Sequencing and analysis of the human genome, all the genetic information stored in our DNA, enable understanding about a person's ancestry, health and various traits. DNA sequencing greatly benefits medicine and the life sciences by allowing them to predict and cure diseases. While DNA sequencing technologies continuously improve and become less costly, what if we all soon possessed our personal, smart DNA sequencers and apps to analyse DNA?

    What if ecolabels could nudge us to choose greener food?

    6:39

    The way most food is produced is harming the planet. A profound change is needed, involving all agri-food actors. As consumers, we sit at the end of the agri-food chain. Our daily dietary choices implicitly support certain food systems, production methods and types of food. What could help us make better choices? In this podcast, we'll talk about ecolabels and their potential to nudge us towards more sustainable food choices. - Original publication on the EP Think Tank website - Subscription to our RSS feed in case your have your own RSS reader - Podcast available on Deezer, iTunes, TuneIn, Stitcher, YouTube Source: © European Union - EP

    What if novel drug delivery methods revolutionised medicine?

    4:54

    Nanoparticles lie at the heart of a new method for delivering medicines inside the body – and they were crucial to the success of the Covid-19 mRNA vaccines. This new drug delivery method and others could transform the way we treat disease, potentially boosting the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and HIV, among others. Insulin and Covid-19 vaccines might even become available as pills. In this podcast, we'll look into new drug delivery methods that could simplify the way we treat diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. - Original publication on the EP Think Tank website - Subscription to our RSS feed in case your have your own RSS reader - Podcast available on Deezer, iTunes, TuneIn, Stitcher, YouTube Source: © European Union - EP

    What if the Internet failed?

    3:43

    Since its early development in the 1960s, Internet infrastructure has become almost as important as electricity and transport infrastructures in contemporary societies. More and more key services such as banking, food retail, and health care, rely on Internet connections. Despite its original resilient decentralised design, the increasing importance of a few central players and centralising developments have made the Internet more vulnerable to failure. What repercussions would that entail?

    What if deepfakes made us doubt everything we see and hear?

    3:16

    Deepfakes are hyper-realistic videos created through artificial intelligence techniques. They present many possibilities, but also dangers. A wide range of malicious uses have been identified, including fraud, extortion and political disinformation. The impacts of such misuse can be financial, psychological and reputational. While the technology itself is legal, some malicious uses are not, and a combination of legal and technical measures may be mobilised to limit their production and dissemination. https://www.europarl.europa.eu/thinktank/en/document.html?reference=EPRS_ATA(2021)690046 https://youtu.be/m2FfdjMWBr0 Source: © European Union - EP

    What if we chose new metaphors for artificial intelligence?

    5:44

    Artificial intelligence (AI) policy debates are replete with metaphors. In this podcast, we explore some challenges presented by the central metaphor of ‘intelligence’, examine how AI metaphors emphasise competition at the cost of cooperation, and ask whether new metaphors could help us to articulate ambitious visions for AI, and new criteria for success. https://www.europarl.europa.eu/thinktank/en/document.html?reference=EPRS_ATA(2021)690024 https://youtu.be/McfLzteWrEo Source: © European Union - EP

    What if objects around us flocked together to become intelligent?

    3:18

    The internet of things is already making us reimagine daily life, but could artificial intelligence be the key to reaching the full potential of this technology? https://www.europarl.europa.eu/thinktank/en/document.html?reference=EPRS_ATA(2021)656344 https://youtu.be/czGzqz2JTrM Source: © European Union - EP

    What if blockchain could guarantee ethical AI?

    4:13

    As artificial intelligence (AI) companies and other organisations are seeking ways to comply with ethical principles and requirements, blockchain, under specific circumstances, could be seen as a means to safeguard that AI is deployed in an ethically sound manner. https://www.europarl.europa.eu/thinktank/en/document.html?reference=EPRS_ATA(2020)656334 https://youtu.be/JpNf0uqzVcs Source: © European Union - EP

    What if we could engineer the planet to help fight climate change?

    4:00

    Efforts to curb carbon emissions are falling short. As climate change impacts become all too clear, geoengineering is again in the spotlight. Some see it as a last-resort option to fight climate change. Detractors highlight the risks and uncertainties. Will governments end up ‘tinkering with Earth's thermostat'? https://www.europarl.europa.eu/thinktank/en/document.html?reference=EPRS_ATA(2021)656339 https://youtu.be/PvaAMyBxPwM Source: © European Union - EP

    What If Technology And Culture Combined To Boost A Green Recovery?

    2:47

    With its recent European Green Deal framework, the EU is striving to achieve climate neutrality in its economy by 2050 and, simultaneously, bring itself on the path of recovery from the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Technology will inevitably play a significant part in this process. However, historical experience tells us that culture and aesthetic have too had significant roles in recovery from a crises, be it war, economic recession, or an epidemic. https://www.europarl.europa.eu/thinktank/en/document.html?reference=EPRS_ATA(2020)656332 https://youtu.be/STAUrZIfjJw Source: © European Union - EP
