What is futurism?

Disruptors and curious minds! What is the future of artificial intelligence? How will it impact geoengineering, smart cities, and the next generation of digital natives? What about neural links, brain hacking, VR and blockchain? How are brands, fortune 500 companies and small business thinking, researching and strategizing for an uncertain future? What is futurism?

In this episode we talk with Alexandra Whittington, a futurist writer and speaker who explores the future of humanity and society. She is a member of the Future of Business team at TCS and a former Lecturer on Foresight at the University of Houston. Alexandra has co-authored and co-edited several books on the future, including A Very Human Future, Aftershocks and Opportunities, and The Future Reinvented.

Futurists (sometimes called futurologists, foresight practitioners and horizon scanners) are the thinkers, writers and researchers who question what our collective futures might be and the impact emerging technologies will have on business, culture and the human condition.

This is an insightful and actionable episode for anyone interested in futurism and how futurists think and work.

Alexandra tells us how she became a futurist, how she researches and writes about the future, and what are the key trends and scenarios for 2024.

She also shares her insights on how AI will affect geoengineering, smart cities, and the next generation of digital natives, and what are the challenges and opportunities for businesses and brands.
