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
