Several of this year’s trends represent fascinating combinations of macro forces and other technology advances.

“Advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning are arguably the most powerful general-purpose technologies invented since the dawn of modern computing. Extracting value from these is an imperative for business and society.

“Machine learning, the latest incarnation of artificial intelligence (AI), works by detecting complex patterns in past data and using them to predict future data. Since almost all business decisions ultimately rely on predictions (about profits, employee performance, costs, regulation etc.) it would seem obvious that machine learning (ML) could be useful whenever “big” data are available to support business decisions. But that isn’t quite right.”

“In the busy rush of our lives, it can be hard to stop and take stock of where we are and how we’re doing. All too often, we snatch snippets of information as we dash from one thing to another, we grab the news in bite-sized headlines, and we hastily check what’s happening through our Twitter or other social media feeds. This diet of half-truths, overblown opinion, and gossip leaves us with a sense of doom and gloom. If we are to believe what we hear, then a triple-whammy of disasters is going to send us hurtling to hell in a handcart: secular stagnation will rob us of the opportunity to grow, digital technology will make us redundant, and climate change will wipe us out.”
