Denis Pombriant is a writer who focuses on disruptive technological innovations and the economy. Since 2000 he has researched and written about major changes in the software industry including software as a service (SaaS), cloud computing, social networking, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). His work often includes analyses of the interaction between new technology and society through the lenses of social sciences such as economics and sociology.
In The Age of Sustainability, Pombriant examines some of the social implications of climate change and peak oil and the challenges and opportunities these disruptions pose for civilization. As fossil fuel supplies dwindle the question of adopting alternatives gains importance and urgency. Advanced technologies that have become available only recently hold the key to stabilizing climate, reinventing the energy paradigm, and preparing civilization for curbing the population bubble.
