Jakub responds to the question: "Will the Internet always operate the same way as it does now?" His answer: it is sure that it won't. The world changes and technology changes. Computers are smaller and communicate with us wirelessly and in an ever higher range of ways.
Jakub is President and founder of Estimote - a company that develops microlocalisation technology enabling smartphones and other devices to find themselves in the real world and understand where they are located (e.g. next to the Mona Lisa, at a school desk, at the kitchen table). In 2013 Jakub, as one of the first in Poland, entered Y Combinator - an American programme supporting the most modern business projects in the world.
How will we communicate in the future?
Adam talks about the communication of the future, how the functionality of devices changes and how technology changes. In future, manipulating those devices will not require our hands as our whole body will be able to be connected to the computer. What is more, in future we will be able to delegate unpleasant tasks to robots and spend more time on entertainment. It does not mean we will stop learning at school but are we going to go to school at all?
Adam is author of the well known blog, Mediafeed, and a technology trendwatcher. For many years, he has been active in marketing communication based on interactive media and new technology. Advisor and trainer. One of the most respected experts in the technology sector.

Will artificial intelligence change the world?
Aleksandra looks for answers on how Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change the world. She compares robots, machines and humans and demonstrates that there are areas where machines do better but also situations where humans are irreplaceable. She proposes that we should already be discussing in which direction AI should go and how to control this process.

Is teleportation possible?
Piotr talks about teleportation and whether it’s possible - in reality, and not just in movies. We are able to teleport single atoms, but although travel is getting faster and we can get very far, very, very fast, teleportation of people is still impossible. Piotr also asks, do we need it? For short distances (ca. 500 km) the best means of transport is still a train, and for longer distances - a plane. Before teleportation becomes possible and accessible, it will take lots and lots of time and it will require many solutions, not only technological. Even if teleporting one person to Warsaw took 20 sec, doing it for 300 people would take so much time that it would still be quicker to go by train.
Piotr began his adventure with IT before he was 10 years old. He started programming using BASIC language, then learned assembler and C. He even worked on his own operational system. Piotr has cooperated with various companies in the last 10 years, programming, being a manager, training others and travelling to IT centres around the world, including the US, Japan and India.
