In the desert of New Mexico, a group of scientists, entrepreneurs and innovators come together with an ambitious goal: to secure the future of humanity by creating a new and optimistic pathway into the future. Their expertise is diverse – from science and technology to economics, social studies and the business world.
Focusing on the rising gap between rapidly evolving 'physical' technologies (like artificial intelligence and automation) on the one hand, and our slowly responding cultural systems (government, education) on the other, the group identifies some of the major side effects: rising populism, financial instability, income inequality, and the breakdown of a collective conception of objective facts – all against the backdrop of climate change. Without a change in direction, worldwide turmoil will continue to grow.
Solutions offers deeply inspiring insights into a new vision for humanity, with concrete ideas that will pave the way for solving some of the world's most challenging problems.
