Abstract: Imagine that one day we have reached technological singularity – the point when technological development has outpaced human development. The question of whether machine intelligence is on a par with human intelligence has long been answered. Does this constellation place human fate at the mercy of machines, or is there still room to maneuver? This paper’s objective is to propose a research design to facilitate an interdisciplinary discourse on our digital futures. The research proposal aims to trigger and explore an interdisciplinary discourse on the designability of our digital future based on immersive scenarios. The domain of leadership in an organizational setting serves as an example that shall enable us to frame and discuss “possible futures” in a particular sphere of life. The main contribution of the immersive scenarios shall be that all experts are able to live through and comment on the same experiences. Based on this common frame of reference, they are able to identify challenges and raise critical questions from the perspective of their disciplines. Compiling, correlating and analyzing those expressed and shared views shall set the stage for design. In order to define the scope for design the extracted requirements and restrictions are to be formulated and provide starting points to frame the evolution of our digital lives proactively and deliberately. Subsequently, the research design - validated and improved based on the quality of the discourse triggered - could be widened in scope (e.g., applied to other domains) or extended to a wider audience to enable further research.
