Microgravity can be used to unlock old materials and make new ones in ways that can’t be replicated on Earth. Private companies know this, and are leading the charge toward the next gold rush. But can they turn low Earth orbit into a home for the next industrial revolution?

Our brain has 86 million neurons connected by 3 million kilometers of nerve fibers and The Human Brain Project is mapping it all.

One of the key applications is neuromorphic computing – computers inspired by brain architecture that may one day be able to learn as we do.

Bloomberg takes a look at the future of non-terrestrial real estate.

Over the past few decades, the International Space Station has allowed astronauts to live, work and conduct research in microgravity. But with the station’s planned retirement by 2030, private companies are being asked to create the next generation of space habitat.

Bloomberg describes how the first trillionaires will come to be.

There are millions of asteroids in our solar system. Because some are full of materials that are rare on Earth, they have been valued at stupendous amounts. But the most valuable resource in space may be something that’s abundant back on the ground.

Bloomberg’ Next Jobs interviews Tommy DeVoss. DeVoss used to break into websites illicitly. But after serving time for his crimes, he now uses his skills to earn an honest living.

Through arrangements known as bug bounty programs, companies pay him to find security holes in their systems.

He’s now earned more than $1 million in this emerging profession.

Bloomberg explores the very real digital disruption happening in the call center industry.

This video explores a call center in the Dominican Republic, where Laura Morales is designing chatbots to respond to customer service requests.

Morales, a former call center agent herself, has benefited from her new job that is better paid and higher skilled than what she used to do.

Will these chatbots end up replacing the livelihoods of millions of agents around the world?

Since totaling my car in an accident last December, my eagerness to get a self-driving car has only accelerated. Here’s an interesting look at the training data used to train these AIs and who generates them.

Autonomous cars are only as good as the human drivers they learn from — so the people who teach these systems how to drive need to be excellent drivers themselves. To get a look at what it takes to do this job, Bloomberg Technology’s Aki Ito recently joined two vehicle operators who work for self-driving car startup Aurora Innovation Inc. on a test drive in the chaos of downtown San Francisco. This is an episode of Next Jobs, a mini-documentary series about careers of the future.
