Following on from the Industrial or Machine Age, the Space Age and the Digital Age, the Augmented Age will be based on four key disruptive themes – Artificial Intelligence, Experience Design, Smart Infrastructure, and HealthTech. Historically the previous ‘ages’ bought significant disruption and changes, but on a net basis the jobs were created, wealth was enhanced, and the health and security of society improved. What will the Augmented Age bring? Will robots take our jobs, and AI’s subsume us as inferior intelligences, or will this usher in a new age of abundance? The Augmented age is about the potential of our future, but more than that, it is about how you will live your life in a world that will change more in the next 20 years than it has in the last 250 years. Are you ready to adapt? Because if history proves anything, you won't have much of a choice.

About the Book: Augmented: Life in the Smart Lane
Augmented: Life in the Smart Lane is about the world that is coming, the changes society will adapt to, and most importantly, it is about the journey that each of us individually will take to arrive to that future. Four major disruptions- Artificial Intelligence, Everywhere Experiences, Health-tech & Gene Editing, and Smart Infrastructure- will usher in the Augmented Age, and change every aspect of our lives, from our daily routines to our relationships.
