The Future of Reality What is reality? a question asked throughout history, whose very mundane answer does nothing to really describe our experience of it. The Future of Cities The world faces accelerated rates of urban expansion. According to the United Nations, 55 per cent of the global population currently lives in cities by 2050, that number is expected to reach 68 per cent, which means an additional 2.5 billion people will reside in urban areas. The Future of Governance Technological, economic and social forces seem poised to thrust both greater freedom and greater responsibility on people’s shoulders. The Future of Transport From the invention of the first wheel in Ancient time to the first mass-market car Model T by Henry Ford to Bullet Trains to Airplanes we have come a long way in the development of modes of transportation. The Future of Work To kick off we will be discussing the theme of ‘The Future of Work’ which is a topic at the heart of the socioeconomic and political concerns surrounding AI and automation. The Future of Politics Over time, AI will spawn massive changes in the public sector, transforming how government employees get work done. It’s likely to eliminate some jobs, lead to the redesign of countless others, and create entirely new professions. The Future of Education As technology is rapidly changing the world around us and in the near future, technology might take over a lot of tasks and abilities that we have been teaching our students for decades.
