What does it take to solve a really hard problem and what part does using first principles play? As we face a world of increasing complexity, the ability to solve the “unsolvable” may be the difference between a surviving culture and a thriving one. This panel is led by expert scientists, researchers, physicists and engineers who have sought out solving problems and projects with great technical uncertainty, requiring multi-faceted teams. Problems and projects with the potential for high-impact, whether it's improving the human condition, impacting sustainability in a positive way, or otherwise moving us collectively to an inclusively abundant future.
