conference overview
Technology tries to do something that has never been done before, which is often a matter of doing more with more. To create a market opportunity—and to save the planet—things have to be made simpler, easier, or more affordable. Businesses therefore need to raise the question of whether or not some new thing that can be done, ought to be done, which often comes down to whether we can now do more with less. We’ll look at efficiencies of all kinds, whether it’s creating or using power and energy better; better materials; or better communication, logistics, and markets.

Topics to be explored
Smart infrastructures. Measurement and control. Advanced manufacturing. Technology-driven sustainability. The plummeting cost of solar energy. Wind energy. New materials. Physical resiliency. Prevention. Third-world solutions to first-world problems. Earth systems engineering. Batteries and fuel cells. Carbon capture: fact vs fiction. Efficient space travel. Smart buildings, homes, cities, farms. Urban hydroponics. The sensor economy. Health care.
