Book Summary: In The Industries of the Future, Alec Ross(an American technology policy expert and the former Senior Advisor for Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State) examines the industries that will most shape our economic future, including robotics and artificial intelligence, cybercrime and cybersecurity, the next step for big data, and the impact of digital technology on money and markets.


In each of these fields, Ross addresses the toughest questions:
1. How will we have to adapt to the changing nature of work?
2. Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race?
3. How can the world’s rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley with its own innovation hotspots?
4. What can today’s parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow?

Combining storytelling and economic analysis, Ross reveals the technologies and industries that will drive the next stage of globalization.

Ross spends time exploring “Code” and how the codification of money and also weapons (computer security) will both benefit and potentially disrupt our international economies. Ross also looks at how data will be “the raw material of the information age.

This book was chosen because, for lawyers to efficiently anticipate legislative and regulatory changes while performing their broad legal functions, they would need to understand what kind of industries would really exist.

Book for the Month of February

Name: The Future of the Internet and how to stop it

Author: Jonathan Zittrain

Download link: Click here to get your copy of the book


Book Summary: This extraordinary book explains the engine that has catapulted the Internet from backwater to ubiquity(omnipresence). It discusses several legal issues regarding the internet.

The internet’s current trajectory is one of the lost opportunities. It’s salvation, Zittrain argues, lies in the hands of its millions of users. Drawing on generative technologies like Wikipedia that have so far survived their own successes, this book shows how to develop new technologies and social structures that allow users to work creatively and collaboratively participate in solutions, and become true NETIZENS (citizens of the internet).
