The COVID-19 pandemic unexpectedly shattered our world’s once linear, smooth, and predictable trajectory. This black swan event has changed human history, triggering a massive global crisis and dragging us into a situation not seen for one hundred years. The virus and its variants have infected hundreds of millions of people worldwide and killed millions; it has dramatically impacted the political and economic patterns of the current times.
How do we figure out the many changes in our new, unpredictable world? Which directions are necessary to re-establish a safe, peaceful, and promising future for humanity?
In Future Forward, author Dr. Kevin Chen provides rigorous and coherent content to help readers sort out the clues, re-understand the world amidst the current and complex information, and make predictions about the development of related technologies, society, business, and leadership needed in the post-COVID years.
