While technology has reduced our workload and improved our quality of life, many of humanity’s greatest challenges remain, including:
- Lethal pathogens such as Ebola, Zika, HIV and antibiotic resistant bacteria
- Incurable diseases such as cancer and muscular dystrophy
- Massive food shortages expected to occur due to our ever increasing global population
- Climate change, pollution and other environmental problems making it even more difficult to feed our planet.
These challenges cannot be solved simply by fine-tuning current approaches.
