The Institute For the Future (IFF) is a cross-disciplinary research institute at the University of Nicosia (UNIC) founded to explore the hypothesis that exponential technologies will cause rapidly accelerating societal change over the coming decades.
Technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence are highly disruptive, even individually. However, as they reach commercial maturity and start becoming synergistic, they are expected to have compounding effects on the economy, social structures, legal systems, income distribution, governance, education, and warfare – and raise fundamental questions on how future society is organized.
The goal of IFF is to push students, faculty (at our University and others), policy-makers and business leaders to prepare for these changes and aim for societally beneficial outcomes. The Institute’s mission is interdisciplinary by nature and it works across Schools and Departments to support academic programs, research, training and conferences.
