Cutting Edge: Solving the World’s Greatest Problems with the World’s Deepest Tech


With so many challenges and opportunities ahead, we need to harness the world’s most cutting edge technologies to affect the landscape positively.

There is scientific and tech brilliance emerging from all across the globe – from research labs to university campuses to startup communities – individuals are pointing to their research papers, methodologies and tools to solving our most intractable problems.

Their scope is breathtaking, ranging from utilising nature’s powerful intelligence to solve a myriad environmental challenge to harnessing the power of quantum computing to build a more resilient global infrastructure.
