Today, we delve deep into understanding the role of a futurist in our increasingly digital and Artificial Intelligence-driven world.

  • Q: Can you elucidate what a Futurist does?

A: A futurist crafts forecasts grounded in data to anticipate the trajectory of emerging technologies, providing valuable insights into our future landscape.

  • Q: How did your journey from model to entrepreneur to futurist unfold?

A: My initial foray into the corporate world left me feeling disconnected from my authentic self. A serendipitous scouting opportunity as a model led me to a revelation: my background in technology and business could intersect with the creative realm. This epiphany empowered me to bridge the gap between tech enthusiasts and the fashion world, converging all my diverse interests.

  • Q: As a futurist, you present a nuanced perspective on AI’s impact. Could you elaborate on that?

A: Absolutely. There’s an imperative for transparent dialogue between technologists and society to demystify the real risks and benefits of AI. While Hollywood often sensationalizes AI’s capabilities and fears, the reality is more grounded. Advanced AI technologies like Google Maps or Netflix are already seamlessly integrated into our daily lives. However, we must acknowledge and address the genuine concerns surrounding AI, from ethical implications to the urgent need for regulatory frameworks.

  • Q: How is AI reshaping the fashion industry?

A: AI is revolutionizing fashion by optimizing supply chains and data analytics. Yet, its integration raises ethical dilemmas and potentially exacerbates disparities in access and representation within the industry. As machines increasingly synthesize creativity, we must reflect on our evolving relationship with human creativity and technological progress.

  • Q: How do you envision AI impacting content creators and social media influencers?

A: AI has catalyzed the creator economy, democratizing the world of entertainment and offering innovative tools for creators to thrive.

  • Q: What are your thoughts on digital fashion and its implications for artisans, like those we support at OSAY?

A: While digital fashion presents exciting opportunities, it won’t entirely overshadow the value of human craftsmanship and experience. As society increasingly prioritizes wellness and longevity, there’s a growing appreciation for authentic human experiences. It’s essential to strike a balance and ensure technology complements, rather than replaces, human artistry.

  • Q: What lies ahead for you in your journey?

A: I am committed to democratizing technology, making it accessible and comprehensible for all. Inclusive participation is pivotal to shaping a future that truly represents and benefits society at large.

  • Q: How can we foster global inclusivity in these technological conversations?

A: We must address the digital divide that leaves a significant portion of the global population offline. Every individual deserves equitable access to the digital realm. As we navigate the information age, it’s crucial to ensure diverse voices are represented in shaping our collective future.
