What: SingularityU Canada Meet the Faculty Webinar Series: Meet Irwin Adam
When: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 | 12:30 PM EST
Who: Dr. Irwin Adam, SingularityU Canada Future of Food Faculty
Food is at the epicenter of exponential technological transformation and is already being redefined by artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics, and synthetic biology. With food at this intersection, we are witnessing a Second Green Revolution that is evolving what we eat, what food is, and how food is produced. In this speculative future, we explore what a new food system can look like that is built from the ground up, and fundamentally how we as individuals will contribute to this new food revolution.
Dr. Irwin Adam, creative scientist and food futurist, explores questions such as: will embedded devices advise individuals on current physiological states and evaluate real time nutritional demands? Is cellular agriculture going to replace the traditional animal farm and what is the future of protein? How will blockchain create transparency and accountability within the food system?
