Remember the PC wars of the 1990s?

It was a time of rapid innovation and fierce competition. Companies like IBM, Apple, and Compaq battled for market supremacy, pushing the boundaries of processor speeds, storage capacity, and software capabilities. This era saw the rise of Windows 95, the popularization of the internet, and a seismic shift in how we work and communicate.

Fast forward to today, and we're on the cusp of another technological revolution.
This time, it's not just about personal computers - smartphones are joining the
fray, and the stakes are higher than ever.

Both, PCs and smartphones are poised for a massive overhaul.

The driving force?
Artificial Intelligence.

The integration of AI into our daily computing devices isn't just an upgrade - it's a fundamental reimagining of how we interact with technology.

Our current devices simply aren't up to the task. The processing power required for seamless AI integration far exceeds what our current chips can handle. We're looking at a complete overhaul of hardware infrastructure, from the silicon up.

In the smartphone arena, we're seeing a fascinating dynamic.

Apple, with its high market share across demographics, is in a strong position. Soon, your grandmother won't need you to set up her iPhone - AI will do it for her.
But don't count out the competition. The race to create the most intuitive,
AI-integrated smartphone experience is just beginning.

What we're witnessing is the emergence of a 'tech Supercycle' - a period of booming
demand that elevates the prices of assets to unprecedented heights. Unlike
prior tech Supercycle’s, this time three technologies are driving it: AI, connected ecosystem of Everything (IoE), and biotech/biometrics.

This Supercycleisn't just about new gadgets.

It's about a fundamental shift in how we interact with technology, how businesses
operate, and how we solve complex problems.

Here's a startling revelation: I've discovered that perhaps half of the active leadership workforce hasn't even started using ChatGPT or shown more than mild
curiosity about AI. If you're in this group, consider this your wake-up call.

The AI revolution isn't coming - it's here.

And soon, it will be landing on your smartphone and PC, whether you're ready or
not. The question is: will you be prepared to leverage these tools, or will you
be playing catch-up?

For those eager to explore these concepts further, I encourage you to check out my recently updated "Navigating the Next Frontiers: Mastering Industry 4.0" custom workshop. You can find all the details at

Speaking of AI-powered computing, let's give a shout-out to an unexpected player making a grand re-entrance: Qualcomm. They're stepping back into the spotlight with a giant leap into the AI chip and AIPC worlds.

You get down with your bad self Qualcomm!

For more insights on this topic, don't forget to check out my recent blog post,
"The Future(s) of Computing, AI-Powered PCs and the Rise of the Talkies." It provides a deeper dive into how these technological shifts are set to transform our daily lives and business operations.

Soooooo, are You Future-Ready?

As we stand on the brink of this new era, it's crucial to ask yourself:

“Are you actively working on continual improvement of yourself or within your organization?”

“Do you even have a framework or common language to understand and implement Industry 4.0 concepts?

“Is FOMO on advancements keeping you stuck and up at night?”

If you're unsure about any of these questions, it might be time to seek some
future-focused guidance.

Remember, in the world of exponential technological growth, being a step behind can quickly turn into being miles behind.

Don't let the future catch you off guard.

Stay curious, stay adaptable, and most importantly, stay ahead.
