Although the predictions are humorous in nature, the technology behind each trend is real.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
Popular and provocative keynote speaker, best-selling author and renowned global futurist Jack Uldrich has released his annual list of predictions for 2014. Included on this year’s list are: a superstar MOOC professor, a sexting senator, a deadly virtual rollercoaster, an irrationally exuberant Alan Greenspan, a $100 bio-burger, a Miley Cyrus-stalking drone, and a Tesla-fuled electrical grid blackout ... among other things.
“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 the scenarios must be taken seriously. Each prediction is intended to provoke the reader’s thinking and help him or her 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 tomorrow's technological transformations.”
In the past year, Uldrich--who also recently released this report on 10 Game-Changing Technological Trends Transforming Tomorrow--has addressed hundreds of business groups around the world, including delivering customized keynote presentations to Eaton, Invensys, United Healthcare, Boston Scientific, Franklin Templeton, Optus, Bausch and Lomb, Avnet, Digi-Key, the European Association of International Educators and scores of other corporations, associations and organizations.
