    Summary

    Information systems have changed how we work, play, and learn since the internet was introduced to the mass. We may be at a tipping point now with many significant advances of technologies that have been in research for many decades and are converged roughly at the same time as described in the above trends.

    The adoption of many technologies has also been accelerated due to the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic. Organizations will need to determine how they want to move forward to leverage opportunities and manage risks should any of the above trends become a reality.

    As the world of information technology moves forward, we will be constantly challenged by new capabilities and innovations that will both amaze and disgust us. As we learned in chapter 12, many times, the new capabilities and powers that come with these new technologies will test us and require a new way of thinking about the world. Businesses and individuals alike need to be aware of these coming changes and prepare for them.
