I was recently invited by the on-line magazine Future Ready Now to submit an article exploring my thoughts about the future.
The Transition of Futurology
If I could summarise my thoughts about the future, it would be Winston Churchill’s observation that the further back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see. So in this article, I would first like to look a little back, into my own experiences with futurology and design and technology, and then further back still to the start of thinking. For it is in ancient Greece that I take inspiration in our understanding of the true potential, and great challenges ahead for the treatment of artificial intelligence and consciousness within futurology and future studies.
