Abstract [en]

This report outlines trends, challenges, and opportunities relating to the future of Smart Spaces and ICT-mediated human communication, as observed from within one of the EIT ICT Labs focus areas: Mediating Presence, during 2012-2013. The study should be seen as an initial and open-ended exploration that seeks to contribute a productive point of departure for more ambitious work, which will be undertaken across the Smart Spaces Action Line and using the Innovation Radar platform in future years. In particular, the business potential of mediating presence is the focus of a forthcoming 2014 Foresight Technical Report.

As a foresight, Mediated Futures identifies and exposes future themes with high innovation potential relating to presence technologies, using a time frame roughly six months to five years ahead. Its purpose is to create a common outlook on the future of ICT and to establish a shared vocabulary and fruitful methodologies for future strategy thinking across the EIT ICT Labs nodes and partner organisations.

A series of workshops and other collaborative activities have been organised within the Mediating Presence activity over the last 15 months. The pivotal output is a series of one-pagers, short fictional texts, three of which can be encountered on the following pages. Tentative and possibly provocative, these are slogan-based descriptions of future scenarios that serve to trigger new perspectives. A total of six clusters of topics were covered by one-pagers:

Data doubles

 New magic

 Luddites

 Socialites

 Future of WorkA working future

 Spaces and things
