15-Minute Cities: The Future of Urban Living — Redefining Convenience, Sustainability, and Community by Mark Whelan

Hollywood walk of Strain, the 15-minute city by Mark Whelan A 15-minute city is a concept that aims to create urban areas where residents can access most of their daily needs within a 15-minute walk or bike ride. This includes basic necessities such as food, healthcare, education, and work, as well as recreational activities and cultural […]

“The Simulation Hypothesis: Are We Living in a Computer Simulation? A Thought-provoking Exploration of the Simulation Argument” by Mark Whelan

The Simulation argument, proposed by philosopher Nick Bostrom in 2003, is a thought experiment that suggests that it is possible that our reality is actually a computer simulation. According to Bostrom, one of the following three statements must be true: Almost all civilizations at our level of technological development go extinct before they are able to […]

“The Future is Now: The Case for Augmented Reality in 2023 and How it’s Transforming Our World” by Mark M. Whelan

The Case for Augmented Reality in 202 Augmented reality (AR) glasses are wearable devices that allow users to see and interact with virtual objects and information in the real world. AR glasses have the potential to revolutionize a wide range of industries and applications, both in the consumer and enterprise sectors. Here are a few […]

“Securing the Future with Quantum Cryptography: Unbreakable Security for the Digital Age” by Mark Whelan

Quantum cryptography is a field of study that uses the principles of quantum mechanics to develop secure communication systems. Quantum cryptography relies on the principles of quantum mechanics, such as superposition and entanglement, to create secure communication channels that are resistant to hacking and interception. One of the key features of quantum cryptography is that […]

“The Future is Digital: How Immersive Technologies are Transforming the Way We Experience the World” by Mark M. Whelan

Digital experiences refer to the interactions that people have with digital technology, such as websites, mobile apps, and social media platforms. These experiences are important because they allow people to access information, communicate with others, and engage with content in new and innovative ways. One of the key advantages of digital experiences is that they […]

“Editing the Future: The Advancements in Gene Editing and its Impact on Medicine, Agriculture and Society” by Mark M. Whelan

Gene editing is a technique that allows scientists to make precise changes to the DNA of an organism. One of the most commonly used methods of gene editing is called CRISPR, which stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats. CRISPR works by using a specific enzyme called Cas9 that can cut strands of DNA […]

“The Future is Under Our Skin: The Rise of Digital Implants and the Impact on our lives” by Mark M. Whelan

Digital Implants by Mark Whelan Digital implants are devices that are implanted inside the human body and are capable of interacting with digital technologies. These implants can take many forms, from tiny sensors that monitor the body’s functions to devices that allow users to control external technologies with their thoughts. While digital implants have the potential […]

“Unlocking the Power of Quantum Computing: The Future of Technology and its Impact on Society” by Mark M. Whelan

Quantum computing is a type of computing that uses principles of quantum mechanics, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data. In contrast to classical computing, which uses bits that are either 0 or 1, quantum computing uses quantum bits, or qubits, which can be both 0 and 1 at the same time. […]
