The Futurist Magazine’s Top Ten Forecasts for 2014 and Beyond by Patrick Tucker

Every year, the editors of the Futurist magazine identify the most provocative forecasts and statements about the future that we’ve published recently and we put them to into an annual report called "Outlook." And every year, we attempt to identify the ten forecasts from that report that paint the most compelling picture of the future as it exists right now.

The Three Things You Need to Know About Big Data, Right Now by Patrick Tucker

Okay. You got me. I can’t really tell you everything you need to know about big data. The one thing I discovered last week – as I joined more than 2,500 data junkies from around the world for the O’Reilly Strata conference in rainy Santa Clara California—is that nobody can, not Google, not Intel, not even IBM.

Autonomous Transportation for the Year 2030 by Patrick Tucker

Sometimes an idea comes along that is so startling, well executed, complex and yet intuitive that it serves as both a perfect reflection of—and fitting compliment to—nature. And an idea like that can eat up your whole morning. If you never believed that design was an act of futurism then allow me to introduce you to Autonomo 2030, an integrated self-driving car system from Australian designer Charles Rattray.
