Technology and sustainability - Straight into the wall?

Thumbnail Dr Luc Julia, Co-creator of Siri & Chief Scientific Officer, Renault Group

KEYNOTE
It is clear that we are heading towards the wall: the planet is in danger. This terrible observation is not only made by experts and scientists, each of us is beginning to measure the seriousness of the situation in our daily lives. Natural resources are shrinking like a stone in the face of the imperatives of our growth model. Our societies are therefore faced with a global challenge that invites us to change our logic and to reinvent life on earth. Controlled and virtuous, technology can stop this logic of self-destruction and help build a more fraternal and humanistic society.
