Research and Practice in "Nonprofits" and Philanthropy: An Overview

George McCully

Abstract


Information technology and now especially “artificial intelligence” (AI) are transforming so many fields that it is probable we are living in one of the great Ages of Paradigm Shifts, comparable for example to that of the early modern period—from the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, and 17th Century Absolutism, to the Enlightenment—all empowered by Gutenberg’s IT revolution of printing with movable type. This time the pace and scope of change have dramatically quickened and spread, owing to the technology’s increasing power; whereas previous momentous shifts took centuries to be resolved, ours is taking only decades, and is global, though still without clear dénouement. It is massive, inexorable, and inevitable.
