When Technology becomes Alive
Every organism, starting from the simplest bacteria that we can not see with our eyes, is a complex system capable of adapting, learning, self-repair, self-organization and intelligent decision making, just to name a few. A true superhero compared to our highly efficient but specialized technologies. This gap has led to a recent development of smart and complex systems that try to make our technologies behave like natural organisms. In my presentation I will show what happens materials start to self-repair and self-cleaning, when robots are capable of autonomous movement and learning, when buildings behave like organisms. I will give you a peak of some of the cutting edge technologies and research, the rest is still to be imagined.
