La science-fiction au service d’un monde meilleur

Yasser Bahjatt is a computer engineer from the Middle East, explaining at TED@Doha, how science-fiction, that captures people’s imagination, can bring about scientific progress and lead to a better future.

Yasser Bahjatt est un ingénieur en informatique du Moyen-Orient, qui explique à TED@Doha, comment la science fiction (il cite notamment Jules Verne) peut générer des avancées scientifiques et ouvrir la voie vers un avenir meilleur.

Bahjatt has been working “for the past 4 years on a platform where sci-fi writers and artists from all over the Arabian world would work together”. And hopefully “the science is going to follow”.

Bahjatt travaille depuis plus de « 4 ans sur une plateforme qui réunit des écrivains et des artistes de tout le monde arabe travaillant ensemble ». Et il espère que «les avancées scientifiques  suivront ».
