The sixth wave of innovation is poised to revolutionize business. Robots, artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things will become part of everyday life. And unlike previous waves, the sixth wave will affect all companies, at every level.
If firms don’t adapt to these technologies, they will die, as competitors switch to them. Although the sixth wave may look daunting, it will present huge opportunities, such as helping firms be customer-focused.
Work will be transformed, not least thanks to the widespread use of robots and autonomous vehicles. But humans will always be required.
