Brian David Johnson gets paid to predict the future. He is the first, the one, and the only futurist at Intel, charged with envisioning how people will interact with technology a decade from now.
Currently, Johnsonâ€™s task is to foresee what life will be like in 2022. The main difference between then and now, he noted, is the prominence data will play in peopleâ€™s lives.
This weekend Johnson was one of the keynote speakers at WorldFuture 2012, a gathering of some 500 futurists at Toronto Sheraton Centre and this gave Kristina Skorbach of the Epoch Times the opportunity to interview him.
