The Future of Eating

What some call The Fourth Agricultural Revolution, is being made possible by the rapid developments in Big Data, Robotics, Cellular Biology, Driverless Vehicles, Sensors, and Soil-less Agriculture. Few of us fully understand the impact and consequences of transforming the human-based activities of food production and consumption to non-human, technology-based platforms. What are the limits of the tradeoff of privacy and personalization of our food? Will we agree to trade in our personal data in return for living a decade longer? This panel will bring together knowledge experts in the field of human/technology interactions, consumer behavior, food production, scientists, academics, and the food industry.
