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?
From robotics to cybersecurity to the coming impact of digital technology on money and markets, the next 10 years will be full of advances and stumbling blocks that will affect our economic future. As the former senior advisor for innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Alec Ross has seen what the future holds and is able to boil down these complex and intimidating topics into clear, plainspoken language.
Alec Ross is visiting distinguished fellow at Johns Hopkins University and the author of The Industries of the Future. He has been named one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy magazine and he received the U.S. Department of State Distinguished Honor Award.
