If you want to become more anticipatory, buy yourself the time to respond, develop your change muscle, and increase the quality of your strategy development, here are the scenario prompts for 5 July 2023. Scenario prompts are the first step of strategy development. If you want to improve your own strategic planning abilities, we have developed a simple four-step programme.

Augmentation, renovation, 3M, bio-inspired polymer brains, special forces, the end of social, single-photon cameras, a perspective on transformative AI, high speed trains and quantum-digital payments.
Check your business model. Negative climate impact is a business risk.
Men or spiders? Robotic arms will multiply our limbs
For the developers of these robotic arms are a further step towards man-machine integration and a future characterized by cyborgs.
Renovation is taking centre stage in the construction sector
If you have innovative solutions in this space, see https://www.circular-accelerator.com/
3M reaches historic settlement over PFAS contamination
Polluters will be sued. 3M just paid out 10.3 billion.
Researchers grow bio-inspired polymer brains for artificial neural networks
Neuromorphic networks run on hardware that looks nothing like a biological brain, which limits performance Now, researchers plan to change this by creating neuromorphic “wetware.”
Niche tech firms will be the new ‘special forces’ in future conflicts”
Interesting perspective on innovation, science fiction and warfare.
So where are we all supposed to go now?
It’s the end of a social era on the web.
At Last, Single-Photon Cameras Could Peer Into Your Brain
Superconductor-based cameras can detect a single photon—the smallest smidgeon of light
Why transformative AI is really, really hard to achieve
We think AI can be “transformative” in the same way the internet was, raising productivity and changing habits. But many daunting hurdles lie on the way to the accelerating growth rates predicted by some.
At 281 miles an hour, China’s new high-speed maglev train is the world’s fastest
High-speed trains offer eco-friendly alternatives to air transport and can haul people and cargo without the need for specialised tracks.
Quantum physicists design unconditionally secure system for digital payments
