October 19th sees the launch of the latest book from Fast Future. A Very Human Future—Enriching Humanity in a Digitized World acknowledges the powerful technological shifts reshaping our world and addresses five key themes that are occupying the minds of individuals, politicians, business leaders, and civil society organizations across the globe:
Exponential Technologies – How might exponential technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) evolve over the next two decades and impact society, business, industry sectors, and government?
Future of Work – What are the implications for the way work will be organised and executed in the future and the net impact on employment?
People First – With powerful technological shifts reshaping our world and straining the old social fabric, how can we keep humanity at the centre of the story?
Policy Priorities – What societal, political, and economic priorities are required, so that we avoid dehumanizing ourselves and future generations?
Enriching Humanity – How can we harness intense technological bursts of possibility to bring about a better world for all its inhabitants?
The scale of likely future disruption is driven by the commercial and competitive drive from companies and countries to be leaders in the race to dominate world changing fields such as AI, blockchain, and genomics. Indeed, the central argument of the book is that we cannot and generally should not try to hold back innovation. Instead, the book argues that we need to overturn the death grip of decaying orthodoxies and assumptions that hold back societal adaptation and human advancement.
