NASAs Artemis, Space R&D, Technologies that will impact us, New business-university platform, A view from Cambridge on networks, Fords lighter cars

December 2019

It has been a while since a human set foot on the Moon, but the next time we go there it will be to stay, according to NASA. In this edition, we speak to NASA's director for human lunar exploration, Marshall Smith, about the Artemis mission, which aims to establish a base on the Moon to inform future exploration missions to Mars and into deep space.

Also in this edition, IKE CEO Professor Sa'ad Sam Medhat shares insights from the IKE's latest report on the state of aerospace and space R&D in the UK.

Back on Earth, we find out how business leaders feel about investing in artificial intelligence, take a look the 20 technologies that are expected to have the biggest impact on life in the coming decade, and find out about a new innovation platform designed to facilitate collaboration between businesses and universities in the UK.

Plus, we speak to the head of infrastructure at the University of Cambridge about the challenges of keeping a vast academic network - including its IoT-enabled cows - connected and secure, and hear from Ford Motor Company about its work to build lighter, more efficient cars.

I hope you enjoy this edition of Brite Innovation Review.
