​Disruptive technologies are the largest drivers of change in business today. In fact, technology is shifting so fast that organizations such as Samsung, Ford, and NATO are enlisting science fiction writers to help them visualize the future and consider opportunities for innovation.

Meanwhile, the combination of connected sensors, massive data gathering, and machine learning is driving unprecedented changes at home and work, with Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Nest becoming standard fixtures. In addition, robots are maturing in both their accuracy and their interactions with humans, creating new applications from remote surgery to autonomous aircraft navigation.
