With the onset of a knowledge economy, modern nations are hard at work using ever more sophisticated information systems to power a "technology revolution" that is transforming our lives. This book is based on the work of the TechCast Project, conducted over the past decade at the George Washington University. Pooling the knowledge of 100 high-tech CEOs, scientists, engineers, academics, consultants, futurists, and other experts from around the world, the resulting book is the best forecast data ever assembled, covering the entire span of scientific and technological innovation.

"William Halal's TechCast Project is a powerful system for identifying changes in technology so that decision-makers in business, government, and other institutions can prepare for the enormous changes ahead. There may be no better way to prepare than by equipping yourself with Bill’s latest book. Technology's Promise is readable, authoritative, optimistic, and exciting."-Edward Cornish, Founder, World Future Society, Washington, DC

"You must understand the technology revolution to understand the future.  Halal gives you a readable passport to this new world."-Richard D. Lamm, Director Public Policy & Contemporary Issues, University of Colorado, Denver and Former Governor of Colorado

"A dazzling tour of a broad range of hopeful technologies.  The authoritative forecasts of the TechCast Panel and Bill Halal's skillful synthesis and scenarios make this a must for any futurist, planner, or organization leader; indeed, for anyone interested in the emerging shape of the early 21st Century.  No other book comes anywhere close."- Michael Marien, Editor, Future Survey, Syracuse, New York

"Technology's Promise is a most daring, dazzling and defining book of our time. The book lifts forecasting to the next level and provides brilliantly authoritative scenarios that help tap the staggering opportunities of upcoming technological breakthroughs. Written passionately with incredible clarity and convincing evidence, it dispels the current despair and provides hope for humanity's future. A must for all decision makers in business, government, civil society and individuals who wish to succeed in this tumultuous world." -Dr. Madhav Mehra, President     World Council for Corporate Governance, London
