Why is Maun Science Park important?
This is the first time in the 4 1/2 billion–year history of Earth that a lifeform can make it possible to build consciousness in its living spaces. Technological advancements in "smart" infrastructures, structural engineering, energy, water, waste, food production that are based on data-driven intelligence will allow us to secure a future that is resilient and sustainable.
