NYT: Michio Kaku interviews 300 of the world's top scientists and predicts the future

NYT: Michio Kaku interviews 300 of the world's top scientists and predicts the future | Visions and Future Scenarios | Scoop.it

Michio Kaku: When making predictions, I have two criteria: the laws of physics must be obeyed and prototypes must exist that demonstrate “proof of principle.” I’ve interviewed more than 300 of the world’s top scientists, and many allowed me into laboratories where they are inventing the future. Their accomplishments and dreams are eye-opening. From my conversations with them, here’s a glimpse of what to expect in the coming decades:


1.     Computers Will Disappear

2.     Augmented Reality Will Be Everyday Reality

3.     The Brain-Net Will Augment the Internet

4.     Capitalism Will Be Perfected

5.     Robots Will Be Commonplace

6.     Aged Body Parts Will Be Replaced

7.     Parents Will Design Their Offspring based on Genomics

8.     Cybermedicine Will Extend Lives

9.     Dictators Will Be Big Losers

10.   Intellectual Capitalism Will Replace Commodity Capitalism

Cities With A Future: Most Competitive Global Markets for 2025 | Visions and Future Scenarios | Scoop.it

When you’re starting a business — or trying to grow one — it helps if your city is a fertile environment for growth. An interesting new report conducted for global bank Citi projects which cities will be the most competitive in 2025.


The survey ranks the cities for a number of factors, including war odds, infrastructure, crime, natural disaster risk, and education levels. These are weighted to determine which cities have the magical combination that best attracts entrepreneurs and encourages business growth.

Futurists plan worldwide 24-hour discussion to celebrate Future Day on March 1

Futurists plan worldwide 24-hour discussion to celebrate Future Day on March 1 | Visions and Future Scenarios | Scoop.it

On March 1, Future Day, six international futurist organizations will come together to conduct a 24-hour conversation about the world’s potential futures, challenges, and opportunities, according to Millennium Project CEO Jerome Glenn and Humanity+ Secretary Adam A. Ford.

In addition to The Millennium Project, the organizations are: Association of Professional FuturistsClub of AmsterdamHumanity+World Future Society, and the World Futures Studies FederationFuture Day events worldwide are already scheduled in more than 20 cities around the world.


This year, Glenn decided to help extend Future Day as a global online event and start a new tradition that could eventually help humanity “think itself together for a more beautiful future.”


“Wherever you are in the world, you are invited at 12:00 noon in your timezone to click on the Future Day button at the Millennium Project website or Global Futures Day to join this global video conversation about the future,” says Glenn. If the limit of interactive video conference participation is reached, new arrivals will be able to see and hear, but not have their video seen and voice heard. However, they can send a tweet including @MillenniumProj #FutureDay that can be read live in the video conference. As people drop out, new video slots will open up. “This is an open, no-agenda discussion about the future, but in general, people will be encouraged to share their ideas about how to build a better future,” notes Glenn.


The idea for Future Day originated with Humanity+ Vice Chair Ben Goertzel at a Second Life conference on September 15, 2011, according to Ford, who has been coordinating Future Day in 2012 and 2013 and is founder and president of Humanity+ Australia and Science, Technology & the Future. “Future Day each year gives us an ongoing opportunity to focus our energy on inventing the future we want,” he says. “We encourage schools, organizations, clubs, and groups of people to organize their own Future Day events globally and let us know at Future Day about their activities.”
