Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 09, 2011
Popular and provocative keynote speaker, best-selling author and renowned global futurist Jack Uldrich has released his annual list of top ten predictions for 2012. Included on this year’s list are: “collegiate guarantees,” new augmented reality and political-related smartphone apps, urban crops, Paparazzi drones, virtual grocery stores, Nano-drugs, networked traffic, phone sensors, and a backlash against facial recognition technology.
“The scenarios—which are quite specific—are not intend to be taken literally,” said Uldrich, the author of “Jump the Curve: 50 Essential Strategies to Help Companies Deal with Emerging Technologies” and “Higher Unlearning: 39 Post-Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future.” “However, the technology underlying each scenario should be taken seriously. Each prediction is intended to provoke the reader’s thinking and help them better understand how many of today’s technology trends will continue to transform their world.” Continued Uldrich, “the list is also designed to be useful for corporations and organizations involved in strategic planning. To this end, the predictions often show the positive as well as the negative implications of the various technological transformations.”
In the past year, Uldrich—who also recently released his report on the top ten trends for healthcare in 2012, has addressed and consulted with scores of major corporations and associations including IBM, United Healthcare, Cisco, Wipro, General Electric, Trimble Agriculture, and the Healthcare Associations of New York, Tennessee and Minnesota.
