What happened? Equitism is a new model for society that could address wealth and income inequality. American serial entrepreneur and investor, Marc Lore, has embarked on his biggest venture yet – Telosa, a city he is building from scratch to test Equitism. The proposed city will be "open, fair and inclusive" and aims to address the current disparity that has only increased the gaps in wealth and income inequality.
Why is this important and how will this impact people and our society? Equitism is important because it has the potential to address wealth and income inequality, which is a major issue in our society. If successful, Equitism could be a model for other cities and eventually help close the gap between the rich and the poor.
Of course, the source of the gap between rich and poor is much more fundamental, and we must address these root causes first in order to make progress in this direction. Equitism, on the other hand, does not take away from the conversation about this issue's relevance.
“To be clear, we’re not building a private city or a political utopia. Nor is this a project that has any sort of return for us personally. But we’re incredibly proud that we’re putting people at its centre. We’ve started with a mission and a set of values — open, fair, inclusive — and will be taking demonstrable steps to live these values better than any other city in the world,” Lore Lore said.
The city will have an efficient water system that is rainwater-independent, autonomous cars as part of a collective and active transportation system to reduce commuting time, a high-quality education system, diverse housing choices accessible to everyone through inclusive zoning, and affordable and sustainable mixed-income housing; safe public spaces with native vegetation; and more, according to Telosa's developers.

Embracing the advancements of technology and AI can enhance our humanity. We can focus on developing our unique talents and skills by automating mundane tasks and freeing up our time. As humans, we can adapt and learn, allowing us to evolve and stay relevant in a rapidly changing world constantly.
Organizations will need to be more fluid, dynamic, and adaptable: the ability to change and adjust in response to new situations and environments. We are on the cusp of a new era of organizations, ones that are more fluid and agile and which behave like swarms we see in nature.
In the future, 3D printing and generative design will allow for products to be designed in a more decentralized manner, and production will take place closer to the customer and fully on-demand. 3D printing technology will also allow for more customization and personalization of products.
The agricultural industry is ripe for disruption. Robotics, AI, and IoT are all technologies that have the potential to radically transform the way we grow food. In combination with vertical farming, these technologies could increase the efficiency and quality of agricultural products.
A human-centered society is one that puts people first and where technology is used to unite and empower people. It is a society that values biological life and dignity above all else. It is a society that recognizes the importance of human relationships and works to strengthen them. In a human-centered society, all members of the community are valued and treated with respect.
The future of healthcare is here. New technologies like AI, IoT, big data, and smart sensors make it possible to become the CEO of your own health. Imagine that your phone can listen to your voice and AI algorithms can detect small nuances in the tone of your voice that indicate specific diseases.
