The New York Times bestseller, from leading innovation expert Alec Ross, a “fascinating vision” (Forbes) of what’s next for the world and how to navigate the changes the future will bring. While Alec Ross was working as Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State, he traveled to forty-one countries, exploring the latest advances coming out of every continent. From startup hubs in Kenya to R&D labs in South Korea, Ross has seen what the future holds. In The Industries of the Future, Ross provides a “lucid and informed guide” (Financial Times) to the changes coming in the next ten years. He examines the fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics and artificial intelligence, cybercrime and cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the impact of digital technology on money and markets. In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we have to adapt to the changing nature of work? Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race? How can the world’s rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley with their own innovation hotspots? And what can today’s parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow? Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to show how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live. Sharing insights from global leaders—from the founders of Google and Twitter to defense experts like David Petraeus—Ross reveals the technologies and industries that will drive the next stage of globalization. The Industries of the Future is “a riveting and mind-bending book” (New York Journal of Books), a “must read” (Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach for America) regardless of “whether you follow these fields closely or you still think of Honda as a car rather than a robotics company” (Forbes).

Separation processesâ€"or processes that use physical, chemical, or electrical forces to isolate or concentrate selected constituents of a mixtureâ€"are essential to the chemical, petroleum refining, and materials processing industries. In this volume, an expert panel reviews the separation process needs of seven industries and identifies technologies that hold promise for meeting these needs, as well as key technologies that could enable separations. In addition, the book recommends criteria for the selection of separations research projects for the Department of Energy's Office of Industrial Technology.

Manufacturing process controls include all systems and software that exert control over production processes. Control systems include process sensors, data processing equipment, actuators, networks to connect equipment, and algorithms to relate process variables to product attributes. Since 1995, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Industrial Technology 's (OIT) program management strategy has reflected its commitment to increasing and documenting the commercial impact of OIT programs. OIT's management strategy for research and development has been in transition from a "technology push" strategy to a "market pull" strategy based on the needs of seven energy-and waste-intensive industries-steel, forest products, glass, metal casting, aluminum, chemicals, and petroleum refining. These industries, designated as Industries of the Future (IOF), are the focus of OIT programs. In 1997, agriculture, specifically renewable bioproducts, was added to the IOF group. The National Research Council Panel on Manufacturing Process Controls is part of the Committee on Industrial Technology Assessments (CITA), which was established to evaluate the OIT program strategy, to provide guidance during the transition to the new IOF strategy, and to assess the effects of the change in program strategy on cross-cutting technology programs, that is, technologies applicable to several of the IOF industries. The panel was established to identify key processes and needs for improved manufacturing control technology, especially the needs common to several IOF industries; identify specific research opportunities for addressing these common industry needs; suggest criteria for identifying and prioritizing research and development (R&D) to improve manufacturing controls technologies; and recommend means for implementing advances in control technologies.

The Industries of the Future by Alec Ross | Summary & Analysis Preview: The Industries of sthe Future provides an insider’s perspective on emerging digital industries. Many of these emerging technologies, including robotics, genomics, the codification of money into currencies such as Bitcoin, and the development of Big Data analytics, were once considered science fiction. These technological changes build upon the proliferation of personal computers and telecommunications technology in the late twentieth century. Many of these changes, such as enhanced robotics, will begin altering American lifestyles by the end of the next decade. The economic potential of these industries is such that genomics alone is projected to grow to become an industry that rivals the internet in terms of economic impact. The industries of the future will also present new and unique challenges for cybersecurity… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

The internet changed everything. With its inception every industry has changed. The exchange of knowledge and data became dirt cheap. What once took several people to do, now takes a computer and in a fraction of the time. At first the internet did not seem to pose a threat to most jobs, but it has clearly done so. Alec Ross, in his book "The Industries of the Future" he discusses how technology has completely changed several industries both for the better and for the worse. In this volume of Summary Shorts, we will analyze, discuss and summarize the core concepts of "The Industries of the Future" by Alec Ross.

Excerpt from The Industries of San Francisco: Her Rank, Resources, Advantages, Trade, Commerce Manufactures, Conditions of the Past, Present and Future, Representative Industrial Institutions, Historical, Descriptive, and Statistical Considered according to size and population, the ten leading cities of the United States rank as follows: New York, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, Baltimore, Cincinnati, San Francisco, and New Orleans. The four great sea-ports are New York, Boston, Baltimore, and San Francisco. The youngest, and in many respects the most remarkable of all these great cities is San Francisco, the metropolis of California, and The Athens Of The Pacific Coast. It is picturesquely situated on the western shore of the Bay of San Francisco, whence it derives its name, at the base of high hills, in a plain gently inclined toward the bay. The city is about six miles in width and occupies the northern end of a peninsula, thirty miles in length, with the Bay of San Francisco on the east, and the Pacific Ocean on the west. Built on a sandy soil, the city is regularly laid out, and the streets cross one another, with few exceptions, at right angles. Formerly there was a cove a mile wide in front of the city, and extending half a mile into the land. Clark's Point was on the northern side of this cove; Rincon Point, on the southern side. The water along the front line of the cove was forty feet deep, and around its edges were mud flats, which were bare at low tide. The sand ridges have since been cut away, the hills cut down, and the cove filled with earth, and where large ships rode at anchor in early times, are now paved streets. Telegraph Hill, 294 feet high, lies in the northeast corner of the city, and Rincon Hill, 120 feet high, in the southeast corner. Russian Hill, 360 feet in height, is situated in the western section of the city, which lies mainly within the amphitheater formed by these hills. The history of San Francisco is replete with incidents romantic and dramatic. It begins with the settlement by the Spanish of the obscure village of Yerba Buena (good herb), in 1835, under which name it was known until January 30, 1847, when it was changed by an act of the Ayuntamiento, or town council, to San Francisco.

New competitive realities have ruptured industry boundaries, overthrown much of standard management practice, and rendered conventional models of strategy and growth obsolete. In their stead have come the powerful ideas and methodologies of Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad, whose much-revered thinking has already engendered a new language of strategy. In this book, they develop a coherent model for how today's executives can identify and accomplish no less than heroic goals in tomorrow's marketplace. Their masterful blueprint addresses how executives can ease the tension between competing today and clearing a path toward leadership in the future.
