NEW BOOK – FEB 2019
The new book by M. Pell
author of Envisioning Holograms
By combining Artificial Intelligence and Spatial Computing, we are fundamentally transforming the very nature of information, and the myriad ways we communicate with each other about anything, and everything.
Deceptively powerful and stunningly beautiful, this monumental leap forward in conveying information effectively has always been right there in front of us, waiting to be unlocked, hiding in plain sight. All it took was the convergence of human ingenuity, artificial intelligence, and the rise of a medium capable of magic.
Welcome to The Age of “Smart Information”.
– Charlie Fink, Forbes Columnist, Author, Futurist
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Smart Information revolution started with a simple idea – no more “dead pixels”. Our most important content could no longer be static and disconnected. We instead choose to surface the universe of connections, stories, data, and emotions that are normally invisible to us. The Smart Information construct was designed to convey its essence, relationships, and value at multiple levels of detail, inherently.
Freed from its rigid containers, content adapts itself effortlessly to the optimal way we choose to consume it based on our current context and preference. Designed to be explored, combined, and enhanced, this flexible information container is made possible through next gen creation tools and intelligent playback platforms that work together to anticipate the most predictable trait of people – curiosity.
“The beauty we seek is not found in first impressions, but in the way the truth reveals itself.” – M. Pell
The impact of re-engineering how our thoughts and ideas are conveyed in this way is as dramatic as when we first moved from still photographs to motion pictures at the start of the twentieth century. The opportunities that exist for us to reinvent how we create, transmit, and experience information are unprecedented and boundless.
