白宮科技創新顧問專業剖析,教你搶進未來二十年關鍵產業 
下一波藍海在哪裡?全球各行各業該如何因應? 
今日的父母如何為孩子的未來預作準備? 
 
上一波由數位領頭的全球化與創新浪潮,幫助低勞動成本地區超過十億人口脫離貧窮;下一波,將使最先驅產業晉升主流,卻也嚴重挑戰全球中產階級的經濟地位! 

機器人、尖端生命科技、金融程式編碼化、網路安全,以及大數據,是推動未來二十年全球經濟社會變遷的關鍵產業。我們如何在這一波創新浪潮中找到方向?如何適應工作本質的變化?網路戰爭的可能會激發下一次軍備競賽嗎?新興國家如何創建自己的創新熱點,以迎頭趕上矽谷的成就?今天的父母如何協助孩子為未來做好準備? 

創新專家亞歷克.羅斯當年以年輕的新媒體公司創辦人之姿,出任歐巴馬網路選戰的幕僚,後來獲國務卿希拉蕊.柯林頓延攬,特別為他增設資深創新顧問一職,落實以社群媒體推廣外交的方針,是深刻了解數位時代脈動的佼佼者。 

任職國務院期間,他造訪全球四十一國,從剛果難民營到敘利亞戰區,從沒有銀行卻發展金融工具的非洲國家,到南韓的機器人研發實驗室,見證紐西蘭提升農產量的雷射科技,烏克蘭大學生將手語轉換成語音的努力,更加洞悉未來的樣貌。 

羅斯結合敘事與經濟學分析,融入從科技巨擘到軍事專家等各領域頂尖者的洞見,透過清晰、平易近人的語言解析複雜的主題,提供生動而有知識根據的觀點。本書是一部了解現今與未來世界運作方式的重要著作,是各國各產業的商業人士必讀之作。 

The New York Times bestseller, from leading innovation expert Alec Ross, a “fascinating vision” (Forbes) of what’s next for the world and how to navigate the changes the future will bring.

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.

In The Industries of the Future, Ross provides a “lucid and informed guide” (Financial Times) to the changes coming in the next ten years. He examines the fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics and artificial intelligence, cybercrime and cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the impact of digital technology on money and markets. In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we have to 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 with their own innovation hotspots? And what can today’s parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow?

Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to show how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live. Sharing insights from global leaders—from the founders of Google and Twitter to defense experts like David Petraeus—Ross reveals the technologies and industries that will drive the next stage of globalization. The Industries of the Future is “a riveting and mind-bending book” (New York Journal of Books), a “must read” (Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach for America) regardless of “whether you follow these fields closely or you still think of Honda as a car rather than a robotics company” (Forbes).
