What can you do with a passion for technology and a background in social science to make an impact on the world? Become a futurist! At least that’s what Trond Undheim did.
Futurism isn’t about predicting exactly, but about project long term potential outcomes and deciding what kind of future we want to optimize for. Futurism and futuristic thinking have a place in business, politics, government, and medicine.
Making predictions and optimizing for the future are Trond’s specialties. He’s an internationally renowned strategy, tech, and innovation executive; the former director of MIT’s Startup Exchange; futurist, author, speaker, and entrepreneur. In this episode, Trond discusses his five predictions for the future of the world after the COVID-19 pandemic, his books, how to survive on serial failure, and where futurism can be applied.
