This science and technology issue is packed with in-depth articles exploring the trends and innovations that are changing lives across the world.

We look at food security and food production to see how technology and science could help to solve the looming global food crisis.

We also examine how women in science and tech continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible, and identify the innovators to watch.

We ask questions and provide answers

How must the construction industry change to benefit from new technologies? How will ‘dark factories’ change the jobs market? What’s the tech secret to helping the world’s ‘unbanked’ citizens? How best do we find protection against the growing wave of corporate cybercrime?

We profile Erik Anderson, tech entrepreneur and Chairman of Singularity University. And an exclusive report by Forrester Research shows how digital transformation improves revenues.

There’s even a look at the amazing (and, in this case, amusing) business world of 2068.
