A look back at Jack Bobo, SVP Global Policy and Government Affairs, Intrexon session at the 2018 Silicon Valley AgTech Conference.
One of the great challenges that confront all of us in the next 30 years is to figure out how to maximize the production of food while minimizing the negative consequences of agriculture -- from polluted waterways to disappearing rainforests. Science and technology may hold the key to addressing many of the world's biggest problems but only if scientific breakthroughs make it to fields and the grocery store shelves. This presentation will examine global trends in food and agriculture, the interplay between science and public perception of risk, and how scientists and agriculture companies build trust to navigate these trends.
