Dubai Future Academy Hosts Future Design: Knowledge, Technology And Prosperity Session
(6 August 2018)
This session is a continuation of the Pioneer Series initiative


Dubai Future Academy organised a session entitled ‘Future design: knowledge, technology and prosperity’. The session highlighted the importance of reassessing the knowledge systems and tools adopted by individuals and organisations around the world, as well as the key attributes of societal value that individuals add to their communities by anticipating future challenges and finding effective solutions.

This session is a continuation of the Pioneer Series initiative, organised by Dubai Future Academy, to spread and share knowledge and provide participants with skills needed for the future. It also aims to raise awareness on the importance of future technologies and innovative initiatives.

The session was led by Dr. Clark Miller, Associate Director for Faculty – School for the Future of Innovation in Society and Director of the Center for Energy and Director of the Center for Nanotechnology in Society at Arizona State University, in the presence of students, entrepreneurs, professionals and those interested in the field of building the future. Dr. Miller stressed that investing in promoting new knowledge and techniques on a large scale is the route to a prosperous future for contemporary societies.

A different strategy for designing the future

Dr. Miller discussed two strategies on designing the future. The first strategy is based on the idea that knowledge has been created and not discovered, and that organisations must adopt a more ambitious strategy to design and organise knowledge systems that create and analyse ideas and decisions that create our future.

The second strategy that Dr. Miller discussed is based on the idea that technologies are more than just machines – they are the systems which we live by – and therefore, communities must develop a future design technology that is consistent with their ethics, values and principles.

Innovative ideas for designing the future

During the session, Dr. Miller also discussed questions that motivated the attendees to redesign the ways they anticipate the future and find solutions to pressing challenges. The attendees shared their opinions and questions to enrich the discussion and make the session valuable and interactive. This supports the efforts of Dubai Future Academy to be a point of acquaintance among the pioneers of various sectors and members of society.

“I’m happy to take part in Dubai Future Academy's Pioneer Series initiative. This initiative allowed me to connect with entrepreneurs, young professionals, officials and non-profit leaders to highlight how future technologies can be deployed in ways that are consistent with community values and long-term goals,” said Dr. Miller.

The Pioneer Series initiative is one of Dubai Future Academy’s initiatives, part of Dubai Future Foundation (DFF). It has attracted over 700 participants since its launch. The new season discusses new challenges and themes through dialogue and knowledge sessions aimed at providing future leaders with the necessary skills to keep pace with rapid developments and move towards the future. This reflects the Academy's vision to be the knowledge hub for those creating the future.

Sessions and sharing knowledge

During Ramadan, the Pioneer Series initiative hosted officials, decision-makers, ministers, and experts in various fields, including HE Omar Bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence and Deputy Managing Director of Dubai Future Foundation, HE Mariam bint Mohammed Saeed Hareb Al Mehairi, Minister of State for Future Food Security, HE Dr. Ahmad Belhoul Al Falasi,  Minister of State for Higher Education, and HE Saeed Al Eter, Director General Public Diplomacy Office, Ministry of Cabinet Affairs and Future,  along with other esteemed guest speakers and pioneers.

The next season of the Pioneer Series initiative will be held in October and November 2018. For more information, please visit the official website:
