The “sharing economy” was envisioned nearly 100 years ago

Sharing economy grew at 22% in 2016, up to 12.6 million users and was predicted to grow to 14.5 million in 2018. These figures need to be increased by the addition of online shopping data from such websites as Pinterest and eBay, which are used by a self-declared 50% of the adult population.

Blended worlds. Welcome to augmented reality

It would be a mistake to reduce augmented reality to mere entertainment value. In the near future, AR may support production and marketing, and soon reveal its innovative potential in architecture and industry.

Who will gain, and who will lose in the digital revolution?

By 2030, the digital revolution will push 75 million to 375 million workers around the world out of their current jobs. However, while many occupations will disappear from the employment landscape forever, many new professions will take their place. What skills will be in demand in the future?

When will we cease to be biological people?

Artificial Intelligence is a great promise to many of us. Better, easier, longer life. Maybe even something more. Perhaps soon we will see a race aimed at increasing the overall human intelligence at the level of entire countries.

About me

Why a blog?

The Internet and new technologies are bound to continue to change our lives ever more profoundly. I have long dealt with technologies, leading technology companies and experts in the field.
