science fiction in the present technological reality of the future
About the event
The Artian is happy to be back at Google For Startups Madrid Campus for another event of the ART X TECH X ENTREPRENEURSHIP event series. This time we will host the physicist and science fiction writer, Gisela Baños.
Science fiction has never intended to predict the future, and yet sometimes it does. How does it get it if that is not the main objective? What mechanisms does Science fiction have and in what way can we use them in any other professional field? Science fiction, due to its own characteristics and multidisciplinary nature, welcomes all kinds of humanistic and scientific disciplines under the same umbrella, which makes it one of the most powerful tools we have available to understand reality and project our thinking towards the future.
THE EVENT WILL BE HELD IN SPANISH.
Gisela Baños studied theoretical physics at the University of Leipzig and currently works in the publishing world as a proofreader and editor of technical texts, popularization, science fiction, and children’s books.
She also teaches courses and presentations about science fiction and its possibilities as a creative and innovative tool in programs such as the Computer Entrepreneurship Program (CEP) of Immune Technology Institute, or the Gaia and Bridge training programs of the Universidad-Empresa Foundation. She has been a finalist in several literary science fiction prizes, such as the I Ripley Prize, the III Toshiba Homocrisis science fiction contest, and the XIV Galileo Prize for science and technology stories at the UPCT.
