About the Book

When Hans J. Ornig realized that he didn’t understand the newest technologies and how they were disrupting the world, he quit his job so he could study the problem.

At the time, he did not appreciate how sciences like nanotechnology, biochemistry, genomics, synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, robotics, and additive manufacturing were converging to lead us into a new technological evolution.

He’d go on to read numerous books, reports, and scientific papers on technology– and he also attended Singularity University. The whole idea was to understand why technology mattered and how to leverage it to his advantage.

He shares what he learned in this book so that others won’t be left behind by technology. By examining and explaining exponential technologies in simple terms, he acknowledges what it means to be human, our values, our limitations, our social connectedness, and where individuals fit in a global context.

When you seek to understand the newest technologies, you’ll be taking an important step in taking ownership of your life. Help yourself and move the world toward collective wisdom with the insights in Leading into the Future.
