In 2048 Farming People

21m | May 18, 2023

The era of data farming is taking off. People can make money participating in being farmed for data about people to be used to develop AI. Three lives are followed: Jane, a party fem, Ernesto, a casualty of the media attack featured in an earlier episode In 2042 the First AI Weapon, and Madge, a cunning spin thrift.

Many of the characters in this project appear in future episodes.

Using storytelling to place you in a time period, this series takes you, year by year, into the future. From 2040 to 2195. If you like emerging tech, eco-tech, futurism, perma-culture, apocalyptic survival scenarios, and disruptive science, sit back and enjoy short stories that showcase my research into how the future may play out. 

This is Episode 33 of the podcast "In 20xx Scifi and Futurism." The companion site is where you can find a timeline of the future, descriptions of future development, and printed fiction.
