we can bring back wooly mammoths from the dead. 3. Codified Money - Bitcoin and blockchain. Just give it time. "Blockchain will be to banking what the Internet was to media." It will dis-intermediate gratuitous layers of business and reduce friction. The "layers of business" here are bankers and lawyers who have until now acted as expensive middle men. With Blockchain, those evil 1%-ers can now be replaced by robots as well. 4. Weaponized Code - The wars of the 21st century will be fought with code, using "virtual arms." China is joyfully taking the lead here. They stole about $300 billion worth of IP from the US in 2013 via hacking - the equivalent of all the goods we export to the rest of Asia. "PLA Unit 61398" is considered to be "most advanced and best funded of the 20 cyber-military units in China." Scarier than the cold war because barriers to entry are super low. 5. Big Data - This one sort of underpins all the others and is the most obvious. Who ever owns the data, wins. Big data will give us great things like instant, universal translation (within 10 years so we can all stop making our kids learn Mandarin) but it will also enslave us. I highly recommend this book. Alec Ross worked on technology for Barack Obama's 2008 campaign, and as Senior Advisor for Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton he traveled to 41 countries and met many of the world's most accomplished and influential people. The early part of the book, talking about robotics and AI, genomics, and the coming disruption of financial markets by blockchain and computer science covered familiar ground (a little of which is already out of date). He seemed to hit his stride when he talked about cyberwarfare and cybersecurity, big data and data science, and finally a chapter entitled The Geography of Future Markets, which was intensely interesting to me, overturning many of my presumptions. His ardent support for the importance of women in entrepreneurship, technology, and the development of nations, rich and poor. He demonstrates dramatically that the many countries that have repressive, controlling regimes or which have failed to harness the vitality and energy of young people and women have fallen behind. He ends by seeking the attributes that will lead to successful employment in the coming world. In a world growing more chaotic, Alec Ross is one of those very rare people who can see patterns in the chaos and provide guidance for the road forward. He has an unusual diversity of expertise that allows him to apply multiple lenses to the world's challenges and dream up the kind of innovative solutions that are changing the world.' --Eric Schmidt, Former CEO of Google 'How can we prepare our children and ourselves to succeed in a world of robotics, globalization and digitally driven markets? In this valuable book, Alec Ross analyzes what it will take to survive and even thrive. The future is already hitting us and Ross shows how it can be exciting rather than frightening.' --Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators About the Author Alec Ross is one of America's leading experts on innovation. He served for four years as Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a role created for him by Senator Clinton, which earned him a Distinguished Honor Award from the State Department. He is currently a Senior Fellow at Columbia University's School of International & Public Affairs and serves as an advisor to investors, corporations and government leaders. Ross lives in Baltimore with his wife and their three young children.
