    My article about a personal future simulation system published in Futures Journal
    Project: Polytopia


    My full-length article "FutureSelf: Emerging digitized life patterns and a personal future simulation system" was just published in acknowledged Futures, The journal of policy, planning and futures studies (Volume 42, Issue 9, November 2010, Pages 981-994). The article concentrates on the concept and design framework of a personal future simulation system that enables the creation of personal micro-future scenarios and augmented futures using personal digital data.

    The Abstract

    Unique information sources, available and accessible in digital networked environments, can be used as a data set for the extrapolation of an individual's potential futures. Based on an interactive analysis process, a carefully crafted system using artificial intelligence, data mining processes and behavior adaptive features can generate contextualized interactive personal future simulations in the form of interconnected micro-future scenarios. Micro-future scenarios provide context-sensitive information, alternative future paths and recommendations based on an individual's personal circumstances and her environment. The emerging future narrative can be delivered effectively by using different communication channels and methods in digital environments. The system aims to enhance an individual's awareness of the consequences of her existence by connecting her personal and social actions to a wider social, cultural, political, economical and ecological context.
