Emerging Technologies / Life at the Edge of the Future invites us to think forward from our present moment of planetary,  public and everyday crisis, through the prism of emerging technologies.

It  calls for a new ethical, responsible and equitable path towards  possible futures, curated through in-depth engagement with and across  experiential, environmental and technological possibilities. It tackles  three of the most significant challenges for contemporary society by  asking: how emerging technologies are implicated in the sites of  everyday lives; what place emerging technologies have in an evolving  world in crisis; and how we might better imagine and shape ethical,  equitable and responsible futures. The book interweaves three  narratives, each of which advances three sets of concerns for our  societal futures: ‘Emergence’, which addresses futures, trust and hope;  ‘Worlds’, which addresses data, air and energy; and ‘Technologies’,  which addresses the future of mobilities, homes and work.

Not  simply a critical study of emerging technologies, this book is also an  approach to thinking and practice in times of global crisis that plays  out a mode of future-focused scholarship and action for the first half  of the twenty-first century.
