“The scenarios—which are quite specific—are not intend to be taken literally,” said Uldrich, the best-selling author of “Foresight 20/20: A Futurist Explores the Trends Transforming Tomorrow” and “Higher Unlearning: 39 Post-Requisite Lessons for Achieving a Successful Future.” “However, the technology underlying each scenario must 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 the world around them.” 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.”
