Next Nature Fellow

Why in the future, we will all wear one piece of garment

It’s not an easy task to define the practice of designer Jasna Rok. Fashtech pioneer? Radical innovator? Visionary designer? ‘All of the above’ seems only appropriate. In fact, Jasna founded the first FashionTech design studio in Belgium, where she combines innovative technologies with interactive fashion and roams the planet to share her vision to disrupt the current fashion industry, but she doesn’t stop at fashion, the redefining of other traditional industries through the future of fashion and technonlogy is her true mission.

Homo Roboticus

Homo Roboticus: VUB, Brussels

In an increasingly robotized society, you and I explore and discover new technologies. Although robotics and artificial intelligence can help humans and nature, they also often generate fear, because they threaten to overpower us. History teaches us that technology has the power to strengthen economic growth and transform societies. This will be more than ever the case with the emerging robotics and artificial intelligence. The applications are ubiquitous: from robots in the factories, the conversion of people to cyborgs, self-driving vehicles to killerbots.
