    Advanced robotics offers the potential to improve the lives of 50 million amputees and those with impaired mobility. Components like advanced robotics dexterity, sensors and exoskeletons will come into play to support differently-abled communities.

  • Autonomous vehicles to hit the road

    Autonomous vehicles to hit the road

    Autonomous or near autonomous vehicles can navigate and operate autonomously or semi autonomously in many situations and have advanced sensors like GPS, radar and computer vision. They could also save 30,000 to 150,000 lives which otherwise are lost in fatal road accidents.

  • Genomics: New boon to human life longevity

    Advanced materials are materials that have superior characteristics such as better strength and conductivity. Nanomedicine could be used in the targeted drugs provided to 20 million cancer patients worldwide by 2025.

  • Reusable rockets: Cheaper alternative to space journeys

    Reusable rockets: Cheaper alternative to space journeys

    The first reusable rocket was launched on November 23rd 2015 by Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin and Elon Musk’s Space X. If rockets can regularly be refuelled, spaceflight could become a hundred times cheaper.
