About Future Living

The connected society is already changing the way we work and relate to each other. The latest mobile devices put what we once would have called a supercomputer in every pocket or handbag. As these devices continue to evolve it will further change every aspect of how we consume and relate to each other. In tandem with other discoveries, innovation will offer greater insight into our physical and mental condition. We will live for longer but this will be accompanied by further challenges as society adapts to an aging population. It doesn’t end there; the power of networks will expand, for instance, into how energy is created, stored and used. Many other businesses will need to disrupt or struggle to stay alive. The deep social, economic and political consequences are already starting to be felt and will only increase.
