Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Dertouzos has been an insightful commentator and an active participant in the creation of the Information Age.Now, in What Will Be, he offers a thought-provoking and entertaining vision of the world of the next decade — and of the next century. Dertouzos examines the impact that the following new technologies and challenges will have on our lives as the Information Revolution progresses:

  • all the music, film and text ever produced will be available on-demand in our own homes
  • your "bodynet" will let you make phone calls, check email and pay bills as you walk down the street
  • advances in telecommunication will radically alter the role of face-to-face contact in our lives
  • global disparities in infrastructure will widen the gap between rich and poor
  • surgical mini-robots and online care will change the practice of medicine as we know it.

Detailed, accessible and visionary, What Will Be  is essential for Information Age revolutionaries and technological neophytes alike.

Synopsis:

In this national bestseller, the head of MIT's Laboratory for Computer Science offers clearheaded insights and predictions based on his 25 years of experience at the forefront of computer technology".An engaging and visionary guide to the future".--Bill Gates.

About the Author

Tech oracle Michael Dertouzos (1937-2001) was head of the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science and author of the bestselling Made in America. He offered a learned, accessible, and fascinatingly detailed preview of new information technology and the ways it will remake our society, culture, economy, and private lives. What Will Be is the first thorough roadmap to the world of the technological future. In The Unfinished Revolution he argues passionately for making computers more "humancentric" and easier to use, like cars or simple electronic appliances.
