    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    As science continually advances, yesterday’s limitations become today’s starting points. In this Talk, we’ll explore how breakthroughs in one field can be transferable to another, like how gene splicing makes it so fresh vegetables last weeks instead of days and how that same advancement is revolutionizing the medical world. Here, we’ll learn how these assorted advancements are changing the way we live, even if we don’t know it yet.
