NC State University, CSC
In this talk, I will first give an overview of Anticipatory Thinking. Anticipatory thinking entails preparing in advance for problems and opportunities. It is different from prediction because anticipatory thinking involves preparing for future events instead of simply predicting what might happen. After that, I will describe Futures Wheel, a method to apply anticipatory thinking. Following that, I will describe a tool that we are currently working on that will enable city planners to apply anticipatory thinking in the context of smart cities. Although the development of the tool is at its initial stage, I will present the features that we plan to implement in it. I will also seek feedback and suggestions from the attendees at the talk regarding these features and any other features they might like to see in the tool.
