“Computational biology. 3-D printing. Autonomous vehicles.” In this video, which is the first in a series of interviews by McKinsey & Company, Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, looks into the future at technologies that will change business models and lives.

Eric Schmidt and Jaren Cohen, director of Google Ideas and adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations have just released The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business, which is receiving lots of press and mostly positive reviews. The book “is a forward-thinking account of where our world is headed and what this means for people, states and businesses.” Here are links to a couple of the reviews:
