Visions of future technology can captivate, inspire and sometimes even polarize. However, one thing that often gets overlooked among the hype and debate is the all-important issue of how future technologies are actually going to be made: how they’re built and how they’re going to work. Or, to put it another way, we rarely ask what needs to happen for the future to happen?
In Architecture of Future Tech, Prasanna Pendse, Head of Technology for Thoughtworks India, explores how some of the most exciting and widely discussed innovations of the future are being made — with the help of leading industry figures at the forefront of technological change.
