Innovation is a window into the uncertain future

Tomorrow's People and New Technology was discussed by one of its co-authors Carolina Duque Chopitea on an episode of What is Innovation? with Jared Simmons. 

Episode 66 of Innovation is a window into the uncertain future. Jared talks with Carolina Duque Chopitea, Director of Technology and Product at Reciqlo, a Circular Economy company that builds solutions for glass recycling, and Co-founder of Brandformers, a digital marketing and consultancy company that helps brands with their digital transition. They discuss why it's important to see innovation as a way of looking at the future, and they unpack the ingredients of innovation that go beyond technology. 

How do you balance the good and the bad of tech innovation? Are you innovating with a meaningful purpose? Carolina's insights and expertise will help guide you to become more 'circular' in your view of technology and innovation.

Carolina wrote the book with Felix Dodds and Ranger Ruffins.

Description of the book

As we witness a series of social, political, cultural, and economic changes/disruptions this book examines the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the way emerging technologies are impacting our lives and changing society.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterised by the emergence of new technologies that are blurring the boundaries between the physical, the digital, and the biological worlds. This book allows readers to explore how these technologies will impact peoples’ lives by 2030. It helps readers to not only better understand the use and implications of emerging technologies, but also to imagine how their individual life will be shaped by them. The book provides an opportunity to see the great potential but also the threats and challenges presented by the emerging technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, posing questions for the reader to think about what future they want. Emerging technologies, such as robotics, artificial intelligence, big data and analytics, cloud computing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, the Internet of Things, fifth-generation wireless technologies (5G), and fully autonomous vehicles, among others, will have a significant impact on every aspect of our lives, as such this book looks at their potential impact in the entire spectrum of daily life, including home life, travel, education and work, health, entertainment and social life.

Providing an indication of what the world might look like in 2030, this book is essential reading for students, scholars, professionals, and policymakers interested in the nexus between emerging technologies and sustainable development, politics and society, and global governance.
