#186: Dr. David Meszaros: Solving World Hunger With Technology And Smart Farms


According to the UN, more than 10 billion people will live on planet earth by 2050. But this poses a serious question: how will we feed everybody?

With the damaging impact of climate change, increased urbanization and ongoing soil erosion, this is a problem that cannot be ignored. Thankfully, AgTech Entrepreneur, Forbes 30 Under 30 nominee and Founder of SMARTKAS, Dr. David Meszaros, might have the answer with AI-powered smart farms. In this episode, I speak with David, who is a true visionary in every sense of the word. We discuss why food security is critical, the differences between smart and traditional farms, and why farms powered by AI and robotics are the future if we want to secure food for life.
