Dinner with Chef Watson

Last week we had the pleasure to dine under the supervision of the world’s latest and perhaps most topical masterchef, Chef Watson. Knowing over 10.000 recipes, the superstar chef invited 50 guests over for the first Neo-Futurist Dinner at Mediamatic in Amsterdam to enjoy a six-course multi-sensory vegan dinner extravaganza, and we put it to the test. Did we mention Watson is a computer from IBM?

Pyramid of Technology Delivery Delayed

We recently celebrated the launch of our Pyramid of Technology workshop-in-a-box. With that, our toolkit became available for pre-order so that you could organize a session by yourself. “Delivery from mid-July” we said. Little did we know, the cargo clearing operations of 17 shipping container terminals got hacked on Tuesday, June 27 – including the Maersk terminal in Rotterdam – causing a delayed delivery of our beloved boxes! Once again this shows the importance to consider how we, humans, have created the technosphere; it is our next nature, and it is wild and unpredictable as ever…

Robot Librarians Instruct Young Generations

In our rapidly changing digital world, what does the future of young generations look like? And how do they perceive such developments? With the ReadICTed to Robots project, the library of the Dutch province Gelderland-South aims to encourage information and communication technologies (ICT) and digital knowledge in education. To achieve this goal, the organization decided to employ two social robots, Bibi and Robin, to work in the library. Students in secondary education will be taught to interact with robots in order to increase their knowledge and digital skills.

Robotic Tarzan Controls Crops

With an growing world population, we will have to change the ways we produce food in order to feed everyone. The employment of robotics for food production and agriculture is one approach the problem. Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology developed a robot that mimics a two handed animal, the sloth. What inspired them was not the laziness sloths are usually known for, but the way they swing from branch to branch. The task of this robot is to help farmers to control their crops more efficiently.

In an possible automated world, will it be time to put humans out to pasture? This and many other questions laid the foundation for the exhibition Humans Needs Not Apply at the Science Gallery in Dublin, Ireland.

From Lady Charrerley’s Tinderbot to Self Typing Machines and NNN fellows Driessens & Verstappen’s Massage Robots coming from the ceiling in their installation Tickle Salon. If you are in Dublin, make sure not to miss it! The exhibition runs until May 21st.
