Future Of Real-Time Information - @Dory_CarrHarris

   This report, developed for the United Nations Global Pulse team, identifies key trends emerging around the capture and transmission of real-time information streams. Communities and organizations can learn from the themes in PSFK’s Future of Real-Time report to create new solutions that support the care and well-being of the world’s population.

   Evolving data-rich technologies are providing organizations, governments and businesses with a rapid way to monitor the well-being of communities and individuals without significant infrastructure or spend. For organizations whose success is dependent on the ability to quickly recognize and react to high-risk situations, the proliferation of rapid access to “good enough” information is proving invaluable.

Forecasts for the Next 25 Years - Timothy Mack

Forecasts for the Next 25 Years - Timothy Mack | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   The value of a forecast is not just in whether it comes true or not. Some of the best forecasts don’t come true because people took action to avoid a crisis.

   In this era of accelerating change, knowledge alone is no longer the key to a prosperous life. The critical skill is foresight. Knowledge quickly goes out of date, but foresight enables you to navigate change, and take action now to create a better future.

The Next 50 Years: Why I'm Optimistic Because Everything Will Be Terrible | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

With everything rolling towards the abyss, our only hope for a bright future seems to be the Singularity, a technological transformation of what it means to be human.

But in a talk for TEDx Brussels, science fiction and horror writer John Shirley argues that there are really two Singularities — and yes, everything will be terrible in the short term. So why is he optimistic about the future of the human race? Read on.
