Our predictions of the future are a wild fantasy, inextricably linked to our present hopes and fears, biases and ignorance. The best we can do is try to absorb the lessons from futurism’s checkered past, perhaps learning to do a little better.
Our next Skeptical Inquirer Presents event welcomes podcast host and academic neurologist Dr. Steven Novella. What can we learn from past futurists to help us more meaningfully imagine the future of science and technology? What kinds of technological innovations are likely in the next 20, 100, and even 1,000 years? In The Skeptics’ Guide to the Future, Novella and his co-authors build upon the work of futurists of the past and examine what they got right, what they got wrong, and how they came to those conclusions. He’ll discuss the follies of futurists past and how technology will profoundly change our world, redefining what it means to be human.
