Spoiler: Our annual list of Innovators under 35 isn’t really about what a small group of smart young people were doing (though that’s definitely part of it).

Reading about the challenges decided by this year’s winners, you will also see the near future of AI, biotechnology, materials, computing and climate change.

To connect the dots, we asked five experts – all judges or former winners – to write short essays on where they see the most promising and greatest potential obstacles in their fields. We hope the list will inspire you and give you an idea of ​​what to expect in the years to come.

Read the full list here.

The question of urbanism

The modern city is an observation device. It can track your movements through license plate, cell phone and face. But go to any city or suburb of the United States, and there’s another type of monitoring going on that works through networks of private doorbell cameras, wildlife cameras and even garden security cameras.

The latest print edition of the MIT Technology Review explores why regardless of local government we have built our neighborhoods into panopticons: everyone watches everything and all the time. Here is a selection of some new stories in the publication that are guaranteed to make you wonder if smart cities are really that smart:

– How groups of Internet supervisors take the law into their own hands.

– Why Toronto wants you to forget everything you know about smart cities.

– Theft of bicycles is a huge problem. Specialized parking may be the answer.

– Public transport wants to destroy cash, but it will not be as destructive as you think.
