Announcing our second special guest at #SFXBerlin! We are proud to welcome Jens Bauer to the stage to talk microarchitecture. Jens received a PhD in mechanical engineering from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). During his study, he focused on lightweight design and structural optimization. He is now working on the development of micro/nano-architected high-strength biomimetic lightweight materials.

The clean #energy solutions we favour are not lowering CO2 emissions. Introducing a radical solution from our pioneer, Ed Kelly: https://www.solveforx.com/moonshot/5754818358411264
Our guts are packed with tiny bacteria--some that help and some that harm. The "bad bugs" that cause infections kill millions. The antibiotics we've relied on to treat these diseases kill the bad bugs, but also their friendly counterparts. And meanwhile, antibiotic resistance is a growing complication. So what if we could make bad bugs more friendly? A new and unconventional approach to manage and treat infections recalcitrant to antibiotics, by...

Story
Tagline
Solve for X is a community of individuals and organizations working to accelerate progress on technology moonshots.
Introduction
Solve for X is a forum to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audaciousness of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon to give us all hope that these ideas could really be brought to life.

This combination of things - a huge problem to solve, a radical solution for solving it, and the breakthrough technology to make it happen - is the essence of a moonshot.

Solve for X is intended to be a forum to encourage and amplify technology-based moonshot thinking and teamwork.
