Driven by Futures
Never before in the history of mankind have futures been so present as now. This is especially noticeable in technical innovations. Years to decades used to lie between the announcement of a technical development and its use in everyday life. Now twenty-year-olds use social media apps or other intelligent machines long before they are described publically. In other words, the reference system of our present is changing at a rate previously unknown. Youth cultures are sort of early warning systems for cultural change processes, and they show us possible futures we are in fact already facing. But also from an intergenerational perspective, technical progress doesn’t really let anyone stay behind. We allow ourselves to become more and more predictable for artificial intelligence, for example we let our cars drive us automatically or we let ourselves be measured voluntarily by health apps.
