I gave feedback to Daniel Whitney, Lydia McGahey and Tobias Thomas about their respective project betas on future cultures. Each of their BCM325 projects ‘Future Societies’, ‘Our World, Our Future’ and ‘Where the Future is Taking You’ effectively address the DA focus of considering the future in the next 5, 10, 25 or 50 years.
As explained in Future Cultures – Artificial Intelligence: Predictions and Revolutions, predictions about future cultures can be categorised. Futurists will be either pessimistic (believe AI will extinct humans), pragmatic (believe AI will duplicate or augment future abilities), doubtful (don’t believe AI is a threat) or optimistic (believe AI surpassing human intelligence is positive). Daniel, Lydia and Tobias’ projects each present elements of these categories.
