The Inevitable

Kevin Kelly

Overview: Kevin Kelly is the founding Editor of Wired Magazine and has been at the forefront of discussing key and emerging issues relating to technologies, their influence on society, and future applications. The Inevitable is a must read for anyone trying to identify, understand, and embrace technological innovations that WILL shape our future. In optimistically identifying the 12 forces that will bring innovation and drive trends, Kelly touches on topics such as artificial intelligence, big data, robots, virtual reality and visualization. These should all be familiar areas of interest to many in a military audience, yet, and probably most importantly, this book argues that we are at the beginning of the journey, and in 30 years, those that follow in our footsteps will look back in envy at what we were able to create and the complex problems we were able to overcome.
