Recording: Featured Session: 15 Non-Obvious Trends Shaping Our Future Normal, Mar 11, 2023

Anyone can offer a prediction about the future. Predicting the future normal is far harder.

What does it take to identify world changing trends that will actually last? For the past decade, Rohit Bhargava and Henry Coutinho-Mason have been on the front lines of the future—doing research that has taken them into cutting-edge labs, private testing facilities, and invite-only showcases across the world. Now for the first time ever, in this exclusive SXSW session where they launch their new book they will reveal the most powerful stories and instigators that are already shaping humanity’s next decade. From biophilic skyscrapers to generative AI to haptic interfaces, this Featured Session will offer a clear-eyed overview of not only the technology changing our world, but also explore the deeply human questions all this advancement will raise. Delivered with trademark “non-obvious” stories and infused with actionable insights, this session will help you get ready for the coming future.
