The Idea Economy – the IT-driven concept that disruption is all around us, and that the ability to turn an idea into a new product or a new industry is more accessible than ever before – is change like we’ve never seen it before.

He shares his experience inside Google’s self-driving car in Silicon Valley, explaining what he learnt there about what the future holds for all of transport users (and not ‘owners’) in the future.
