"Technology in 2025: Designing the Future." Technological futurist Brian David Johnson talks about what technology, and its intersection with multiple areas of work and society, could mean for the future. National Affairs Series.

Brian David Johnson was the first futurist at the Intel Corporation, where he worked for a decade helping design over 2 billion microprocessors. As an applied futurist, Johnson has worked with governments, militaries, trade organizations, start-ups and multinational corporations to not only help envision their future, but to help develop an actionable 10-15 year vision. His work is called future-casting, and he uses ethnographic field studies, technology research, cultural history, trend data, global interviews and even science fiction to provide a pragmatic roadmap of the future. He is currently the futurist in residence at Arizona State University's Center for Science and the Imagination and a professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society.
