Griffith Review 64: The New Disruptors takes a wide-ranging look at the technological upheavals and innovations that define the way we live today. But what about the people driving these disruptions – how do they see our rapidly changing world? Taking Julianne Schultz’s opening essay ‘Move very fast and break many things’ and Elise Bohan’s ‘On becoming posthuman’ as starting points, Griffith Review asked three individuals from three very different disrupted and disruptive industries about their work and its implications.

In the short interviews collected here, medical professional Dr Dinesh Palipana, NASA astrophysicist Jessie Christiansen and Yunus Social Business Centre co-director Ingrid Burkett explain how they see disruption in their fields and how it might allow us to navigate an uncertain future.
