A fascinating class that began by reviewing the previous week’s content. We spoke briefly on futurecasting, backcasting, nowcasting, and the pivotal notion of the “present” from which to look forward or look back from to a historical point. We discussed the impossible barber thought experiment and our knowledge of nature. We discussed the use of evidence, and also what happens when there is no evidence to glean on? We then considered possible futures. Finally an activity on driverless vehicles and the potential scenarios which would emanate. Some students mentioned the introduction of light rail systems, others self-driving cars, still others the importance of ride sharing, bicycles and scooters for rent, as well as the very real possibility that their would be more highways and more cars on those highways. So while the future could be AV, it was also hybrid. People would still like driving their own personal vehicles around at least some of the time, and public transport would improve, but with the potential to plug gaps using ride-sharing systems. Everyone agreed that cost was a major consideration in “futures of transport”, but over time, sustainability might well be more important with respect to climate change.
