I'm very excited to announce that I have just signed a publishing contract for my first book with FAST FUTURE PUBLISHING. As some of you know, I wrote a chapter in The Future Of Business last year on Automation, Digitization and Simulation. I am very honoured to be working with Rohit Talwar and his team again on my first book.
The title, chapters and cover art are still a work in progress so I can't talk about the details just yet. However, I would like to make a statement and ask you for your help and support.
For the last five years, I have dedicated my life full time to the awe-inspiring, complex and often enigmatic field of futurology. There are many divergent specialities within this field. In fact, the field itself goes by many names.
Futurology, futurism, and foresight are a few. No matter what name is used to describe the speciality or focus, the one thing that each futurist has in common is their passion, love and dedication for the future. Many of these insightful futurists are working toward a better future for our species and the future of the world we all inhabit.
The long history of this remarkable field of study is no less inspiring. From the Russian Cosmists, the retro-futurism of Buckminster Fuller and the progressive ideas of FM-2030, futurists have played a vital role in shaping the future. I am proud to be a part of this visionary, intellectual, and philosophical movement.
As a futurist who is specifically focused on Techno-Philosophy, my role is to facilitate a new narrative for our emerging technological age. A new technological narrative, not for a select few but for a mass audience. This is what I hope to achieve with this first book.
We need to be bold. We need new ideas, new narratives and new visions if want to ethically navigate our new technological future. After all, we are entering a powerful new age where the impossible will become possible. With this new power comes new responsibility.
We are heading toward a technological singularity. An age filled with emerging technologies that will feel magical and at times completely alien to our current reality. Are we ready? Are we cognitively, ethically and psychologically ready for such a profound shift? These are some of the questions I will explore in this book.
I know many of you would like to be involved and help support this effort. Here are a few ways you can help as my team and I prepare to launch this book.
