24 Takeaways from "The Fourth Transformation"

#artificialintelligence

The Fourth Transformation, a book about some of the newest, most disruptive technologies, begins with a foreward by social media mogul, Gary Vaynerchuk (better known as @GaryVee), who recalls how people once said they would "never" use Facebook or Snapchat. Observing how the Pokeman Go craze gave us a glimpse of the potential for mass consumer adoption and quick business application of augmented reality, Vaynerchuk, like the authors of the book, urges us to embrace doing the new things we think we would never do! Part 1 focuses on Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). Part 2 examines technological disruption in retail, enterprise, health and learning. Part 3 looks at the "disturbing possibilities" of emerging technologies: loss of privacy, loss of jobs, and an inability to discern the truth from illusion.

Pokemon Go is displayed on a cell phone in Los Angeles on Friday, July 8, 2016. While fans of virtual reality wait for the platform's breakthrough experience, its cousin augmented reality is having its moment -- a cute, brightly colored one that leaves its users with sore feet. Pokémon Go, a mobile game where players catch Pokémon cartoon creatures in the real world, has put augmented reality into the spotlight in a way that the more immersive, high-profile virtual reality has yet to achieve. "It's going to bring (AR) into the consumer domain," says Gartner analyst Brian Blau. Pokémon Go features a GPS-enabled map of the player's real-world surrounding.
