Foresight 6.0: The New Generation of Technology Foresight

Cifci, Hasan
Yuksel, Nurdan
Futures studies have always been important for people to anticipate the future and take actions. Since technology is for society, Future oriented Technology Analyses (FTA) have been widely implemented based on different concepts through different dimensions. Foresight, one of the FTA, has evolved throughout its journey within its generations until today. In this article, foresight generations in the literature are put forth as grouped and the framework of new technology foresight generation as sixth generation (Foresight 6.0) is offered and detailed. Foresight 6.0 is evaluated on the focused dimensions, participating actors, economic bases and principles. The rising concepts of Industry 4.0, netocracy, cyberspace, biotechnology, ethical values and blurriness of the roles in economy are the primary factors in this new generation of foresight.

Comparative study of risk measures
Ekşi, Zehra; Körezlioğlu, Hayri; Department of Financial Mathematics (2005)
There is a little doubt that, for a decade, risk measurement has become one of the most important topics in finance. Indeed, it is natural to observe such a development, since in the last ten years, huge amounts of financial transactions ended with severe losses due to severe convulsions in financial markets. Value at risk, as the most widely used risk measure, fails to quantify the risk of a position accurately in many situations. For this reason a number of consistent risk measures have been introduced in...
RMARS: Robustification of multivariate adaptive regression spline under polyhedral uncertainty
Ozmen, Ayse; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2014-03-15)
Since, with increased volatility and further uncertainties, financial crises translated a high "noise" within data from financial markets and economies into the related models, recent years' events in the financial world have led to radically untrustworthy representations of the future. Hence, robustification started to attract more attention in finance. The presence of noise and data uncertainty raises critical problems to be dealt with on the theoretical and computational side. For immunizing against para...
Technology foresight and modeling: Turkish cybersecurity foresight 2040
Çifci, Hasan; Çakır, Serhat; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2019)
Foresight is a systematic and multidisciplinary process with proper methodology combinations for identifying technological, economic and social areas to prioritize investments and research to realize medium or long-term future strategies by using various resources from organizational to international level. Cybersecurity is the protection of cyber systems from cyber-attacks and providing integrity, confidentiality, and availability of those systems. In this thesis, information about technology foresight and...
Enabling Technologies and Architectures for Next-Generation Networking Capabilities
Demirpolat, Ahmed; Ergenç, Doğanalp; Öztürk, Eşref; Ayar, Yusuf; Onur, Ertan (IGI GLOBAL, 2018-10-01)
The future networks are expected to lead a hyper-connected society with the promise of high social and economic value. The goal is to solve today's network problems and provide satisfactory security. Thus, the future networks require a flexible infrastructure that is secure against cyberattacks. Software defined networking (SDN) can be considered as one of the building blocks of upcoming networking technologies. In this chapter, first, the limitations of today's networks are presented. Then, solutions to se...
Futurist thinking in urbanism: a retrospective & prospective view in the global context of transforming socio-economic structures
Efeoğlu, Hulusi Eren; Çalışkan, Olgu; Urban Design in City and Regional Planning Department (2018)
The idea of future has always emerged as a major concept for humanity. Each and every period of the civilizations, there has been always a motivation for people to manifest their ideal futures. In the context of urbanism, the intellectual capacity of utopian thinking has influenced most of the discussions on urbanism during the history. In this regard, destructive impacts of industrial revolutions have become the triggering forces to construct the ideal image of the future city. When the first industrial re...
