In what ways will AI affect how we shape culture? What threat is posed to humanity when AI masters human intimacy? Is AI the end of human history? Will ordinary individuals be able to produce powerful AI tools of their own? How do we regulate AI?

Occupying nearly two thousand two hundred square metres, the exhibition presents a large range of drawings, workbooks and multiple scale models and prototypes, affording us an overview of some one hundred projects in both architecture and design. A selection of works of modern and contemporary art underscores the degree to which they were markers of decisive aesthetic periods for Norman Foster. As an architect of networks, transport and exchange systems and organs of communication, Foster has always sought to place the idea of environmental control at the heart of his creations in order to transcend the idea of nature as completely external and ecology as protection and preservation. He thus developed a systemic global comprehension of nature and technology, reconciling technological progress and a sustainable ecological approach.

In dit nieuwe boek van Ellen Rauh wordt de vraag gesteld hoe de mens zich verhoudt tot onze planeet. Vaak hebben mensen zichzelf boven de Aarde geplaatst en denken zijn te kunnen bepalen hoe de Aarde verandert en waar dieren en planten kunnen leven. Klimaatverandering wordt bijvoorbeeld pas een probleem wanneer het de mens direct beïnvloedt. Maar de Aarde herinnert ons eraan dat alles vergankelijk is en dat we slechts tijdelijke bewoners zijn. Kunnen we iets leren van de Aarde, of zien we haar alleen als middel om te overleven? Laten we ons mee voeren met de veranderingen en de verschillende waarheden ontdekken die de Aarde voor ons in petto heeft.boek bestellen - order book
There is a well known parable about three blind men who describe an elephant by studying it with their hands. The first blind man touches the elephant's trunk; the second touches the leg, and the third touches ear. Each draws conclusions about what kind of animal the elephant represents based on their own findings. It would be pointless to try and prove that only one description of the three is correct.
The world always reflects our perception of it. People can choose any variant of the development of current reality and thereby find themselves in circumstances they find desirable. To learn how to do this, you have to learn how to establish mutual understanding between the soul and mind, formulate intention and avoid the influence of destructive pendulums.Vadim Zeland
Rupert Sheldrake shows the ways in which science is being constricted by assumptions that have, over the years, hardened into dogmas. He examines ten of these dogmas, turning them on their heads, to show that new possibilities for discovery await us beyond the materialist paradigm.
According to these dogmas, all of reality is material or physical; the world is a machine, made up of inanimate matter; nature is purposeless; consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain; free will is an illusion; God exists only as an idea in human minds, imprisoned within our skulls.
But should science be a belief-system or a method of inquiry? Rupert shows that the materialist ideology is moribund; under its sway, increasingly expensive research is reaping diminishing returns while societies around the world are paying the price.Rupert Sheldrake
