#AI fought the law, but who won? / ABC Far North

Date posted: February 27, 2018

I've had lots of Future of conversations with the legal and allied industry, dating back to the 1990's and have always been assured, by those in the know, that the legal industry is immune to change, safe and enshrined by 100's of years of protocol and practice, enmeshed sacredly within the foundations and laws of our country. The one thing I know for certain, is that the more certain an industry is that is immune to change, the surer I am that they will face a tsunami, when commercial reality finally hits them. The legal industry, despite constant warnings from all, is now being forced to accept a radical shakeup, that is stripping them ba

Why you’ll own nothing by 2030, not even your pets / Money Magazine

Date posted: January 25, 2018

Imagine a world where you didn’t own “stuff”, but instead chose to rent or share everything with your community. That includes your car, kitchen utensils, caravan, space and even your pets. Welcome to the future, with experts predicting that by 2030 we will become an “asset light” society. “We have now become an experiential society,” says Morris Miselowski, an Australian business futurist. “Whilst post-war baby boomers saw value in the assets they owned, Millennials are putting more value on new experiences to boost happiness over owning assets. “This is due to the rising cost of living and also, along with the rest of society, we

10 ways the world will have changed by 2031 / live on Hong Kong 3, ABC WA, ABC FNQ

Date posted: January 22, 2018

Gen A's (born 2002 - 2025) beginning Prep this week, will finish high school in 2031 and emerge into a world that will be so different to today's that they might as well be living on Mars (and they might be). In this weeks on air segments I chatted about 10 significant ways the world will have changed by 2031, and what we can do now to get them, ourselves and our businesses ready for the very near world ahead:

  1. Gen A won’t use technology, they will BE technology - tech will be so ordinary, ubiquitous and built into every surface and object that we will speak to it, play with it, and engage with it as if it were anot

The first space nation has just been created / Hong Kong Radio 3

Date posted: November 14, 2017

A momentous and slightly bizarre event occurred last week with the launch of a satellite into earth's orbit carrying the names, flags, anthems, charter and knowledge of an entirely new virtual human territory and race of human aliens, all residents of the newly minted virtual space country of Asgardia. In Norse mythology, Asgard is a city in the skies, the country of the Gods and its new space nation incarnation describes its purpose as:

"To serve entire humanity and each and everyone, regardless of his or her personal welfare and the pro

12 things that’ll seem ludicrous in our lifetime / news.com.au, daily telegraph, courier mail, sunshine coast daily, Hong Kong Radio 3, ABC Far North

Date posted: October 30, 2017

We so often look forward to what we might have in the future, that its fun to stop for a minute and think about what we won't have in the future, and this week News.com.au's Gary Nunn reached out to ask exactly that... WITHIN our own lifetime, people will scoff at the thought of sitting on a flight for 22+ hours across the world. It’s one of many things that’ll rapidly seem unfeasible to the upcoming generation. Elon Musk recently revealed plans for a next-generation spacecraft that could fly to “most pla

The history of future travel / Hong Kong 3, ABC Far North

Date posted: October 23, 2017

Humans are born with the travel itch, always eager to travel to and experience exotic lands. In the last 100 years we have stepped up the speed and accessibility of long haul travel, with the cost of a Melbourne - London flight in the 1940's costing of 122X the average weekly salary and taking about 3 days, and today it's under 1 week salary and soon under 20 hours. And there's loads more of us flying, in 2016 3.6 billion people flew in 2030 this should rise to 6.7 billion, with the largest growth sectors in the Asia pacific regions.. On the eve of Qantas landing its first Dreamliner plane in Australia, and the promise of Perth - London direct and other long haul non sto

Predicting the Future of Your Business / Business Brain Food Podcast

Date posted: October 9, 2017

Absolutely chuffed to be invited on to Ben Fewtrell's Business Brain Food Podcast and what a great chat we had, as we explored all things future; the way humans will live, love, work, create and play; what's ahead for business, some of the tricks of the futurist trade and the step by step methodology I use to do what I do, including my most beloved workshop: The Drunken Saturday Night. Ben's intro of me went like this: "What a thoroughly interesting man we have on the show this week. Morris Miselowski has made it his business to predict the future, but there are no crystal balls and tarot cards here….. Mor

Living to 120 and working to 90 / Channel 10’s The Project

Date posted: October 6, 2017

The crew from Channel 10's The Project reached out this evening, ahead of a keynote I'm delivering in Adelaide on the weekend on Living to 120 and working into our 90's and asked if I could take them on a tour of tomorrow in search of what a world where we all have the potential to live to beyond 100 might look like. Along the way, we explored a tomorrow in which we routinely live to 100 and beyond; asked what jobs if any we might be doing (including my belief that there will be no jobs, as we know them); how we could possibly work until we're 90; how we might be liv

The 8 incredible frontiers of tomorrows medicine / ABC WA Regional Drive

Date posted: October 2, 2017

In 2007 I spoke about a near future, somewhere around 2015, when humans would evolve to become HomoCyborgs and one of the consequence of this new technology tethering would be to open a digital door into our bodies that would allow us to 24/7 peer deep inside ourselves to constantly monitor our health and wellness. One of the consequences of having this real time evidence of our impending immortality is that inevitably our innate self preservation and human survival needs would kick in, forcing us to move away from an approach where we waited for our body to break down and then repaired it, to a future state where we would actively attempt to delay or prevent
