The Future Is Here

In our anniversary special issue, we focus on the immediate future, and what the next decade would look like

Is it possible to predict the future?
In ten years from now, for instance, the interface between the citizen and the government would get minimised. Governance, as well as public utilities like banks, would be a click away — perhaps on one’s smartphone (or whatever variant is available then).

With technology, AI, machine learning and robotics changing the way we work, and we live, it’s difficult to visualise what would happen a year from now. There is a constant cycle of unlearning and relearning that one must engage in, if one has to remain relevant in this world.

The technologies that we employ today would become redundant two years from now, not to speak of a decade. A team of BW reporters took up this challenge of crystal-gazing and mapping the future — ten years from now. Be it entrepreneurship or IT services, aviation or mobility, healthcare or defence, fintech or education, the future is promising. Some would say it’s scary — such is the degree of unpredictability.

BW reporters put on their thinking caps s well as gathered perspectives from experts to identify key trends for the future. All in all, it’s a document a futurologist could be proud of. Truly, a collector’s item.
