New topic profiles from Horizon scanning
Compact answers to current questions and impulses for future research and innovations with potential for society are provided by our five new topic profiles from Horizon Scanning.
The topic short profiles of the search cycle in the first half of 2021 are based on 22 topic outlines, from which the following five topics were selected after extensive discussion in the TAB team on the basis of their relevance in the societal discourse and in terms of potential need for legislative action:
- The toilet of the future
- Digitisation of cultural assets
- Technologies to minimise food waste (Food Waste Technologies)
- Emotion recognition by means of artificial intelligence - perspectives and limits of technologies for the analysis of facial movements
The individual profiles (only in German) are between 6 and 10 pages long. They conclude with a description of more-in-depth processing options and contain a detailed list of sources. The topic short profiles also provide impulses for the TAB topic identification process of the parliamentary groups and committees and can be used as sources of information for everyday parliamentary work.
