Over the decades there has been both the evolution and transformation of biologically-based life support innovations that have now been adopted -- and are being improved upon -- in today's burgeoning global vertical farming industry.
In addition, the emergence of Industry 4.0 innovations from data analytics to automation to AI is certainly enabling and helping launch vertical farms into their exponential advancements.
And all these set the stage for synergistic public-private partnerships going forward for the successful implementation of biologically-based life support systems for long-duration manned missions on the Moon and on Mars -- and all their powerful innovation multiplier effects extended further for application in the terrestrial vertical farming industry.
Our panel will be delving into the various aspects of such brave and exciting scenarios, both present and future
