The world is at the precipice of one of the most dramatic shifts in history: the transition from an industrial society driven by finite natural resources to one that is based on the near infinite abundance of data. With unimagined increases in data capture and storage a new kind of value is emerging that has the power to profoundly transform our lives, our economy, and our businesses—from personalized medicine and autonomous vehicles, to loyal brands that know what you need before you know to ask for it. In this very near future, every person and digital device will have its own digital-self—a digital twin which knows more about us than we know about ourselves. And each one of these digital twins will require ten times as much digital data as exits in the world today! Your digital-self will be one of your most valuable assets, requiring radical new technologies and approaches for how you own, protect, and share your digital behaviors. Yet, the promise of AI may be delayed by decades without a new way of thinking about data—how we accumulate it, save it, and pay for it; welcome to The Bottomless Cloud, a radical new way to look at the economics and the value of digital data. Fascinating, engaging, and incredibly timely, The Bottomless Cloud provides a front row seat to the future of how we will live, work, and play in the 21st Century.
