As technology reshapes the way we work at warp speed, we need to change training methodologies. How do we prepare the next generation for jobs that haven’t yet been invented? What kind of skillsets will they need, when machines can do what humans do? What kind of tech training do they need today to be ready for the future workplace? And would it mean totally rethinking education to encourage creative problem finding and solving? To explore these questions, we look at schools and startups who are rethinking education to learn and explore the new world of robotics, AI and machine learning.
From drones that perform surveys for agriculture to mobile telepresence robots used for security, see why many robotics suppliers are expanding their businesses into robot-as-a-service (RaaS) business models.
Blockchain has been referred to as the most important technological innovation since the internet. Delving beyond obvious use-cases (such as enabling cryptocurrency transactions and smart contracts), explore the unexpected and practical applications of blockchain in five major industries and see the impact it has on each one.
Get up close to polar bears, immerse yourself in the world of whales, and head into the unexplored earth of Greenland, all made possible thanks to virtual reality (VR). Embark on a journey with National Geographic Explorer Mike Libecki and hear why VR has become such an important tool for conservation.
In a first of it’s kind, West Virginia will become the first state to allow digital voting by blockchain. If this pilot is successful, could it be the key to solving current barriers to voting such as mobile-impaired seniors or workers who can’t take leave on election day? What impact would this have on future elections?
How does artificial intelligence actually work? What are the pitfalls of this technology that we need to know? Explore the complex nature of this ‘black box’ technology as we break down what artificial intelligence really means.
