Keynote: Science Fiction and the Future of Work.

Morrow Project

The future is not set; it is not a fixed destination in time. The future is manufactured every day by the actions of people all over the world. As a futurist, Brian David Johnson believes it is incredibly important that we all become active participants in the future. We must ask ourselves what kind of world do we want to live and work in? Where do we want to go? What should we avoid? What scares us? Science fiction is one way that all of us can share visions of possible futures. In fact, science fiction gives up the language so that we can have a conversation about the future. As we look out to the year 2020, how will technological innovation and global trends shape our lives? Where and when will the lines between science fiction and science fact fall away?
