At Inverse, we obsess over one question: What could happen next? To provide answers — and there are many — we search out emerging ideas, new technologies, and simmering trends as well as fearless innovators, designers, and thinkers. We’re compulsively curious not only because we’re fans of progress, but also because we want a glimpse of the future and the chance to better plan for and enjoy tomorrow. Scroll through our publication and you’ll find stories about neurology research next to criticism of Fetty Wap and reports into the future of genetically modified pumpkins. The topics we cover run the gamut, but our approach does not. We treat the events of the present as evidence we can use to form a not at all unified vision of the future. Our writers use our three verticals — entertainment, science+tech, and life+work — to chase the topics that interest them down a rabbit hole. We take a scientific approach to analyzing culture and a cultural approach to talking about science. Since our launch in August 2015, we’ve endeavored to analyze the world thoroughly — if not consistently. Our aim is to better understand tomorrow by examining today.
