Future of Science 2021 Map/ Il futuro della Scienza nel 2021

Institute for the Future – what a name, right? – is smart enough to know that it can’t actually predict what will happen in 2021. But the group can use our existing knowledge of science to pose interesting “what-if?” questions about where advances in science and technology will take us in the next 10 years, which really is an eternity when it comes to these topics. Here I report the direct words and explanations (NOT MINE ones!) of the Project:

Think of “A Multiverse of Exploration: The Future of Science 2021” as a star chart of possibility, pointing the way toward opportunities for wonder, knowledge, and insight. Use it to raise questions about how your life and work may change in light of the startling transformations that science may bring about in the next ten years. Indeed, every forecast could be rephrased as a “what if” question. What if you could record your dreams? What if you could design a life form? What if you could launch a company in orbit? Your answers to those questions can help inform decisions in the present. Inside this map, you’ll find plenty of space to think...
Not only will our knowledge increase but the way science is done will change in profound ways. A new ecology of science will crystallize, one that shifts from the insular and closed structures of academic, industrial, and military research toward open models based on social connection, data commons, and democratized tools and technology. We will create unprecedented opportunities for collaboration and resource sharing between large organizations, communities, and individuals.
