I found it interesting that Ford (FoMoCo) have entire futurists division - whom's which brief does NOT include any research about motor vehicles, in fact they are instructed against vehicle ponderings.

 

One of their Futurists was on the radio last week.

 

Timely.

I love stuff like this. I'm so negative and pessimistic about the premise of a future--people like this almost inspire me to think differently. I love the "Are we being good ancestors?" quote.

A lot of the work I've been involved with in the past kind of moved in to futures work when forecasting went past about the 20 year mark. We used to look at how battery and energy technology would change international relations in regards to robotics, economics, warfare, transport, aged care, etc. etc. How nanotech effects medication is also really interesting, so it AI, etc. etc.

 

Great stuff, especially for the dreamers among us.
