What is futurism? Learn how to track science and tech trends to presage their impact on industry, markets and society. Those trends tend to take place over much longer periods of time than the quarterly returns mindset that most businesses have, though. To me, it's as much being able to see future tech in the context of past trends and recognize what may be a fad or just the latest marketing rebranding of a tech rather than something truly different and game changing.
