Online | You and the Planet: Technology

Synopsis

We will be collecting audience questions in advance so if you have anything you would like to ask on the topic, please submit your questions to help guide the conversation on the night.

From the handheld device that fits in your pocket to the large-scale digital infrastructure that keeps our shelves stocked and cars driving, digital technologies underpin almost everything we do in modern society. And with that power, comes great potential to use these to tackle one of the biggest issues facing our world today, climate change.

Machine learning, for example, can facilitate cleaner and greener journeys by analysing traffic data to lower congestion and reduce emissions in real time. Combining digital sensors with wireless networks and computer analysis can help farmers shift to smarter ways of farming where food production is optimised and waste minimised. And these are just two examples from a list of near endless applications – what other ways can digital technologies support us in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss?

Join our panel of experts to address this question and discover the incredible opportunities provided by digital technologies in mitigating climate change and helping us to achieve net zero.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
