Technology and Capability

This programme aims to research the integration of technology, capabilities and functioning of people. Advances in technology (for example robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality) resulted in a scenario in which the momentum of technology and commerce often overshadows the service of humanity. This programme studies how technology can be developed to serve humanity.
