Thriving in the Age of Mind Boggling Change
“Change is the Only Constant” said Heraclitus of Ephesus two and a half millennia ago. While change has been the constant throughout human history, the rate of change seems to be accelerating exponentially.
Change, and the need to adapt to “Mind Boggling Change” was a key theme at QAD Explore 2017 in Detroit last month. “Adapting to this rapid change is an imperative,” said Pam Lopker President of QAD. Ray Kurzweil, inventor, futurist and Director of Engineering at Google explained that while the human brain operates linearly, the rate of change growing is exponential. In information technology, this is represented by Moore’s law. Correspondingly, the rate of information processing is growing exponentially.
