If you look around the world and the modern society today, there’s plenty of innovation that’s happening. It’s unprecedented in terms of a ‘time of change’.

We’ve got things like robotics, we’re all talking about autonomous vehicles and states are passing laws for autonomous driverless vehicles.

We’ve got 3D printing, we’ve got sensors, we’ve got artificial intelligence. All these things are impacting on our daily lives which is terrific, and with all of these technologies and approaches there’s terrific opportunities to apply some of these technologies to our world of biosecurity.

So the question is, in terms of this rapid evolving innovation in our world, can innovation help solve some of our biosecurity challenges? I absolutely think so.

And I think one of the opportunities that we have is to look at how these innovations are being applied in other industries and to think whether there’s an opportunity to apply them to our biosecurity challenges.
