Hong Kong: Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has spoken to a Hong Kong audience by hologram, showcasing the growing reach of a technology which is making inroads into politics, entertainment and business.
The British scientist appeared on Friday before an audience of hundreds who cheered and snapped pictures with their phones. The 75-year-old said the election of US President Donald Trump was one in a string of “right-wing successes” that would have grave implications for the future of scientific innovation and discovery.
The swing to the right has come at a time when the world is facing multiple environmental crises, from global warming to deforestation.
“The answers to these problems will come from science and technology,” he said.
