Most recently: Science fiction and the future of science

Scientists and researchers increasingly value science fiction for its contributions to anticipating future scenarios. As part of its mission to explore where changes in science and science systems are leading us, the Centre for Science Futures sat down with six leading science fiction authors to seek their perspectives on how science can meet the many societal challenges we face in the next decades. This podcast series is in partnership with Nature.

Over six episodes, airing every Monday (starting 6 November 2023) this series will explore the authors’ creative processes, including their sources of inspiration for crafting realistic future scenarios, as well as their perspectives on various aspects of science and technology, such as climate change, food security, and the implications of artificial intelligence (AI).
