Change is coming and it's going to affect humans right where we live. By 2050, city living is going to look very different from what we know today. Across the globe, cities are going green and getting smarter. Artificial intelligence is playing a bigger role in our lives every day and the nomad generation is redefining what 'home' is.
In these pages we explore future cities all over the world. In Nigeria, we see how students are making their cities smarter. In London, a charming AI wants to help you find love. In Australia, a drowned Dutch city finds a new home. And in California, charismatic cities don't need us to run them at all.
The future visions in this anthology come from nine of today's premiere science fiction writers and futurists. These examples are futurist storytelling at its finest, because they examine not only the technologies that will affect our future, but how people will learn and grow and interact with those technologies. Come, let's take a look at our future.
