Battlefield: Food

Global food suppliers face major challenges in feeding over 7 billion people: a rural exodus and urban renaissance, small organic farms, big producers and ever-shifting technology. Join restaurateur and philanthropist Kimbal Musk and Dr. Axel Bouchon, the head of Leaps by Bayer, as they discuss future farming innovations.

Do we need to decelerate innovation?

The speed of innovation is increasing in parallel to environmental pressures and population shifts. We are developing technology to solve some of society’s biggest challenges, but this may come at the cost of our ethical values. Science and technology visionaries Jaan Tallinn and Axel Bouchon discuss how society ought to strike the right balance between the competing forces of speedy innovation and moral diligence.
