Extending the biosphere and datasphere to space
We live in exciting times as we start extending our biosphere across the Solar System. It will involve evolutionary steps in many aspects of our lives and our culture. This talk will cover several topics ranging from space architecture and living in space, to the possibilities of an interplanetary Internet. We will discuss how future homes both on Earth and in space can benefit from new user interfaces, IoT, augmented reality, biotech, and robotics.
