Anticipatory Architecture

Perception-controlled interior architecture, supported by existing “smart” materials (mirror, glass, wrap, sensors), multimedia, blockchain technology, and virtual reality adapt to the user’s/inhabitant’s needs. Applications include living spaces for highly mobile professionals (neo-nomads), nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, hospital rooms.

The Adaptive Car

Functions that include anticipatory features can make vehicles safer and prevent accidents, adapting to weather and road conditions. They also “learn” the driver and adapt to his/her driving style and individual characteristics (e.g., age, health)

The German university system must accelerate the adoption of digital media in education throughout the country, the sooner the better, and despite resistance from instructors at all levels of education. The new generation, and the entire country, can only benefit from deploying digital technology.
