The Future Laboratory's chief strategy officer Tom Savigar and editor-in-chief Martin Raymond discuss The Convergence Economy, one of the three Macro Trends that will be presented at LS:N Global's Spring/Summer 2014 Trend Briefing in New York City, The Polarity Paradox.

Data and the physical internet are enabling convergence between formerly disparate things in a new era of ubiquitous blurring. Convergence between the senses as algorithms translate data into visuals, visuals into touch and sound into objects. Convergence between datasets – objects that talk to each other and which use data about us to think ahead on our behalf. And finally, convergence between disparate fields, such as gaming and employment, fitness and storytelling, retail and weather, and analytics and cooking.

The Polarity Paradox takes place on 27 March 2014
At TimesCenter, 242 W 41st St, NYC, 10036
