I’m Recapping the Future
My most recent gig with ETH Zurich is recapping the Global Lectures Series.
The series is a platform for global thinkers to propel their ideas in conversations around contemporary issues. Topics range from the status of gender politics to geopolitics to future robotics. Hosted by ETH Zurich’s head of Foresight, Chris Luebkemann, the conversation typically lasts an hour, and engages two experts—one from the ETH cohort, and the other (usually a teleprescence) an international thought leader from their field. My part is to recap and summarize for the ETH Ambassadors’ Blog (where I also act as an editor to the weekly guest bloggers).
Highlights so far include A Patchwork Perspective with Parag Khanna and Myriam Dunn Cavelty and The Soft Revolution with ETH’s Robert Katzchmann and Daniela Rus of MIT.
I’m also rETHinking the future—or at least helping to illustrate it!
For the ETH Rethinking the Future Living Room at the 2022 World Economic Forum in Davos, I created three teaser videos for the featured projects:
