Innovation, by many defined as a creative destruction, is a driving force of economic growth. Science leads to the most creative destructions, using them in symbiotic manner in order to shape the world of tomorrow. Artifical intelligence and big data go hand in hand with biology and medicine in the quest to improve our lives in the way it wasn't possible before.

In this panel, three top biological scientists will share their perspective about this powerful symbiosis shaping and disrupting our understanding of life. Science has never been more inclusive in search for innovations. Facing challenges together, in the right time, could lead to new ideas and innovative solutions that will boost our growth to mindblown proportions.
