Entrepreneurs are moving quicker and quicker as time goes on. Google’s futurist Ray Kurzweil calls this acceleration of tech over time speeding up the law of accelerating returns.
Tech hubs that enable a more advanced society can progress at a faster rate than other societies.
19th century entrepreneurs knew more and had better tech than 15th century business owners, so society was far more advanced in the 19th century. This law of accelerating returns works on the small scale particularly in Silicon Valley, as self-driving cars become a reality.
As we can see with self-driving cars, entrepreneurs are making the law of accelerated returns prominent.
If the predictions are accurate and self-driving cars are a distinctive part of culture by 2021 then we are on the brink of advances we have never seen before in such a short period of time.
