Food Futures: UT Speaker Series from Food+City
Food+City is excited to announce our second Food Futures speaker series event. We have invited Chelsea Collier to come speak about how technology is changing the way we feed cities. She will discuss with our Founder, Robyn Metcalfe, food historian and food futurist, what cities around the globe are doing to prepare for the future and ways technology has already impacted the way we grow, buy, track, transport, and consume food. We will explore how blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT) and AI is transforming the food landscape to make a better, more efficient food system. Come hear this Dynamic Duo share their wealth of knowledge and expand your awareness of Food Futures!
