All Tomorrow's Futures: scientists meet sci-fi writers to invent possible futures

Strand Campus, London

Contributing academics from King’s College London will be joined by the editors of All Tomorrow’s Futures: Fictions That Disrupt, the latest book of foresight from the think-tank Cybersalon.

They will discuss the methodology and ideas behind this, 'thrilling ride through diverse speculative landscapes, mixing the best elements of fun and imaginative story telling with real-life insights from top practitioners.'

Situated in ‘real-life’ between accelerationism and scepticism, this volume of disruptions serves as a thought-provoking look into the potential consequences of scientific progress, technological development and societal evolution.
