In this episode, 5 news stories that make us think more than ever about a future full of possibilities:
(1). Taxing Robots. An in-depth look at Bill Gates' proposal to tax robots, in light of a new study that confirms the merits of the option, but only in the short term. I'll explain why.
(2). Floating solar power plant. A 13,000-panel, 6 million kw-hours-per-year solar power plant built entirely on water becomes operational in Singapore.
(3). No more mergers. A U.S. senator introduces a bill to prohibit companies over a certain size from acquiring smaller players or merging with each other. I'll tell you the pros and cons of the bill.
(4). Fighting Alzheimer's. A new project aims to share knowledge among researchers scattered around the world, but also to address the issue with CRISPR technology and pluripotent stem cells. Will this be the one?
(5). Nuclear Yacht. An eccentric entrepreneur designs a ship for research and conservation of marine environments, based on a molten salt nuclear reactor. Genius or madness?
