Book Description

June 15 2011 Synthesis Lectures on Computer Science
Science fiction is the playground of the imagination. If you are interested in science or fascinated with the future then science fiction is where you explore new ideas and let your dreams and nightmares duke it out on the safety of the page or screen. But what if we could use science fiction to do more than that? What if we could use science fiction based on science fact to not only imagine our future but develop new technologies and products? What if we could use stories, movies and comics as a kind of tool to explore the real world implications and uses of future technologies today? Science Fiction Prototyping is a practical guide to using fiction as a way to imagine our future in a whole new way. Filled with history, real world examples and conversations with experts like best selling science fiction author Cory Doctorow, senior editor at Dark Horse Comics Chris Warner and Hollywood science expert Sidney Perkowitz, Science Fiction Prototyping will give you the tools you need to begin designing the future with science fiction. The future is Brian David Johnson's business. As a futurist at Intel Corporation, his charter is to develop an actionable vision for computing in 2021. His work is called "future casting"-using ethnographic field studies, technology research, trend data, and even science fiction to create a pragmatic vision of consumers and computing.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting July 3 2013
By tmb-ingville - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
An interesting call for the connection between science fact and fiction to be amped up. The author wants sci-fi writers to more closely base their stories on emerging science and for scientists to respond to the real world implications that are explored in the stories. The constant stream of typos, misspellings and grammatical errors nearly drove me insane.

4.0 out of 5 stars Confirmation March 12 2013
By Smelly Stain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you've thought our collective Hollywood consciousness is shaping our future rejoice in the confirmation here. Johnson gives us easy to understand answers and framework for creating your own SF prototype with a light touch and friendly attitude. While I may not agree with HAL losing his mind so much as succumbing to evil I have become an Assimov nut and look forward to examining and creating a new future with bright skies and peaceful AI interactions. Is AI even artificial???? Keep pushing
