According to the areas of focus announced by Max Polyakov for the Vernadsky Challenge 2018, the engineers that will participate in the challenge will be focusing on satellites, launch systems, rocket engineering, and allied technologies. They will also focus on the way artificial intelligence is used in space technologies. According to Max Polyakov, the active bioelectronics area will look into technologies that will enhance medical direction and human capabilities. This will include things like how devices for disabled people could be developed with robotics and how it could also be used to develop devices to help those in very difficult professions. Applications can be made by prospects at the Vernadsky Challenge website.
