How ‘deep tech’ revolution will change things

Deep tech investor Guy Perelmuter explains how new technologies are enabling ideas once confined to science fiction, effectively building the future of the world economy, one technology at a time.

He shares 5 key insights from his new book, Present Future: Business, Science, and the Deep Tech Revolution. Which contains 5 keys ;

1. History Has Always Been Driven By Technology.

The entire history of civilization is all about change—and, more than that, about technological change. Change is coming faster and faster, and will likely accelerate even more. There are many technologies that will shape our world for decades to come, and because of the lightning-fast pace of their adoption, there seems to be confusion about what these technologies are and how they work.Present Future is for anyone interested in understanding the technologies that are shaping industries, governments, and societies around the world.

2. The Deep Tech Revolution.

Deep tech is where science meets technology. It’s where PhDs and subject matter experts can apply their knowledge and transform it from intellectual achievements into systems, devices, prototypes, products, and methodologies. Deep tech companies are effectively building the future of the world economy, one technology at a time: robotics, biotech, nanotech, artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, energy, aerospace, agro-tech—the list goes on and on.

3. Learn From The Past.

“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes,” said Mark Twain, explaining how we can use the past to try anticipating the future. If we can look to the past to see our future, then we will witness extraordinary changes over the next few decades. The future has always been present in our lives because pretty much everything we live with today was once a part of someone else’s vision of tomorrow. Even more new jobs, careers, companies, and empires will be created. Others will disappear or evolve into something completely different. The rate at which the world is going to experience these transformations is accelerating rapidly. The challenges we will face in this rapidly changing world are enormous, and no industry will get through this evolution without significant changes.

4. Understand The Present And Explore The Future.

New technologies are enabling ideas once confined to science fiction to gradually build a more present future: integration between artificial and biological systems, learning techniques for communication between machines and their parts, and the extension of physical reality into virtual reality. The unprecedented speed and depth of this revolution stems from an auspicious confluence of factors: the increase in computer systems’ processing power, the falling cost of data storage units, the decreased size of equipment and sensors, and the evolution of algorithms.

5. Spot The Inevitabilities.

Ever since the First Industrial Revolution (which began in the mid-1700s with the popularization of the steam engine), society has been increasing its demand for energy, thus raising pollution levels. Studies carried out by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have indicated a rise in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere on the order of 40% over the past 250 years, mostly owing to the combustion of fossil fuels. That is one of the primary causes of the greenhouse effect, which has been increasing the planet’s temperature with potentially devastating effects on biodiversity and the very future of humanity.

Changes happen constantly, before our eyes. We don’t notice the growth of our children because we see them every day, but it only takes someone who doesn’t see us regularly to say, “They’ve grown so much!” and we are reminded of the relentless march of time. It is essential that we maintain a critical perspective and keep an eye on the developments of the exponential changes underway. These are essential abilities for us humans, who are surrounded by our own works—The future is not only present. It is a present. Use it wisely!
