Future Intersections of Food, Technology & Culture

Date TBA


Few things are as deeply rooted, so deeply ingrained into our DNA and culture as humans, as food. Over millennia, technology has allowed humanity to make periodic leaps of magnitude in our food culture. Our ancestors used technology to revolutionize food systems by cooking with fire; fermenting foods; refrigerating; canning; freezing...to today's on-demand delivery of a mind-boggling array of possible cuisines and options, all from the palm of your hand.

Join us to explore the intersections of food, technology and culture, looking towards the future. What do the next few decades have in store, and how can we learn from the past to create technologies that unlock a food system that is more Just, equitable, sustainable and scalable; to feed the bodies, and souls, of 10 billion or more.
