Lunar economic zone by Zhan Wang

See more architecture and design movies at dezeen.com/movies

Architectural Association graduate Zhan Wang has produced an animation depicting a fictional technotopian future scenario in which China has built a giant port to distribute minerals mined from the moon.

Zhan Wang’s Lunar Economic Zone project imagines a celebration taking place in Shenzhen in the year 2028 to mark the arrival of the first shipment of lunar minerals.

The animation portrays the architecture and infrastructure required by such a system and the way the parade might be propagandised to present China’s technological and economic prowess through the lens of the global media.

Teacher of Algorithms

Speculative Vision commissioned by http://j.mp/1K9rSa9

We think about smart/learning objects as yet not finished entities that can evolve their behaviors by observing, reading and interpreting our habits. They train their algorhitms based on deep learning or similar ways to constantly adapt and refine their decisions.
But What if things are not that good at learning after all without some help?
What if in a near future, i could just get a person to train my products better as i do with pets?
Why having to deal with the initial problems and risk that it might even learn wrongly?
So, What if there would be an algorithm trainer?
