As Douglas Adams taught us, the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is 42. But what’s the question? As the exponential growth of computing power continues unabated the world needs flexible, curious problem-solvers with an aptitude for techno-economic thinking. Machines are good at giving us answers, but it’s asking the right questions that counts.
Delivering powerful insights that re-shape traditional thinking and provoke new digital visions for industries and companies. Futurenautics, together with our colleagues at The Futures Agency, bring a formidable array of talent to bear for individuals and organisations seeking to challenge their assumptions and begin the search for new questions.
The question we need to be asking about the future isn't, "what's going to change?"
It's "what isn't going to change?"
As the world enters a unique period in human history the question we need to be asking isn’t, ‘what’s going to change?‘ The question we should ask is ‘what isn’t going to change?’
A range of global megatrends are colliding headlong with breakthrough technologies experiencing exponential growth.
The combinatorial effect of these, together with new generational mindsets, is accelerating change and creating disruption on a previously unthinkable scale.
From abundant energy to synthetic biology, nanotechnology, robotics and the infinite extension of human life, the world is likely to change more in the coming decades than it has done for centuries.
The impact on human lives and experiences – health, education, work, security, finance, government, defence, communities, ethics, belief systems and ideologies – will be immense.
Yet most people have yet to grasp the enormity of the change coming their way.
Futurenautics exists to identify and contextualise how the technology-enabled future will impact the lives and expectations of human beings whilst equipping them with the information, insight and appetite to fully participate in its creation.
We work with individuals and organisations of all types and all sizes, in every industry you can think of, to drive a better understanding of what the future is likely to look like, and why. We help create the digital vision and transformations that will benefit businesses, consumers and society around the world.
