Technology: What's next?


Technological innovations are omnipresent. How will they shape the way we work and live now and for years to come? Are we standing at the eve of a revolution, or will the changes be less disruptive? And what to do with the continuous, voluminous and heterogeneous stream of data that is generated?

College 1 - Industry 4.0: The Future is Nano

Thu 21 March 2019 20:00 - 22:00

Eén nanometer staat in verhouding tot een voetbal als diezelfde voetbal staat tot onze planeet. Maar klein is het nieuwe groot in de wereld van morgen. Dat nanotechnologie voor veel opschudding gaat zorgen staat vast, maar de potentiële implicaties zijn eindeloos: van quantumcomputers tot de sportindustrie, en van voedselproductie tot de gezondheidszorg. Wat kunnen we verwachten? Staan we aan de vooravond van een industriële revolutie 4.0?

College 2 - The AI Revolution

Wed 10 April 2019 20:00 - 22:00

Artificial Intelligence is already writing news articles and weather reports without readers noticing. It controls our financial transactions and media streaming services. The AI revolution - with all its futurist claims - is taking place right now, but has a far more subtle impact on our lives than is often suggested. The coming decade will see rapid improvements in predictive and recognizant robots and other technologies, enabling integration of deep learning algorithms in all facets of our daily environment. How can we best prepare for- and benefit from this?

College 3 - Traffic and Mobility: Disruptive Innovation?

Thu 23 May 2019 20:00 - 22:00

Our ways of travelling are changing fundamentally. Innovations in the automotive industry can potentially make traffic quicker, safer and cleaner than ever before. The economy, political changes and the climate impact mobility greatly. Meanwhile, a shift in mobility will influence branches like infrastructure, e-shopping and teleworking. How will we manage and regulate these disruptive changes of transport? And how will the smart car influence the management of network traffic dynamics in an increasingly urbanized society?
