Techie Corner – 2016 – Post #5 – Food Technologies

Which emerging technologies will change our food supply?

My two cents, but please share yours:

In addition to automation (artificial intelligence (AI), robots, and androids (humanoid robots)), we can now add 3D printing food and vertical farming. These last two can be done in urban areas as well as rural. And all three of these technologies are arriving now.


  1. Heh. It really sounds like eating the pictures from the cooking magazine and pretending it’s very tasty.

    Vertical farming has a lot to recommend it, but it will be labor intensive – for people or for robots.

    • Hopefully, vertical farming will provide numerous jobs for people, Aunt Mary. I suspect we still can’t see what new jobs automation will create, and if history repeats itself, there will be far more jobs created than lost after the transition is done. Cheers, Ashley
