"Future Influencer" is an unconventional sci-fi adventure where humanity and AI join forces to paint images of the future. Each episode of this light-hearted journey will tickle your imagination and offer a much-needed dose of fun in our ever-evolving digital age. So, why not come along for the ride?

Many in the resistance possessed exceptional skills; they could anticipate events before they occurred. Years of experience meant a seasoned nurse could predict a patient’s bad day with a glance. Firefighters and military personnel seemed to possess an uncanny sense of when to retreat and take cover. It was almost a premonition - avoiding the unpleasant before its onset, a sensation highlighted when algorithms interviewed these individuals post-disaster. They could not rationalize their knowledge, only that a specific course of action felt necessary before a catastrophe occurred.

This intuition frustrated the machines; they wanted to be able to do the same. However, humans were different; we didn’t consciously register the clamminess of a patient’s skin or a slight shift in dew point on a fire ground. We relegated these complex perceptual tasks to our subconscious, focusing our conscious efforts on formulating a response: fetch the crash cart, or it’s time to evacuate.
