Next Frontiers No. 3. While last year’s conference could well be described as “life-oriented technology assessment” (K. Steinmüller), this year the focus shifted to theory and utopia. Without forgetting the art of the possible. A scientifically reliable simulation game for the colonization of Mars with one million people. The question of meaning, purpose and feasibility of the post-fossil city. A novel reading that led to the question of whether humans and machines are really fundamentally different, and if so, for how much longer. A mind-expanding short lecture on quantum physics that was needed to explain what a quantum computer is, how it works, and what it can (and can’t) do. Next Frontiers 2021 was all that and more.
