Technology and future scenarios.

All disruptive technologies have some characteristics in common that hold their potential. You will find out how to recognize them and how they impact existing systems.

An overview of the most innovative companies, start-ups, and products in the field of virtual and augmented reality will open your eyes to the future’s possible scenarios.

How does a computer recognize a face? How far can this capacity of machines be pushed? What today seems evident to us was merely unthinkable until a few decades ago.

In the past few years, scientists have revolutionized our ability to rewrite the genetic code to eliminate diseases or give creatures whole new traits. Today, it is possible to modify the genome of any living being with surprising ease.

Competing with the most advanced forms of artificial intelligence, enhancing memory and processing capacity of the human brain, creating digital copies of ourselves, creating a network of connections between humans and machines.

The process leading to the human colonization of space has already started. Soon, human stationing will be operating on the Moon and Mars. There is a turning point in human history and the start of new forms of economy and business potential.

The future will not be defined by a predominant technology. You will discover the incredible scenarios that the convergence of technologies could open in the coming years.

I am a phd in architecture with a strong interest in space design and this course maybe will be the starting point for a focus research! everything was so clear and direct. I also enjoyed the bibliography, although I would have preferred a pdf from which to copy references. Thank you!
Pierpaolo D'Amici
So inspiring!

I still have some classes to follow, but after reaching "Planetary outpost elements configuration" it is already the time to give 5 stars. I appreciate so much the multidisciplinary perspective of Barbara Imhof and René Waclavicek, where the operational aspects are perfectly harmonized with the humanistic ones.

wonderful contents , truly revived my interest in space and astronomy once again .
Gustavo Vilches
A solid introduction
Read More
With a topic of such depth and potential branching, the lectures manage to compile a solid and clear map of the current state and future development of the field. The first-hand knowledge of the lecturers comes clear in every presentation and the result is always enticing and instructive. The overall experience is great and you really want to come back for more. The only thing that can use some improvement is the delivery of the presentations (Graphics, video & speech, transitions) to avoid distractions from the fantastic content. Thank you for a stimulating experience. Hope to see you again soon!
