Futurized - thought leadership on the future

The Futurized podcast goes beneath the trends, tracking the underlying forces of disruption in tech, policy, business models, social dynamics, and the environment. Futurist Trond Arne Undheim, PhD, author, investor, and serial entrepreneur, interviews smart people with a soul. Every week, founders, authors, executives and other thought leaders come on the show to discuss the societal impact of deep tech (e.g. AI, blockchain, IoT, CRISPR, nanotech, 3D printing, quantum, robotics) and the emerging future of work, markets, business and society.

Epistemic Security
In this episode of the Futurized podcast, host Trond Arne Undheim interviews Elizabeth Seger, Ph.D., the Director of CASM, Demos’ digital policy research hub. DEMOS is a cross-party political think tank in London, UK.  Seger is also a research affiliate with The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) at the University of Cambridge. They discuss Seger's work on epistemic security, epistemic security thresholds, whether frontier AI should be released to the public, and possible negative consequenses of the securitization of knowledge. This is part of Futurized's focus on the takeaways from the third annual Stanford Existential Risks Conference and the collection of papers now issued as conference Proceedings.  The past two decades have seen anthropogenic global catastrophic and existential risks (x-risks) develop into an increasingly prominent source of academic study, policy focus, and public concern. The proceedings of the third annual Stanford Existential Risks Conference present a diverse array of research by both established and emerging scholars on the past, present, and future of x-risk studies. Some papers sum up the fruits of existing approaches to existential risks, while others address their blind spots or propose potential directions for the future of x-risk studies. Papers vary both by topic—ranging from nuclear risks, biosecurity, ecological collapse, and artificial intelligence and machine learning risks—and by disciplinary approach, featuring works of history, ethics, aesthetics, psychology, political science, sociology, and policy study. Many papers share a common thread in recognizing the importance of cascading risks—particularly potential interactions among acknowledged x-risks, or how cascades of “merely'' catastrophic risks could combine to jeopardize human survival. Collectively, they contribute to the task of expanding the field of x-risk studies to encompass insights, methods, and ethical orientations drawn from a more diverse and broadly representative range of academic disciplines.

Fictitious Capital in our Global System
In this episode of the Futurized podcast, host Trond Arne Undheim interviews Taimur Ahmad, a Stanford graduate student focusing on policy and energy systems, and author of the Fictitious Capital newsletter. They discuss how the global paradigm of continuous progress and development is under threat and faces multiple, vastly misunderstood risks. Concurrently, there is heightened political polarization and a breakdown in constructive discourse. One of the reasons for this is the perpetuation of myths about how the global system works, resulting in a lot of “fictitious capital” atop which our civilization rests. Therefore, the only way to actively build a better future is to go beyond mainstream narratives and understand the base layer of our global system.  Futurized goes beneath the trends to track the underlying forces of disruption in tech, policy, business models, social dynamics and the environment.

How to organize it matters a lot, especially in a resource-constrained environment. The need for scarce talent, particularly in engineering is such that new business models are bound to be explored. Why would parents be the only group investing in educating talent? It might make more sense that governments, lenders, or employers invest, or that students invest in themselves, with collateral in their own IQ or career trajectory. It's an exciting future for young people if these opportunities globalize for every motivated student anywhere.  Thanks for listening.
