Publisher's Summary

As machines become capable of doing most of the work people have performed for centuries, we are headed for a massive social reorganization. 

Nanotech is at the point where it's possible to unleash invisible robots and new materials into the world that permanently alter life on Earth. With genetic engineering, we have taken evolution into our own hands, creating new species of plants and animals that never existed before. We're developing AIs that can predict future events, create lifelike simulations, and learn from their own mistakes. And space technology is advancing toward the point where visiting other planets and discovering alien life forms will no longer be the stuff of science fiction. 

In The Five Forces That Change Everything, Steve Hoffman, venture capitalist and CEO of Founders Space, takes you on a journey to see what the most brilliant minds of our age are dreaming up. Hoffman reveals how new scientific breakthroughs and business ventures are poised to reshape our lives and turn science fiction into fact. From Silicon Valley biohackers boosting their IQs to scientists in Japan creating lifelike robots, and Chinese labs developing human-monkey chimeras, Hoffman gives an inside look at the limits of what's possible and the impact these developments will have.

Excellent Overview

For readers not too deep in the technology world, Steve’s books is an excellent overview and guide to what’s coming for our future based on what’s already in our present day! I only wished he had covered a critical technology that will serve as a core foundation for the other technologies presented in this book to flourish, blockchain. After all, everything is data and unless we fix how data is owned, lent, protected, consented and monetized, we can expect to live in a dystopian world.
