Knowing and thinking have become precarious, it seems. Every millisecond trading algorithms calculate uncertain ‚futures‘ on the basis of previous events that trigger current reactions to project more unstable futures; big-data analyses induce, evaluate or prevent events, before they happen; climatology forecasts what will probably occur to tackle problems of future economies and ecologies which in turn affect present behavior; current theory production, contemporary art and critical design create and contemplate possible worlds in order to detect utopian and dystopian potentials in the ubiquity of prognoses and calculations.
