- The continuous acceleration of specific computation technologies occurring in areas such as Infinite Computing, Networks/Sensors, Artificial Intelligence, Digital Manufacturing and Synthetic Biology.
- The convergence of these technologies - the intersection of Networks, AI and 3D printing - will soon allow anyone to describe their thoughts. Every one of us, with or without skills, becomes a master designer and manufacturer.
- The number of digitally connected people on Earth will grow from 2 billion in 2010 to at least 5 billion by 2020. What will that enable? what will they build?
- The rate of innovation on Earth increases as a direct effect of people concentrating in cities. The proportion of urban dwellers globally crossed the 50% threshold for the first time in human history 5 years ago. Soon, the global mind of 5 billion connected people will drive the most rapid iteration of technology ever seen.
