Scenario prompts are the first step of strategy development. Topics to consider are geo-engineering, London in the future, trends in IoT and smart devices, internal clock speed, super-powered plants, healing using magnetics, chatbots, free will, the AI-first marketplace, zero consumers, smart shelves and microbots.
Read “The Experience Machine” over the weekend.
Should we be geo-engineering the oceans?
A clutch of startups are trying to open up new avenues to remove even more carbon dioxide from our atmosphere by tapping into the ocean’s natural carbon cycles.
What will the London of the future look like?
An independent city-state? A fossilised heritage site?

AI augmented IoT (AIoT), wearables, edge computing, 5G, V2V, digital twins and brain computer interfaces (BIoT?)
What Fast-Moving Companies Do Differently
Speed has now become a true strategic advantage. And it’s a critical driver of the resilience companies today are working hard to build.
Could superpowered plants be the heroes of the climate crisis?
Carbon-guzzling trees and crops, genetically altered to boost photosynthesis and store carbon in the roots, could absorb millions of tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere
Scientists develop innovative magnetic gel that heals diabetic wounds three times faster
Each treatment involves the application of a bandage pre-loaded with a hydrogel containing skin cells for healing and magnetic particles.
The Chatbots Are Now Talking to Each Other
ChatGPT-style chatbots that pretend to be people are being used to help companies develop new product and marketing ideas.
Neuroscientist says we don’t have free will after all
The AI-First Marketplace
New marketplaces will spring up that never could have existed before
‘Zero consumers’: What they want and why it matters
Zero consumers are omnichannel shoppers, they scrimp and splurge at the same time, they’re not loyal to brands, and they care about health and sustainability (even though they aren’t always willing to pay for it)
How Smart Shelves Are Revolutionizing Retail
With real-time inventory, data insights and customer support, smart shelves are essential to any retailer’s digital transformation and omnichannel experience.
Navigating the Cellular Frontier: TUM’s Microbot Innovation
Microbots possess a spherical form and their dimensions are astonishingly minuscule, being just half as thick as a human strand of hair. Their composition is intriguing; they are built from gold nanorods, encased in a biomaterial derived from algae, and infused with a fluorescent dye.
