Vision of the Future

Synthetic Biology

Innovative approaches for engineering new biological systems or redesigning existing ones to deliver new solutions that address global healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing, and environmental challenges.

AI-Driven Security Solutions

Development of security solutions powered by Artificial Intelligence that leverage technology with unmatched scale to deliver comprehensive cybersecurity platforms for enterprises, businesses, and governments.

Self-Driving Vehicles

Software that turns a vehicle into an intelligent machine including perception, localization and mapping, planning and control, driver monitoring, and natural language processing.

AI for Space Exploration

Computer technology has enabled us to land on the Moon and send unmanned spacecraft to explore all the planets of our Solar System, including Saturn’s moon, Titan, and even a comet. AI may help us explore other solar systems and galaxies, and the advocates of super-AI believe that it can propel human intelligence into the cosmos in the form of silicon digital devices, escaping the limits of space exploration by vulnerable carbon-based human beings. Ultimately, this breakout will sweep into the galaxy, with intelligent machines allowing for increasingly powerful space transportation vehicles to transport even more miraculous minds and bionic bodies into the ether.

Life Sciences and Medical Technology

Development of new drug compounds, vaccines, and biotechnologies, and the construction of 3D biosensors in advanced medical diagnostics, operating rooms, autonomous medical robots, and augmented-reality data that help surgeons improve outcomes for patients. This can help solve the urgent need for new diagnostic and treatment follow-up tools, which allow for the early detection of pathologies and the continuous monitoring of physiological responses to specific therapies.

Artificial Intelligence

Creating AI that uses the simulation of human intelligence in machines and is programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. Such machines exhibit traits associated with a human mind like learning and problem-solving.

What does it mean to be human in the present day and age?

The upgrading of humans may follow any of three paths: biological engineering, human-machine engineering, and the engineering of non-organic beings.

Biological engineering starts with the insight that we are far from realizing the full potential of organic bodies in the present day. Bionic engineering will go a step further, merging the organic body with non-organic devices such as bionic hands, artificial eyes, or millions of nano-robots that will navigate our bloodstream, diagnose problems, and repair damage. Such bionics could enjoy abilities far beyond those of any organic body.

Today, humans improve machines; in the future, machines will improve machines, potentially much faster than humans could have done—which is the fascinating and controversial idea of singularity.
