Using Technological Innovation to Address Humanity's Grand Challenges

What if a simple blood test could help cure cancer by early detection? Or, what if we could "edit" the human genome to correct disease genes to ensure that babies aren't born with hereditary diseases? Finally, wouldn't it be amazing if humans could launch a robotic mission to Jupiter's icy moon, Europa, to see if there really is an ocean of water resting beneath the surface? While these ideas may seem "out of reach," new developments in the fields of AI, robotics, digital medicine, 3D printing and more are transforming the way we live to ensure a better future.
