Life In 2020: Visions Of The Future From The World's Leading Thinkers (VIDEO)

First Posted: 06/09/10 06:12 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 05:05 PM ET

What will life be like in 2020?

To begin to answer this question, Ericsson interviewed 20 thinkers--including professors, inventors, 'futurists,' and digital experts--and probed their vision of the future.

Ericsson explains the project:

In 2020 - Shaping Ideas, we ask 20 thinkers to share their view on the drivers of the future and how connectivity is changing the world.

They describe a future where a growing population faces never before seen challenges and opportunities; where digital natives will shape their lives and the enterprises they work for, and where technology could create a global golden age.

We believe it is important to share our knowledge about the future. If we do, the future might not be a place we are going to, but a place we create.
