The Great Transformation and the Hype Cycle.  How Technologies Will Change Our World and Our Lives.

The idea of the Great Transformation is based on a wave of new technologies which are all emerging at the same time.  Many of these technologies are not yet well understood.  We will tackle a range of these technologies including Blockchain, Augmented Reality, 5G, IoT, and others and examine a) what they are, b) how they impact processes and businesses, and c) what the likely outlook for each technology is.
