  • Starting point for this is that there are already lots of examples of how digi tech have changed the way we communicate, buy and sell etcPotential of digi tech –if we were to design how you access information now, knowing how much comp power you have in your pocket; design learning interactions; ways of reducing social isolation etc etc, perhaps we would do it differently.Moore’s law – tech to get into space! – with this growth – how would wWhe begin to design what social care, education, addressing poverty, environmental action could look like in 5 years time? What sort of action would you like to see in 5 years time – let’s start testing and developing it now.We can expect Moore’s law to continue – so EXPLORE if you have a super computer in your pocket, sensor devices in your hand and environment how would you address social challenges? OR, another way of looking at this (William Gibson, future’s already here its just not evenly distributed) – if we imagine more people have current smartphones, internet access, tablets etc – how would we design approaches?£500 tablet will cost under £100 in 4 years
