For most of our human history, we have had a desire to predict the future; which has actually helped us survive and thrive. In this course we will look at some of these deep evolutionary forecasting factors and then look at modern approaches to future forecasting. Confounding factors that shape the future will also be examined, such as disruptive technologies and "black swan" events.
