To quote Frank Diana in this series: "Artificial intelligence takes the knowledge explosion to its pinnacle. Combined with machines and biotechnology, this tipping point is poised to alter yet again what it means to be human" (from "The Growth of Knowledge"). Diana is a recognised futurist, thought leader and frequent keynote speaker. He has served in various executive roles throughout his career and has over 30 years of leadership experience. His underlying premise in this series of articles is that we are rushing towards the Third Tipping Point (or the Fourth Age) in human history.
