Siemens magazine with foresight scenarios
The latest issue of Siemens’ Pictures of the Future magazine features technology-driven scenarios for our world ten to fifteen years hence, based on the company’s own research, as well as on some other non-Siemens projects and expert interviews.
The magazine, which is available for download (pdf, 7.9 mb, 51 pages), is organised in sections that deal with infrastructure solutions, electric machines (really!) and simulation.
It is revealing and somehow saddening to see that such a huge international corporation as Siemens, can still imagine future changes to be only driven by technological and engineering developments. Somehow this Epcot style utopian thinking, which feels very dated to me, must still be inspiring for lots of decision makers.
