“Digital Destiny: How the New Age of Data Will Transform the Way We Work, Live, and Communicate”
In his new book, Shawn DuBravac, chief economist and senior director of research at the Consumer Electronics Association, a trade association representing the consumer electronics industry, argues that the new wave of innovations associated with the Internet of Things is creating a society-altering revolution on par with the spread of electricity. In the book, DuBravac explains how vast quantities of data will drive a new generation of useful consumer technologies, save hundreds of thousands of people from fatal automobile accidents, redefine how cities operate, and even offer solutions to serious challenges like hunger and disease. DuBravac’s book serves as a counter to those that lament new technologies and argues that a connected, data-driven future is very bright.
