Science Fiction has been a great way to predict the future. Science Fiction Design Intelligence is a future-back approach to design, developed at Singularity University. Through the process, we create stories about possible futures and track backwards to identify the necessary next steps to make the future we choose a reality.
Join Robert Suarez to discover the power of science fiction as a predictive tool and inspire and activate your design process for ideating a new business, product or initiative.
In this session, you will:
- Understand the power of science fiction for envisioning possible futures
- Apply STEEP (Societal/Technological/Environmental/Economic/Political) variables to your work in order to develop more holistic solutions
- Learn how to Retrocast from future concepts back to today to identify necessary next steps
- Position yourself for experimentation in design and innovation methods for your colleagues, clients, collaborators, and co-conspirators
