The carefully selected press clippings and resources in this section have been chosen to provide a clear sense of both the forest and the trees in the landscape of emerging technology. Included are not only information about the technologies themselves but also clues to the context within which they are developed and used. New ideas, experimental projects, challenges and trends, substantive research, views on the future, and more, are discussed in the articles here. Eight categories of curated content provide both the latest news and the most important seminal works related to the technologies that have been studied in the Horizon Project.
