The Future of Understanding the Future Part 1

Those who do future studies know that there are an infinite number of possible futures. With infinity as a baseline, how does one prepare for what’s to come or predict what will come next? On this two-part episode of Future of Tech, Dr. David Passig, a renowned futurist, explains that future studies is less about predicting the future, and more about understanding the present in order to avoid negative outcomes and enhance positive ones.

Here in part one, Dr. Passig explains the basics of hunting for patterns that might help to predict the future, and he explains exactly why and how humans are built to use technology as a way to break free of the prisons of time and space that currently confine us all. Plus, he gives a prediction about how we might start thinking about gravity a little bit differently not too long from now. Enjoy and tune in for part two next week!
