The society of the future looks nothing like you might imagine



What is a “smart” society? While flights of imagination from science-fiction writers, filmmakers, and techno-futurists involve things like flying cars and teleportation, in practice smart technology is making inroads in a piecemeal fashion, often in rather banal circumstances. In Chicago, for example, predictive analytics is improving health inspections schedules in restaurants,…

5 big ideas to reboot democracy in the EU



There is a widespread, intensifying belief that without the greater involvement of its citizens, the European Union is condemned to fail. While this realization is far from new, recent events in Catalonia along with Brexit have lent it fresh force. At the same time, as our everyday realities become less and less "national" in scope and in scale, a sense of collective destiny is growing among the peoples…

What is a sovereign wealth fund?



Norway’s sovereign wealth fund, the largest in the world, has just exceeded $1 trillion for the first time. As sovereign wealth funds around the world grow in size and number, they are becoming increasingly powerful players on the global financial scene.

Automation is more complex than people think. Here’s why



Automation is a topic on which most people have an opinion. The level of knowledge on the subject varies greatly, as does the amount of fear that people feel towards the technological revolution that is taking place. I get the impression that even informed writers - including myself - in this field often take, for numerous reasons, convenient short-cuts when it comes to writing and talking about…

Global ocean governance is all at sea. It’s time to fix it



The 1982 UN Law of the Sea was the largest ever annexation of our planet and our ocean. In one stroke, one-third of our planet was formally designated as 'exclusive economic zones', giving coastal countries rights to 200 miles of ocean around their continental shelf. The law came into force in 1994. This meant 35% of the world’s surface - equivalent to the planet’s total land area - or almost…

The shocking numbers behind the modern slave trade



We might like to think that slavery is a thing of the past, but in fact in the 21st century the opposite is true. There are over 40 million people across the world caught up in the modern-day slave trade, according to a new report. And it occurs right under our noses, in every corner of the globe. In the UK, for example, Vietnamese gangs used nail bars as a front to traffic women…

Diplomats and designers are key to solving climate change. Here’s how they think we can do it



Diplomacy and design are both science and art, technical professions that adhere to the rules of politics and physics but celebrate charisma and creativity. The two disciplines are rarely in conversation, lacking common language and institutions. Nonetheless, diplomats and designers increasingly take up the same questions and challenges from terrorism to sustainable development and climate change.…

How Young Entrepreneurs Transformed Xiamen Into a Creative Hub



In September, I gazed out the window as the airplane made its final approach in Xiamen, a historic city in eastern China’s Fujian province. From my vantage point, I saw a giant creature strung between two pale gray industrial complexes — a vast crimson insect at least 20 meters tall, extending its limbs to cling to the buildings around it.The otherworldly structure was, in fact, a towering logo…

The remarkable robots that are transforming filmmaking



Maxima, Hydrascope, Oculus, Griptrix, Technocrane, Shotover F1, Movi XL, DJI Ronin and the list goes on. What all of these vaguely ominous names have in common is that they are some of the highest tech, cutting-edge tools available to filmmakers today and they are all robotics systems. Combining high-tech robotics with the needs for cinematic precision, engineers of today are maximising the capabilities…
