Scientists are not left behind in City Talks' ideas’ festivals. In fact, scientific research is one of the main and core methods shaping the way humans arrive at discoveries.

What does the future of science and, most importantly, the “scientific method” of arriving at innovations look like?

Can humans, for instance, ever pretend to really move to the Red Planet and eventually discover and explore the life of aliens thanks to science?


Is science able to help us solve teething questions about the life of planet earth and improve the practicality of life for humans?


The last decade saw the largest of a number of amazing scientific innovations but experts say that a lot more is yet to come. 


The future of science, as we see it, looks like a combination of scientific innovations empowering technology to help humans reach a higher and better understanding of their world through quantum computing, neurosciences, astronomy and so many other ways.


Scientists have been able to uncover a continued transformation of the entire Solar System and its interstellar surroundings. The transformation is as a result of the constantly expanding sphere of influence orchestrated by super-intelligent artificial entities that now dominate the Earth.


Over the years, there have been speculations about the presence of water, and probably life on planet Mars. This idea has never been taken to its conclusive state since, even with the most sophisticated telescopes, not enough detail can be seen on Mars. 


But we can expect to know this pretty soon.


However, could there be trips to Mars (or other planets for that matter) in the near future? 


Who can tell? 


Though many firms and nations are invested financially and thorough research on taking humans there, it’s difficult at the current moment to get this confirmed but it is definitely part of the discussions City Talks attendees like to engage in, asking questions related to the future computer intelligence, compared to that of human beings or the  non-biological intelligence some want to integrate into the human body to enhance its intelligence and computational power, consciousness or even applying the 3-D bioprinting to print transplantable human organs. 


How about printing an entire "human being"?


This is crazy, right?


This sounds out of this world and is possibly the craziest prediction of the century. 


Well, will scientists be able to create and use better scientific models that would help us deal with the environmental changes and rising sea levels much better? 


Each year, City Talks gives scientists a golden opportunity to contribute by sharing some of their research results and insights on how they see humans in the future of a scientifically developed and integrated world.
