Innovation keeps speeding up, Brandis explains, because “technology is driving technology”. Highly disruptive technologies used to be spread out over decades – now they follow each other every couple of years. In addition, “skills as a barrier to entry are fading away”, Brandis observes. “Everybody can participate. That leads to a democratization of innovation.”
