The morning session of the day allowed Imperial academics to identify and elucidate the important discoveries of their own areas – intelligent systems, minituarisation, regenerative medicine, and neurotechnology.
- Professor Nilay Shah: Sustainable Cities and Intelligent Systems (PDF)
- Professor David Klug: Science for Health – the Revolution is Coming (PDF)
- Professor Molly Stevens: Regeneration (PDF)
- Dr Simon Schultz: Neurotechnology – the Future of the Human Experience (PDF)
In the afternoon, Futorials (future tutorials) brought Imperial academics and delegates together to explore the content of the morning’s Foresight sessions. The groups considered how current technological breakthroughs might evolve over time and the impact that this might have on how companies operate in the future through a series of scenarios.
- (Intelligent) Cities: how will we live and work? (PDF)
- Cognitive Systems: the way we will think and interact? (PDF)
- Health science: your life in your hands? (PDF)
Later in the afternoon, Professors David Gann and David Fisk spoke on themes which drew together the divergent areas discussed earlier in the day.
