Note the final phrase in their Vision: “to create the foundation for a new operating system for humanity”
Alongside their excellent predictive track record,
the recognition that humanity needs a new ‘operating system’,
not just cooler technology, separates ReThinkX from other think-tanks.
From their website:
What We Do
RethinkX is an independent think tank that analyzes and forecasts the speed and scale of technology-driven disruption and its implications across society. We produce impartial, data-driven analyses that identify pivotal choices to be made by investors, business, policy and civic leaders.
To facilitate a robust global conversation about the threats and opportunities of technology-driven disruptions, and highlight choices that could lead to a more equitable, healthy, resilient and stable society.
RethinkX’s framework, models and analyses help leading decision makers in finance, business, technology and government make better informed decisions to create the foundation for a new operating system for humanity.
About the project
We focus on understanding the dynamics and the systemic nature of disruption across key market sectors.
RethinkX uses the Seba Technology Disruption Framework™ to capture the interactions between technology, business models and market forces to forecast the scope, speed and scale of technology-driven disruption and its implications across key market sectors.

We are on the cusp of the fastest, deepest, most consequential transformation of human civilization in history, a transformation every bit as significant as the move from foraging to cities and agriculture 10,000 years ago. During the 2020s, key technologies will converge to completely disrupt the five foundational sectors that underpin the global economy, and with them every major industry in the world today. In information, energy, food, transportation, and materials, costs will fall by a 10x or more, while production processes an order of magnitude more efficient will use 90% fewer natural resources with 10x-100x less waste. The knock-on effects for society will be as profound as the extraordinary possibilities that emerge. For the first time in history, we could overcome poverty easily. Access to all our basic needs could become a fundamental human right. But this is just one future outcome. The alternative could see our civilization collapse into a new dark age. Which path we take depends on the choices we make, starting today. The stakes could not be higher.
