The Future Talks

Thinking about the future, believing in progress… it sounds timeless, but it is a fairly new idea that only became acceptable in the course of the 18th century. 6 short lectures cover 6 different aspects of future thinking. From the emergence of the 'improvable human being' via concrete applications with Artificial Intelligence for the management of traffic infrastructure and architecture to ethical questions about robotics. And what can we learn from science fiction?
