Foresight is the first rough draft of the future.
Our work combines a long-term focus with forecasting and creative storytelling. From Digital Privacy to new Virtual Economies, we are creating seminal analysis on the topics shaping the world of tomorrow.
This project explores the ways in which technology is constraining, facilitating and exacerbating issues with social mobility in developed capitalist democracies.
This interactive visualisation features 54 key emerging technologies underpinning the Virtual Economy - their current capabilities, level of activity, likely trajectory, and research ecosystem.
Set in the year 2030, the Idir explores what the world could be a decade into the future. From advanced materials, through medicine, to bioaugmentation and infrastructure, we stand on the precipice of a great age of science and invention.
The "Strativerse" refers to the layers of Mixed Reality (MR) that will exist on top of our existing analogue world. Facilitated by IoT, MR hardware and data streams, a new universe is emerging, visible only to those with hardware to perceive it.
We are an interdisciplinary team of economists, journalists, scientists and researchers interested in emerging technology related cultural phenomena and change.
