The English version of the weekly episode of The Future Of.
One. Augmented humans, a nice little fairy tale we tell ourselves to avoid thinking about the long-term consequences of artificial intelligence.
Two. Dogs, cancer, and AI. That is, how an algorithm learns from the ability of dogs to recognize tumors, to bring this ability to our smartphones in the future.
Three. Electric tankers. No, that's not nonsense. A new generation of electric ships is hitting the market, though for now ironically they also serve to transport fossil fuels.
Four. Ingenuity. The small helicopter drone accompanying the Perseverance rover to Mars will revive the Wright brothers' dream, 120 years later and 200 million miles away.
Five. Blockchain Town. Continues the project of an American tycoon to build from scratch, in the desert, a city based on blockchain. Genius or madness?
