The winners of the video competition Fast Forward Science have been announced. This year’s topics included tomatoes from outer space, heart cells growing on spinach and an artificial intelligence that counts calories over a variety of trends and visions of the future.
Since 2017 I have been a Juror in the category VISION. The web video competition, endowed with a total of 21,000 euros, gives young YouTubers and science communicators a platform.
This year there were more than 125 submissions in the three categories. The following three videos won in the VISION category, in which my topic, the vision of the future, is in the foreground.
1. place: What is artificial intelligence?
In his video, YouTuber Julian Witusch gives an insight into the diverse applications of artificial intelligence.
2. place: Colony on the moon
A trend topic that currently occupies many companies, from Tesla to Virgion, is space travel. But is it really possible to colonize the moon? Could the moon serve in the future as an ideal base for launching rockets and developing space? Ronny Bläß explains this vision in his film.
3. place: A heart from spinach – current medicine research
Medicine is a topic that is currently attracting more and more attention in the field of innovation. But how can human heart cells be grown on spinach leaves? Even if it sounds daring, medical student Marlene shows that it is possible.
