At the UX South Africa conference in Johannesburg I presented a talk on the UX of Agriculture. I’m interested in the future of food production, urban farming, and how digital technology can disrupt aspects of mass agriculture. This talk is the outcome of researching new developments and thinking in agritech and urban farming.
I originally studied biochemistry, genetics, and plant physiology, with a little bit of aquaculture, and lately I’m seeing opportunities to combine my interests in science and design, which I find very exciting. I’m also interested in the future of work debate, and as work gets automated the question becomes: What is meaningful work for humans to do?
For me, the future of food production and how we live in cities is part of the answer.
