Tech Futures Lab
IFTF's Tech Futures Lab combines a deep understanding of technology and societal forces to identify and evaluate discontinuities and innovations in the next three to ten years.
The Tech Futures Lab anticipates future forces in science and technology that will combine to transform how we live, work, and play over the next decade. We monitor early signals and new discoveries to understand how social and organizational change occurs.
For more than 30 years, IFTF's approach to technology forecasting has been and remains unique—we put people at the center of our forecasts. Understanding humans as consumers, workers, householders, and community members allows IFTF to help companies look beyond technical feasibility to identify the value in new technologies, forecast adoption and diffusion patterns, and discover new market opportunities and threats. Research from our Tech Futures Lab helps organizations develop insights and strategic tools to better position themselves for the future.
