In his panel, Klaus Burmeister addresses the issues and hardships of a futurologist: „The conception of ourselves as a thinking and rational species at the centre of the world is teetering. Only hesitantly do we accept the notion that we are interacting in a complex network alongside and with computers. If it’s no longer our knowledge that makes us different, what then?“
Klaus Burmeister is founder of Z_punkt – The Foresight Company, one of the leading companies for strategic foresight consulting and corporate foresight. He launched the foresightlab in 2014 and has been dealing intensively with the challenges facing the economy and society for three decades.
