I DO NOT LIKE THE TERM “ENTREPRENEUR “ NOR THE ADJECTIVE “DISRUPTIVE” . NOT BECAUSE THEY ENJOY SENSE AND RELEVANCE BUT BECAUSE, INTO FASHION, ITS ESSENCE IS BLURRED.
MORE CLEAR, STRAIGHTFORWARD AND CONSISTENT WITH THE TIMES WE LIVE IN TODAY AND, ABOVE ALL, THAT THOSE WHO COME TO US, WE HAVE ANOTHER SERIES OF QUALIFIERS SUCH AS “ADVENTUROUS”, “CREATOR”, “INCLUSIVE”, “PASSIONATE” AND “MAVERICK” WHO HAVE TO TAKE CENTER STAGE, ALONG WITH THE ABILITY TO SACRIFICE AND SPIRIT OF OVERCOMING.
It is, today, to approach the rebellion , to move forward to transform and produce changes . All people carry within themselves an enormous potential engine capable of creating prosperity.
But that potential has been historically conditioned, especially where they lived, the environment, origin, Education. We know that there has always been more favorable than others to develop that talent.
What has changed? We have described many times: the hyper and unstoppable technological progress is leading to changes in the social, economic, legal, business, cultural, energy, health, education and environmental socially.
In short, there will be a new world order will generate immense opportunities but also threats. And we must be prepared for both.
Thomas Friedman already advanced in his time through his book The World is Flat . He said that the combination of hyper-connectivity and globalization of the economy flattens the playing field where businesses and people around the world can compete, regardless of geography.
Today almost everyone lives hooked to the network, being aware of the informationimmediately through various channels. 98% of the world’s population has mobile and 40% access to Internet . In emerging and developing countries , with new smartphones will have access exponentially in the coming years.
The world is a social network where prevailing new ways to communicate and influence.
The ICT and connectivity will take another big leap in the way we relate and communicate: the digital world and the cloud is the next step.
A digital world
The digital world is the world of tomorrow . The data traffic is growing exponentially and thevideo will be one of the major players in the coming years: CV in video, virtual workspaces between people from different continents and form sensory videoconferencing , will make the need to travel Professional experience a significant reduction reasons.
The devices wearable be ever closer to our body clocks, clothing and bracelets that control technology, communicate to us and care for us.
IoT (Internet of Things) : the different devices are connected, adopting wireless Internet and intelligence. The washer will be able to order from the soap when it detects that you are running out and the refrigerator will be able to order the purchase. Intelligent traffic management and transport will be made to optimize costs and service improvements, garbage services will be improved and the consumption of water, light and electricity and the care of hospital patients will experience significant changes.
Another area of development will be the clouds , needed to store the vast amounts of data, which give rise to the processing and analysis systems to help us make better decisions. Large companies such as Cisco and Huawei, are investing many millions in the clouds.
With the advancement of technology, translated into the scanning continues, the geographical barriers disappear and help reduce the gap in social desigualad. The individual anywhere in the world is the protagonist.
The technological advancement OGIC
The technological progress is not linear, but exponential. The smart mobile devices, clouds and 3D printers are a reality that will continue to advance and develop. Up to now being the protagonists of this era, but the next will be more exciting.
The biotechnology, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology begin to be protagonists the next few years.
Biotechnology not only allow us to read our DNA, so we can prevent and cure many diseases, but also be able to create synthetic organs. Today there is already manufacturing parts and prostheses with 3D printers and smart auto repair special materials, used in the shipping industry.
Artificial intelligence and robotics will be a reality sooner than you think. In both businesses and homes, we have robots to help us in our work. And I do not just mean the automated process of car production lines and warehouses for storage and distribution. They have adapted to the environment and learning ability.
The artificial intelligence will transform phones and computers, cars and television. They generalize the driverless cars and drones and robots will function in factories, nursing the sick, public services or helping at home. And all this will be much sooner than we think.
Nanotechnology will be able to detect and combat diseases and create smart materials that are cheaper and more effective uses in computer science and in industry.
As always, the technology must be feasible in terms of their applications and profitable for their developers. But also it must have the support and adequate support from the political and legislative spheres. If technology is the optimum point of profitability, progress will depend on the legislative and institutional audacity.
