Is the world of artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and 5G converging with our everyday lives and workplaces sooner than anticipated?

Business as usual is over. The age of hyper-change is upon us and technology is at the forefront. Since the dawn of the microchip, exponential growth has defined modern technology. Today, entire industries are being upended by software, sensors, cameras, LiDAR, processors, and optics - all growing smaller by the day. Tech is pushing into every corner of our world, and businesses that ignore the disruption do so at their own peril. The end of the mobile phone is near and the age of hyperconnectivity is here with AR glasses, the intelligent edge, and IoT.

Led by globally-recognized futurist Cathy Hackl and award-winning emerging tech leader John Buzzell, this book will arm you with frameworks and examples to tackle the rapid disruption happening in every industry. This book is for business leaders that want to learn more about 5G, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and other emerging tech. We’ll explain how you can wield this new tech for scale and revenue growth. We’ve seen the effects of this technology on the workforce firsthand, success and failure. Along the way, you’ll hear real-life examples from business leaders and ourselves: industry experts in technology years in the making. By the end, you’ll be seeing the world through AR glasses, AI applications and at the speed of 5G.
