Throw out your crystal ball and tarot cards and join us for a realistic look at what the future might hold! We will study how future forecasts are made today and some confounding factors that make future predication challenging. The integration of technology and biology is on the near horizon as well as transformative cultural leaps related to Artificial Intelligence, robotics, and computer/internet technology more broadly. How will our culture, and individuals, adapt to these changes? In the distant future, the environment of Earth is looking perilous; while space exploration of the galaxy may be part of our distant future if we can adapt and thrive.
