The way humans think is changing forever

We're in the midst of an industrial revolution of data, the result of new data processing technologies, ubiquitous computing, and next-generation interfaces. We can mine petabytes of information, filter millions of messages, and link disparate databases in the blink of an eye. We're harvesting billions of mouse clicks, credit card swipes, and GPS coordinates. The resulting data is available to companies, governments, and citizens.

But these massive, open data sets are just the beginning. With ubiquitous computing, they're available to anyone, anywhere. And modern, immersive, interactive interfaces — from touchscreens to 3D worlds to augmented reality — make them immediately accessible. We're transforming the very fabric of human knowledge: how we learn, play, work, and love.

Tomorrow's world will be a layered one, where we augment our every thought with context, skimming over data and diving deep into knowledge. We'll immerse ourselves in the strata of our lives, and we'll never be the same.
