4. The ‘Future-Ready’ Keynote Series – “Mechanical to ‘Organical'”
Yes - I'm making up a word, but making a serious point. It's not a forecast about how our built environment will move entirely away from bricks'n'mortar. It's simply stating we'll have a bigger toolbox at our disposal. Driving the evolution is a synthesising mindset - drawing from a range of disciplines to enable new approaches to how we live and drive down Co2 emissions.
Material science is just one point addressed in the 'Big 21st Century Trends' keynote. More broadly, we explore the big technologies and challenges facing our species. Artificial Intelligence, Biotechnology, Future of Work and Climate Change. What should audiences be aware of and how can they live harmoniously and productively in a dramatically changing world?
