Future in a Nutshell – Future for All

Recent years have been marked by very many dynamic technical and scientific developments, all of them with a high potential to change our world, the way we think, the way we work, the way we do business.

Digitalization is often used as the overall term for these trends, which go as far as robotics and autonomous mobility, Internet of Things and smart environments or AI, machine learning and digital assistants. The new Ars Electronica program Future in a Nutshell is a special and unique opportunity to get an introduction and overview of these game-changing new technologies—understandable to everybody yet presented by selected experts from these fields.
