Title: Foresight in the Network Era Jos


1
Foresight in the Network Era José Ramos
2
Network Foresight
Most recent development - enabled by large scale,
networked ICT systems Uses online, open, web
2.0 style interactive systems Engaged in
crowdsourcing and collective intelligence (wisdom
of crowds) Employs large scale scanning systems
and interactive processes for idea generation,
visioning Similarities to Integrated
Anticipatory Gov. (RAHS) - systems are robust and
can be deployed in multiple settings
3
Anticipatory Democracy
How do we open up the future to wider
participation? How do we apply learning from
network foresight to develop Anticipatory
Democracy? Capacity to address wicked problem
anticipatory collective intelligence Multiple
stakeholder dynamics for collaboration How do
we create coherence among diverse viewpoints? How
can we use diversity as a resource rather than an
obstacle
4
  • AD and network foresight AD provides the context
    for citizen to gov transformations
  • Network for provides new possibilities
  • Social innovation
  • Policy dev
  • Linking civil society, business and gov.

5
Practical Development
Examples WFSF (networked association) and WSF
(platform) early network era examples shifted
business and academic verticalism to a more
horizontal dynamic Global Business Network
Development networked think tank (shift from
institutional think tank to more fluid form)
Futures Foundation (Australia) played linking
role across practitioners and clients
Millennium Project Global distributed think
tank, 40 nodes and 5000 contributors Tech Cast
(Georgetown Uni) Network process of forecasting
(early crowd sourcing) and consulted to gov and
corp clients Shaping Tomorrow most
successful participatory (crowd sourced) platform
for trend spotting and development WikiStrat
geo-strategic online consulting
6
Finpro gathers / crowdsources data from Finish
gov employees and uses this to inform gov
industry strategy and advise to Finish companies
Sigmascan 2.0 (UK) distributed knowledge
gathering system to inform / challenge gov policy
assumptions iKnow futures project (EU)
crowdsourced foresight data analysis tools
Prediction markets - Forecasting World
Events Forecasting Ace (IARPA) IfTF
Foresight Engine - Massively Multi-player Online
Foresight Game (e.g. Catalysts for Change) Open
Foresight Project Future of Facebook
(crowdfunded project), off-shelf common network
technologies, transparent and replicate-able
Evolver global progress social network,
spores (local in person meetings), blends
distributive potential via localization /
embodiment FutureScaper (Noah Raford) large
scale participatory futures systems (IFF,
Cognitive Edge, Superflux), networked scenario
building
7
Key shifts
Funding from institutional to market to peer
funding dynamics, the most recent being
crowd-funding opportunities. Audience from
academic and policy circles, to corporate demand
for strategic foresight, to a global public
citizen sphere of interest. Legitimacy from
government commissions and academic institutions,
to market literature (book publishing), to peer
publics (wiki-everything) as arbiters of truth.
Instantiation from political jurisdictions,
to corporate polycentric boundaries, to highly
localized swarms.
8
Shifts 2
Replication - from state / gov. sanctioned, to
market led enterprises, to peer produced
projects. Participation from government or
academic experts, to corporate stakeholders, to
the broad public. Ownership from state
controlled information, to market property, to
global knowledge commons. Transparency from
town hall politics (pony express), to national
scandals (broadcast age), to a world of wiki
leaks (digital).
9
Design Space 4 modes of analysis
Instantiation (localization and
prefiguration) Replication (franchise and
rhizome) Openness (transparency and
participation) Control (ownership and the
commons).
10
Instantiation
New local network potentials, local instantiation
of a process Early net era ruptured connection
with place New localization where capacity to
network is creating physically embodied
connections Prefiguration means one persons
innovation becomes anothers in another part of
the world
11
Virtual and Physical
12
Replication
Franchise one org controls who can use and
replicate, set template (structure and
process) Rhizome no central control,
autonomous replication (e.g. spread of social
forums around the world) Franchise Millennium
Project, IFTF foresight engine, Shaping
Tomorrow Rhizomatic replication Open Foresight
Project (designed for replication)
13
Openness
Participation Transparency
14
Dimensions of participation
numbers - how many people does an open
participatory web project include, a local
community linked by a web network or tens of
thousands of people? depth - through the
process, at what part stage are participants
allowed to engage in, data sourcing, analysis,
interpretation, moderation, adjudication?
diversity - how diverse are the participants,
do they come from a variety of contexts, are a
variety values represented?
15
Three types of transparency
transparency/sousveillance - organizations being
open (or opened) to individuals (e.g.
Wikileaks) panopticity/surveillance -
individuals being open to organizations / publics
(e.g. Josh Harris work)13 (Timoner,
2004) authenticity - individuals being open to
individuals about themselves and each other
(e.g. Facebook )
16
Transparency of the foresight platform
17
Transparency of the foresight process
18
Control
Ownership - debates over intellectual property
(should it belong to someone or everyone?)
Shift from material abundance and immaterial
scarcity into era of immaterial abundance and
material scarcity (Michel Bauwens analysis)
push to develop knowledge commons (e.g. Creative
Commons, Copyleft)
19
Participation and Control
20
Design Space and Research and development
strategic pathways including scenario development
on the futures of AD current projects and
future prospects for building global foresight
commons collective intelligence / wisdom of
crowds foresight strategies connecting
anticipatory governance with AD and the
politicization of social futures network
foresight strategies to address sustainability
and social justice Issues replication and
re-localized, mobile and embodied forms of
foresight development publicly accessible and
transparent foresight activities
21
Open Foresight
An open foresight project
  • Shaping Tomorrow
  • Futrchat
  • IFTF
  • iknowfutures

22
The Design Space
  • 'Foresight in public
  • Transparent
  • Commons based output (public foresight)
  • Free or low cost social media (happily coincides
    with budget)
  • Replicable

Naked
  • 'Stickiness factor', being the ability to stick
    in the recipients mind and be "so memorable that
    it can create change, that it can spur someone to
    action.
  • The foresight experience
  • Interesting, challenging, memorable

Sticky
  • Future oriented
  • Informed by existing methods
  • Participation in more of the analysis/prospection
    work

Foresight Epidemics
The need for a foresight epidemic to help gain
movement on some of our most pressing issues.
 There should be epidemics which cover problem,
critical and epidemiological foresight work.
