Abstract:
Many people argue that we have entered a so-called fourth agricultural revolution (agriculture 4.0) with a number of ‘game-changing’ technologies, such as vertical farming, AI and robotics, alternative proteins, and gene editing, promising to improve the sustainability of food production. This talk showcases some of the work of the new ‘Change in Agriculture’ group in APD, specifically focusing on the ethics of new agricultural technologies. It will weigh up the pros and cons of new technologies and asks whether they are truly game-changing, and if so, for whom?
