Ford's Sheryl Connelly predicts less is often more in blending tech and cars - Business Insider [cached]

Sheryl Connelly is Ford's futurist. ichael Seto

At this year's IGNITION conference, attendees got a glimpse of the future.
No, we didn't pass around crystal balls at Business Insider's flagship conference. Instead, Ford Motor Co.'s corporate futurist Sheryl Connelly sat down to talk to senior editor Cadie Thompson.
Speaking to Business Insider before IGNITION, Connelly said her job description doesn't really include predicting the future - rather, she works on helping the people at Ford to imagine different future possibilities, even ones that disrupt the status quo. The position is crucial, seeing as innovations at motor companies like Ford typically take three to five years to hit the road.
"If you want to be seen as a true innovator, you've got to take on the responsibility of imagining a future that no one else has imagined," Connelly said.
That's where Ford's yearly trend report comes in. For the past five years, the company has put out a fascinating report highlighting major trends on the horizon for Ford's market. They're often dead on target.
Connelly discussed the first trend Ford published in the 2012 report: "Trust is the new black."
"In many ways, it feels more relevant today than when we talked about it in 2012," she said. "Right now, if you look around the world, there are great discussions over what is truth."
However, for Connelly, this year's most intriguing trend is "tech spiral."
"'Tech spiral' recognizes that these digital devices and constant connectivity have made our lives better in immeasurable ways," Connelly said.
Connelly says this report might encourage car companies to avoid cramming cars with every tech resource imaginable.
