Ayesha Khanna joins hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon to discuss her book Hybrid Reality. Co-authored with Parag Khanna, Hybrid Reality explores the frontier of the information revolution: The Hybrid Age, making the case that what human civilization needs more than anything is not greater IQ or EQ, but TQ: technology quotient.

 
Has “balance of innovation” superseded the military “balance of power” as a measure of national potential? How are the smartest countries, cities, and companies  harnessing new technologies to gain an edge? Moreover, what role does TQ play in adapting to a future in which robots are normal social actors in our lives, healthcare becomes a vehicle for physical enhancement, academic pedigree dissolves in a global skills market, and virtual currencies enable tax-free transactions?
 
Join us as we explore these critical issues.
