Good morning, this is Zelda bringing you the latest tech news, with an important focus on resilience and ways to find solutions to concrete problems.

We'll look for hope in local production with the second episode of our resilience series podcast and our guest Prof. Suzanne de Treville. We'll discuss the relation between digital and creation with the Geneva International Film Festival, and wonder about technological innovations at the service of art presented at the latest ArtTech Forum.

Plus, in another sign of support for International Geneva, the Federal Council has launched its digital foreign policy strategy.

Portrait transmitted via 3D printing. This portrait of the Mona Lisa was transmitted via a very special route: its data arrived on this screen through a 3D-printed, space-grade polymer. This achievement marks the first step towards a future when plastic printed parts can incorporate their own power and data links within their built structures, instead of relying on separate wiring and circuits.
