The New Digital Age : Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business

The New Digital Age is the product of an unparalleled collaboration: full of the brilliant insights of one of Silicon Valley's great innovators - what Bill Gates was to Microsoft and Steve Jobs was to Apple, Schmidt (along with Larry Page and Sergey Brin) was to Google - and the Director of Google Ideas, Jared Cohen, formerly an advisor to both Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. Never before has the future been so vividly and transparently imagined. From technologies that will change lives (information systems that greatly increase productivity, safety and our quality of life, thought-controlled motion technology that can revolutionise medical procedures, and near-perfect translation technology that allows us to have more diversified interactions) to our most important future considerations (curating our online identity and fighting those who would do harm with it) to the widespread political change that will transform the globe (through transformations in conflict, increasingly active and global citizenries, a new wave of cyber-terrorism and states operating simultaneously in the physical and virtual realms) to the ever present threats to our privacy and security, Schmidt and Cohen outline in great detail and scope all the promise and peril awaiting us in the coming decades.

  • "Il presidente esecutivo di Google Eric Schmidt e il direttore di Google Ideas Jared Cohen condividono la loro visione e il loro pensiero su alcune delle questioni più calde del futuro tecnologico globale. Chi avrà più potere domani, i cittadini o lo Stato? La tecnologia faciliterà il terrorismo o lo ostacolerà? Qual è la relazione tra privacy e sicurezza, e a quanta riservatezza dovremo rinunciare per essere parte della nuova era? In che modo cambiano la guerra, la diplomazia, la rivoluzione e l'economia quando tutti sono connessi? Pragmatico e a un tempo fonte di ispirazione, il libro delinea con precisione le promesse e i pericoli che ci attendono nei prossimi decenni ed è una lettura imprescindibile per capire dove sta andando il mondo e come cambierà la vita delle persone, delle imprese e degli Stati."
  • "This book details how the digital age will affect our world. From two leading thinkers, this is the widely anticipated book that describes a new, hugely connected world of the future, full of challenges and benefits which are ours to meet and harness."
  • "In an unparalleled collaboration, two leading global thinkers in technology and foreign affairs give us their widely anticipated, transformational vision of the future: a world where everyone is connected--a world full of challenges and benefits that are ours to meet and to harness. Eric Schmidt is one of Silicon Valley's great leaders, having taken Google from a small startup to one of the world's most influential companies. Jared Cohen is the director of Google Ideas and a former adviser to secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. With their combined knowledge and experiences, the authors are uniquely positioned to take on some of the toughest questions about our future: Who will be more powerful in the future, the citizen or the state? Will technology make terrorism easier or harder to carry out? What is the relationship between privacy and security, and how much will we have to give up to be part of the new digital age? In this groundbreaking book, Schmidt and Cohen combine observation and insight to outline the promise and peril awaiting us in the coming decades. At once pragmatic and inspirational, this is a forward-thinking account of where our world is headed and what this means for people, states and businesses. With the confidence and clarity of visionaries, Schmidt and Cohen illustrate just how much we have to look forward to--and beware of--as the greatest information and technology revolution in human history continues to evolve. On individual, community and state levels, across every geographical and socioeconomic spectrum, they reveal the dramatic developments--good and bad--that will transform both our everyday lives and our understanding of self and society, as technology advances and our virtual identities become more and more fundamentally real. As Schmidt and Cohen's nuanced vision of the near future unfolds, an urban professional takes his driverless car to work, attends meetings via hologram and dispenses housekeeping robots by voice; a Congolese fisherwoman uses her smart phone to monitor market demand and coordinate sales (saving on costly refrigeration and preventing overfishing); the potential arises for "virtual statehood "and "Internet asylum "to liberate political dissidents and oppressed minorities, but also for tech-savvy autocracies (and perhaps democracies) to exploit their citizens' mobile devices for ever more ubiquitous surveillance. Along the way, we meet a cadre of international figures--including Julian Assange--who explain their own visions of our technology-saturated future. Inspiring, provocative and absorbing, The New Digital Age From the Hardcover edition."
