The Geektime site took advantage of the celebrations of the 74th anniversary of the independence of Israel to question some of its experts so that they express themselves on the technological ecosystem in 10 years.
Tamar Morag-Sela (Reinhold Cohen): “With increasing pressure from the world’s growing population and global warming, the food we eat will undergo major changes in the future and it is expected to look and feel a very different feeling by 2030. While the question of whether foods of animal origin will disappear from our culinary habits is debated, there is no doubt that by 2030, “green foods” will inhabit our plates. Steak will give way to alternative meat, whether cell-derived, like that produced by Israeli startups Aleph Farms and Future Meat, or 3D-printed like Israeli startup Redefine Meat. In addition, dairy products will be replaced with alternative milks such as Innovopro’s chickpea-derived products. In addition, the road to 2030 will bring algae-based foods, such as those produced by Algaecore Tech, into our eating habits, while leaving a respectful space for magic mushroom-based foods, rich in umami and protein, such as those developed by Kinoko-Tech foods. The change in the agricultural scene in 2030 will not only be on our plate, but agronomic expertise will be combined with big data and AI to enable increased crop yields, and smart indoor vertical farming, such as one developed by Israeli startups Vertical Fields, while LivingGreen will dominate in urban spaces to alleviate the scarcity of agricultural land. »
Rami Reshef (GenCell): “I am convinced that together with revolutionary new materials, scientific technologies will stimulate the hydrogen economy and accelerate the transition to renewable energies which are essential for the sustainable future of the world. To date, the enormous potential of hydrogen as a driver of decarbonization has yet to be realized. Huge investments in hydrogen vehicles, refueling stations and electrolyzers have not allowed for widespread deployment due to problems with transporting and storing hydrogen. These resolutions are essential for renewable energies to play a central role in the energy economy of tomorrow. We believe that breakthrough developments in hydrogen carriers will produce innovative, clean and economical energy in the form of stored fuel to supplement renewable resources, while providing ubiquitous, uninterrupted and carbon-neutral energy anywhere and everywhere. at any time. These game-changing developments in the hydrogen economy will eventually replace fossil fuels and enable us to achieve the ambitious decarbonization goals, with sufficient support, before time is running out. »
food delivery technology
Ami Palgi (Grubhub): “GenZ is driving the future of food delivery. They spend most of their income ordering meals online and prefer buying food online over cooking due to their busy schedules and fast-paced lifestyles. This will lead to new trends; first, exploiting new channels to place orders, by tweeting, via a smartwatch or from your car; second, various delivery options, from robots to drones to parachutes; and third, niche delivery services, such as pet food delivery, environmental protection trash food service, virtual kitchens, and even cryptocurrency food ordering blockchain-based. Israel will play a central role in these trends, both as a leader in new technologies (such as our TLV innovation center specializing in robotic delivery) and as an early adopter of new trends. »
Elay De-Beer (Buff Technologies): “In a decade, gaming, video games and the Metaverse will be the main entertainment channel in our lives. The world of video games will continue to evolve, the content will be richer, easier to reach and personalized. Supporting technology will improve dramatically, with the development of graphics engines, as well as supporting hardware like virtual reality goggles and other technologies. The future of gaming is thriving and will allow game makers/creators and gamers to have a more immersive, fun and realistic experience than ever before. Israeli companies will play an active and dominant role in the growth of the game industry and the metaverse. The Israeli tech industry has high entrepreneurial capabilities and innovative technologies that can and will be used in the gaming industry. If the previous decade was the cyberdecade, the next one will be the gaming decade in Israel. Cutting-edge companies, entrepreneurs and technologies will actively participate in building the future of the games industry. »
