Technologies for achieving greater personal, enterprise, and community resilience have been steadily on the rise due to macroscopic shifts in climate change, societal disruptions, and digital transformation. In the inaugural #ResilienceTech Report, Maeda highlights the growing business ecosystem being built by a new breed of technologists around the world who intend to bring greater resilience to individuals, organizations, and entire countries. Beyond techies, this report will appeal to a broad audience due to Covid-19’s impact on every individual’s sense of vulnerability. The Resilience Tech Report builds upon the CX and Design in Tech Reports (2015 - 2021) which correctly predicted: 1/ the centrality of design in digital consumer and enterprise products, 2/ the paradigm of remote work and its equalizing effect, 3/ industry shifts to AI/ML technology as intrinsically needing more inclusive design.
