Two new books investigate the impact of rapidly advancing technology.

Historian of science The term “general purpose technology” is used to differentiate between useful inventions like dental floss and “general purpose technology” like electricity, which powers everything from factories to street lights to televisions. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries’ industrial revolutions, these new inventions and the gadgets they inspired were developed at breakneck speed. A new stage of development, on the other hand, has begun. Rather than increasing linearly, the rate of advancement for many technologies is increasing exponentially. This has a broader impact than simply accelerating innovation. As a result, businesses, governments, and society are all facing significant challenges.

“The indexing epoch”

 Azeem Azhar contributed to this book. 352 pages, a plot twist, and all for $ 28.99. In the United Kingdom, however, the term ‘exponential’ was used. A fee of £20 for a completely unrelated business.

“Humanity’s final frontier”

This book was written by Michael Basker. Price: $29.95 for 432 pages (MIT Press). 20 pound Bridge Street Press

“Scalability master”

 Reid Hoffman of Delon Truffle and June Cohen of Delon Truffle. The price is $28 and pages are 304.

According to three recent books, industrial-era thinking still dominates many Western institutions. There are compelling reasons to believe that this is the case. Exponential growth, in which things double or triple (or even more) in each increment, is less familiar to the general public than linear growth, in which things change or are added gradually. If you take 25 one-metre-long steps, you’ve moved 25 metres. While this is true, as the number of steps increases exponentially, the seventh step covers a football field while the 25th step is 33 metres, or nearly the entire Earth. It wraps all the way around the ring.

Even though exponential growth appears to be boring at first, it quickly transforms into something quite dramatic. According to Azeem Azhar, the world is undergoing a massive change. He claims that Moore’s Law, which states that computer chip power (as measured by the number of transistors) doubles every two years without increasing costs, has long been followed by computer technology. According to Azhar, the exponential growth of other technologies is now a hallmark of digitalization and artificial intelligence advancements (“AI”). For example, there are solar cells and batteries, genome editing, augmented reality, electric cars, and urban agriculture, as well as online false alarms, cybercrime, and war. 3.NS Manufacturing is an example of an online business.
