ALGORITHMS INSPIRED BY THE EVOLUTION TO MAKE LIFE EASIER
The keys to improving the trafficking problem may lie in the mechanisms of genetics. This operation is what evolutionary algorithms imitate to achieve the most optimal solutions to a problem. Achieving a smoother traffic flow and reducing pollution in cities is just one of its applications, which are already reaching industrial processes and financial markets.
THE DREAM OF NUCLEAR FUSION AND OTHER MEGAPROJECTS THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD
Colossal infrastructures aim to provide a solution to the needs of a growing population, increasingly concentrated and eminently urban. From guaranteeing the water and energy resources of growing cities, to creating sustainable and smart urban growth environments. These are some of the megaprojects under construction that are going to transform the world geography.
NEW MATERIALS AND BUILDINGS TO FIGHT AGAINST PANDEMICS
The coronavirus pandemic has forced us all to reflect on the way of life we lead and how we influence our environment, an exercise that also extends to the construction sector. Engineers, architects and interior designers are working to design new spaces that minimise infections, and they are experimenting with new materials, structures and fixtures.
A NEW GENERATION OF ELEVATORS TO REVOLUTIONIZE SPACE TRANSPORTATION
In China alone, more than 600,000 elevators (or lifts) are installed annually, a means of transport ten times safer than its main competitor, the escalator. The invention that would transform 19th century urbanism emerged in the midst of the Industrial Revolution, even though the concept had existed for centuries. Today, plans for the elevator have even raised it to the status of a tool for space exploration.
