A Breakthrough Introduction to The Next Phase of the Digital Age

In Trivergence, Bob Tapscott, writer, speaker, complex system designer, and former CIO introduces an exciting new concept in explaining how the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will transform business and society. He explains the synergies between these technologies and the disruptive potential that they will offer, as well as the challenges and risks to making it happen. He offers an insightful guide through the difficult decisions that businesses and society must make to thrive in a new era where decisions will be difficult, and uncertainties abound.

You'll discover how and why AI's power is now exploding, its growth driven by smarter approaches to neural networks trained on a new hardware architecture that can derive its intelligence from ever more massive datasets. You'll also find:

  • Discussions of the multiplicative and exponential power of trivergence on the core technologies discussed in the book
  • Explorations of IoT's tendency to bring the physical world to life as it harnesses the capabilities of AI and the blockchain
  • How trivergence morphs Big Data into something new he calls "Infinite Data", where thinking machines consider trillions of data points to generate their own content, value, and perspectives without programmed code or human intervention

A fresh and innovative guide, rich with case stories, on how the most critical technologies of this new phase in the digital age are combining to drive business transformation, Trivergence will become a critical handbook for forward-looking leaders, and anyone interested in the intersection of cutting-edge tech and business.
