About this talk
Humans face the challenge of dwindling resouces. Simons suggests that engineers of the future will be inspired by biologist’s understanding of cells to design efficient high tech solutions. However, he makes a strong argument for a balance with low tech solutions that are simple, efficient and use very little energy.
