We’re rapidly approaching the era of abundant knowledge and radical transparency.
By 2020, it’s estimated we’ll have 50 billion connected devices, which will generate over 600 zettabytes of information. So far, sensors on phones have doubled every four years. This means we can expect 160 sensors per mobile device by 2027, and a world jam-packed with near 100 trillion sensors.
The bottom line is, we are heading towards a future where you can know anything you want, any time you want, anywhere you want. In this future, it’s not “what you know,” but rather “the quality of the questions you ask” that will be most important.MORE COMMENT
