The Future Is about People

The Future Is about People | Intellectlife | Scoop.it

We are in the midst of a complex, rapidly changing and uncertain landscape where we must consider how society, the economy, and the environment will collide in unexpected ways to shape the future.


Ultimately, the future will differ greatly from today with shifts in society, advancements in technology, and the creation of new forms of government. The one thing that will remain the same is the central role of people in defining the landscape of the future. Whether it is through enabling exploration through a mindset of abundance, enhancing robotics for interpersonal relationships, or connecting virtual and physical worlds for better sense making, any useful vision of the future must be human centric.
