The next industrial revolution

  1. 1. The next industrial revolution? Peter Cochrane www.ca-global.org COCHRANE a s s o c i a t e s
  2. 2. A prequel !
  3. 3. Not so long ago....unbelievable constraints !
  4. 4. Not so long ago....unbelievable constraints !
  5. 5. An amazing confluence....all the technologies available in the same timeframe!
  6. 6. Everybody is now on line... The digital divide has gone...hardware and access costs are no longer an issue....and nor is software!
  7. 7. >5Bn people have mobiles & >50% are internet ready!
  8. 8. Soon it will be everything! >5Bn people have mobiles & >50% are internet ready!
  9. 9. ~20 years of living on line… …and now entering the workforce… -Any platform - Any device - Any OS - Any Application - An entirely different expectation!

  11. 11. For young people, joining a company is like being catapulted back in time... Networked Cool Apps Why isn’t working at Unlimited storage Processing Power the office the same Bandwidth as working at home? Fixed & mobile Open, sharing Influential
  12. 12. IT Dept’s can no longer cope ...or compete !
  13. 13. Creativity is now at the edge, out of control, open, & distributed...
  14. 14. The most important hot spot.... Commerce People & & Governance Society Science & Technology
  15. 15. The most important hot spot.... Commerce People & & Governance Society Science & Technology
  16. 16. The most important hot spot.... Commerce People & & Governance Society Science & This where the action Technology always is – and ‘we’ are the primary impediment of change
  17. 17. How the previous industrial revolution is still perceived....
  18. 18. How the previous industrial revolution is still perceived....
  19. 19. The reality today.... Machines produce everything....and without them we would all die...
  20. 20. The reality today.... Machines produce everything....and without them we would all die...
  21. 21. We have to stand on the shoulders of what went before....but it was a ‘food to waste’ cycle This is unsustainable in the long, and perhaps even the short, term - and growth always has limits !
  22. 22. Mother Nature on the other hand....has created sustainable ‘food to waste to food’ cycles This eco-system model is now one we have to aspire to…to live symbiotically with our planet !
  23. 23. How ?
  24. 24. A new all encompassing approach.... Nano Bio IT + AI
  25. 25. A new all encompassing approach.... Nano Bio IT + AI
  26. 26. A new all encompassing approach.... Nano Bio IT + This will give rise to new AI materials, medicines, capabilities and greater understanding
