Fredagskollokvium: The Present Future
Lluis Mas, PhD student, ITA
We are leaving an epoch of significant changes driven by the development of technology and science. This is not new,
but now these changes are happening at a pace that makes the future we imagined yesterday already existing today.
I will review some of the latest breakthroughs, especially in the fields of aerospace engineering and artificial intelligence,
and the impact of these on the future of humankind. Finally, I will discuss what should be done to avoid a bad ending and
whether we are ready to accomplish such an enormous task.
