Thanks to advances in technology, we’ll experience social changes throughout our lifetimes – and even in the near future. We’re already seeing how developments in areas such as computing and artificial intelligence have the ability to reshape entire industries – alongside our daily lives – and this is also upending the way we think about food, including where and when we consume it.
