The World in 2033: Big Thinkers And Futurists Share Their Thoughts

The World in 2033: Big Thinkers And Futurists Share Their Thoughts | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Put yourself back in 1993.  Could you have predicted the success of the web, tablets and smartphones, privatized space travel, the rise of terrorism, or the myriad of small changes that impact how you live today? To do that going forward and to predict our world in 2033, you need the voices of the smartest minds on the planet to spot trends in their areas of discipline and give us insight into where we are heading.

Joe Stafura's curator insight, February 13, 2013 11:17 AM

These are interesting primarly because we often wind up doing what we set out to do, but the methods change along the way in a way that is hard to predict. Widespread communication systems, mobile computing and wireless systems were all accomplished, but not as expected.

Why I Believe That This Will Be The Most Innovative Decade In History

Why I Believe That This Will Be The Most Innovative Decade In History | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Many people believe that we’ve run out of ideas and that the future will be one of bleak shortages of food, energy, and water. Billionaire Peter Thiel, for example, argues that despite spectacular advances in computer-related fields, technological progress has actually stalled because the internal combustion engine still rules our highways, the cancer death rate has barely changed since 1971, and the top speed at which people can travel has ceased to improve.
Thiel is right about engines, speed, and cancer death rates. But he and the pessimists are completely wrong about what lies ahead. I don’t believe that the future holds shortages and stagnation; it is more likely to be one in which we debate how we can distribute the abundance and prosperity that we’ve created.
Why am I so optimistic? Because of the wide assortment of technologies that are advancing at exponential rates and converging. They are enabling small teams to do what was once only possible for governments and large corporations. These exponential technologies will help us solve many of humanity’s grand challenges, including energy, education, water, food, and health.
Let me give you a taste of what lies ahead.
