  • 10. Diabesity   Health   With  diabetes  consuming  5%  of  GDP  a  combina;on  of     fat  taxa;on,  pa;ent  data  mining  and  personal  budgets     will  play  a  role  in  stabilising  the  obesity  epidemic  
  • 11. Global  Pandemics   Health   We  are  likely  to  see  2  to  3  major  pandemics  start  in     regions  with  limited  public  healthcare  and  rapidly     spread  globally  and  so  demand  fast  response

  • 22. Credible  Sources   Security   Greater  informa;on  overload  moves  our  focus     from  simply  accessing  data  to  include  the  source     of  the  insight  to  dis;nguish  what  we  trust  
  • 23. Solar  Sunrise   Security   Increasing  governmental  focus  on  energy  security     and  climate  change  drives  the  uptake  of  large-­‐scale     solar  as  the  leading  renewable  supply  
  • 24. Water  Management     Security   Advanced  water  purifica;on,  irriga;on  and  desalina;on   technologies  are  used  to  help  communi;es  to   manage  the  rising  supply  /  demand  imbalance  
  • 25. Locality  
  • 26. Mega  City  States   Locality   Increasing  compe;;on  between  ci;es  over-­‐rides  na;onal   priori;es  as  mayors  lead  bold  ini;a;ves  to  place  their     ci;es  at  the  forefront  of  the  global  stage

  • 29. Mobility  
  • 30. Asian  Avia;on   Mobility   Led  by  more  tourists  and  steady  growth  in  cargo     transporta;on,  Asian  avia;on  places  more  orders     and  becomes  the  largest  air  market  in  the  world  
  • 31. Drone  Wars   Security   Intelligent  UAVs  choose  their  vic;ms  themselves     as  the  race  for  more  focused  military  influence  leads     to  the  prolifera;on  of  assassina;on  tools

  • 33. People  Tracking   Mobility   The  acceptance  of  being  tracked  by  your  mobile  is  accelerated     by  ;cket-­‐less  transport  systems,  increased  surveillance     and  successful  loca;on-­‐based  services  
  • 34. Dense  Ci;es   Locality   As  urban  migra;on  increases,  efficient,  densely     populated  ci;es  not  distributed  op;ons  are  the     blueprints  for  more  sustainable  places  to  live    
  • 35. Less  Energy   Wealth   Consumers  are  incen;vised  to  use  significantly     less  energy  as  escala;ng  growth  in  carbon  emissions     force  u;li;es  to  change  their  business  models

  • 46. More  people  =  more  freight  +  more  travel   Less  energy  +  more  conges:on  =  more  regula:on   >  Big  steps  forward  in  some  loca:ons  (but  not  all)   >  New  business  models  on  access  and  pricing   =  Some  great  opportuni;es  for  innova;on   Key  Mobility  Thoughts
