Museum Of The Future , Dubai
The Museum of the Future, first unveiled in 2015, was due to open in 2019 but has been pushed back until 2020.
The Museum of the Future is a unique initiative that explores the future of science, technology and innovation. Located near Emirates Towers, this Museum aims to provide a platform to demonstrate and test the latest inventions and prototypes from promising start-ups and the world’s technology giants. You can take up advanced courses and specialised workshops and attend public talks and events related to all things technology here. The Museum of the Future will also host innovation facilities and design studios with universities, companies and research partners.
The Museum of the Future is said to fly in 15 selected companies to demonstrate their technology, develop pilot project proposals and compete for funded projects to be integrated into the attraction when it opens.
Join us on a trip to the year 2035, where we show how technology could evolve to enhance our bodies and minds, explore what role it might play in our social and family lives, and discuss how it could be used to manage complex social and economic systems.
Towards The Future
A primary focus of the Museum of the Future is on shaping the future of robotics and artificial intelligence and their impact on human life. During your visit, expect an interactive experience with robots like never before.
The Museum of the Future has 3 underlying themes running through it.
Firstly, it addresses how robots and artificial intelligence(A()) improve human mental and physical capabilities. Get a glimpse into NewKnees that give their users superhuman abilities to run and jump.
Secondly, the Museum focuses on the relation between humans and robots. Ever wondered about ‘How would it feel to have robots care for the elderly?', 'Will the relation between robots and humans develop to become similar to inter-human relations?'. Well, find all your answers at the Museum.
The last theme showcases the development of artificial intelligence technologies and how it will affect management and decision making processes. They predict a future where AI systems manage your money and careers. Sounds super interesting, right?
Architecture That Amazes
The Museum of the Future in Dubai is definitely shaping up to be one of the world’s most complex structures. The inspiration for the torus form is inspired by “Feng Shui,” where the building’s shape represents the earth and the sky and the empty space in the middle represents the unknown. Arabic calligraphy runs through the outer facade of the building and the smooth exteriors are a borrowed technique from the aviation industry, covered in 890 joint-free stainless steel and fiberglass panels. In fact, the calligraphy inscribed onto the exterior features quotes from the Prime Minister of Dubai, Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum about the future of the country. The only horizontal surfaces in the building are the floors.
The building is said to have 10 levels and a museum which will be connected by an elevated walkway to the Metro station, as well as a bridge linking to the Emirates Towers.
