Predicting the future has little value without understanding the driving forces behind the trends, subtle nuances that can be leveraged, and implications for both the people directly affected in the industry as well as others farther down the technological food chain. Frey’s work is not just restricted to advances in technology. Rather, he takes a much larger view of the playing field including shifts in governance, demographics, system changes, evolving attitudes, deviations in the human conditions, and much more.
