Futurist Thomas Koulopoulos‘ new book, “Revealing the Invisible: How Our Hidden Behaviors Are Becoming the Most Valuable Commodity of the 21st Century” just made #1 New Release in both Consumer Behavior and Information Management!
“The intersection between behavior and technology is precisely where AI resides.
Far too many conversations about AI go down the technology rabbit hole, making any hope of understanding AI nearly impossible. All that’s left is the typical technobabble or, worse yet, apocalyptic fear mongering. On the other side of the conversation you have the pollyannaish promises we’ve been hearing for decades.
We seem stuck somewhere between The Borg and the Jetsons’ Maid Rosie!
It’s about time we made AI understandable and believable!
Tom’s Revealing The Invisible takes the high road by describing a world in which human behaviors and those of the intelligent machines we are creating will collaborate to create an amazing future for 10 billion people”
