FiRe 2019: Anticipating the Unexpected

Autonomous vehicles have emerged as a strategic national tech asset, with the most economically and geopolitically important technologies directly included in their supply chain. The advent of CRISPR has opened a Pandora's box of possibilities and risks in gene editing.

FiRe 2019 will feature deep dives on what's coming next in these fields and many others.
