Science fiction thinking for business

Business Hackers


LEVEL: Beginners

Ever since Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, science fiction has conveyed visions of technological futures. The communicator from Star Trek and the tablet computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey are prime examples of how science fiction, the design of technology, and business are sometimes entangled. 

With its outlook on alternative futures that are at once familiar and strange, science fiction can provide a different way for businesses  to identify new opportunities, threats, and strategies. In this talk, we will present some selected cases and methods on how science fiction thinking can be used for business.
