In the fifth episode of our podcast, Future Human: The Series, we look at the challenges a growing population presents for our global food security, and ask if technology might have the answers.
In our Future Human podcast series, the journalists at Silicon Republic chat to some of the leading minds about the future of everything. Hosted by Ann O’Dea, the latest episode asks how technology might help secure our global food supply amid the challenges of climate change and international conflicts.
In case you missed it, our first episode featured an array of leaders on the future of cybersecurity and zero trust, while episode two asked how we will travel sustainably.
Episode three looked at how we regulate generative AI to ensure transparent and ethical use cases, while episode four tackled the future of cities with in-depth interviews by O’Dea and SiliconRepublic.com editor Jenny Darmody with leaders looking at cities from the point of view of technology, design and process management.
