The World Has Changed: Navigating Technological Change For A Better Future:

Advancing technologies have made it possible to solve the grand challenges of humanity including hunger, disease, energy, and education to create the amazing future of Star Trek. In this ideal world, we could have unlimited and inexpensive food, clean energy, education for all, and live in perfect health.

Yet the same technologies that make this possible can also be used to engineer deadly viruses and create pandemics far worse than Coronavirus, rob humans of their jobs and livelihoods, create massive inequity and social turmoil, and take away our privacy and freedoms. This is the dystopia of Mad Max. The pandemic has taught us all what exponential means and accelerated our move to the future.
