      Thematic Evening: Agriculture and Technology - Greener Together?

      Recently, there has been growing interest in green farming technologies and their potential to make agriculture more sustainable. Technology is often perceived to conflict with sustainable agriculture. It is associated with intensive farming practices, pesticide and fertilizer use, genetically modified seeds, etc. which are widely seen to be detrimental to the environment, biodiversity and animal welfare. Recently however, there has been growing interest in green farming technologies and their potential to make agriculture more sustainable. Precision farming, data sensors, robotics, drones and bioengineering are being use to increasing resource-efficiency, raise productivity and reduce negative impacts on the environment. Many of these technologies are still in early development stages. However they are evolving at impressive rates and could soon revolutionize our food production systems. So what potential do they really offer? What challenges need to be tackled in order to expand their use? How can technology help to scale sustainable farming practices like organic or regenerative farming? And what innovative farming approaches can technology enable? Join us to discuss the future of sustainable food production with Philipp Späti, CTO of IBM Switzerland, Olga Dubey, CEO and founder of Agrosustain, and others (further speakers to be announced).
