Israeli technology in 2032. – IsraelValley

Geektime used the celebration of the 74th anniversary of Israel’s independence to interview some of its experts to comment on the technological ecosystem in 10 years.

FoodTech

Tamar Morag-Sela (Reinhold Cohen): “With increasing pressure from the world’s growing population and global warming, the food we eat is undergoing major changes in the future, and by 2030 it is expected to have very different experiences. The question of whether animal products will disappear from our culinary habits is being discussed, there is no doubt that by 2030 “green products” will settle in our plates. Steak will give way to alternative meat, whether cellular derivatives, such as those produced by Israeli startups Aleph Farms and Future Meat, or 3D printing, like Israeli startup Redefine Meat. In addition, dairy products will be replaced by alternative types of milk, such as Innovopro chickpea products. In addition, the road to 2030 will bring algae-based products, such as those produced by Algaecore Tech, into our eating habits, while leaving a respectable place for products based on magical mushrooms rich in umami and protein, such as those developed by Algaecore Tech. Kinoko-Tech food. Changes in the agricultural scene in 2030 will not only be on our plate, but agronomic experience will be combined with big data and artificial intelligence to increase crop yields, as well as smart vertical indoor agriculture, such as that developed by Israeli startups at Vertical Fields while LivingGreen will dominate urban spaces to reduce agricultural land shortages. »

Climatic technologies

Rami Rechef (GenCell): “I am convinced that, together with revolutionary new materials, scientific technology will stimulate the hydrogen economy and accelerate the transition to renewable energy sources, which are necessary for a sustainable future. To date, the huge potential of hydrogen as a driver of decarbonization has not yet been realized. Huge investments in hydrogen vehicles, gas stations and electrolyzers have prevented widespread deployment due to problems with hydrogen transportation and storage. These resolutions are needed for renewable energy to play a central role in the energy economy of the future. We believe that breakthroughs in hydrogen carriers will allow us to produce innovative, clean and economical energy in the form of accumulated fuel to replenish renewable resources, while providing ubiquitous, uninterrupted and carbon energy anywhere, anytime. These changes in the hydrogen economy will eventually replace fossil fuels and allow us to achieve ambitious decarbonisation targets with sufficient support before time runs out. »

food delivery technology

Ami Palgi (Grubhub): “GenZ is managing the future of food delivery. They spend most of their income ordering food online, and prefer to buy food online rather than cook because of their busy schedule and fast-paced lifestyle. This will lead to new trends; first, use new channels to place orders via tweets, smart watches or from your car; secondly, different delivery options, from robots to drones and parachutes; and third, niche delivery services, such as pet food delivery, environmental garbage service, virtual kitchens, and even blockchain-based cryptocurrency food orders. Israel will play a central role in these trends, both as a leader in new technologies (for example, our innovation center TLV, which specializes in robotic delivery) and as an early participant in new trends. »

Video games

Elay De Beer (Buff Technologies): “In a decade, games, video games and the Metauniverse will become the main entertainment channel in our lives. The world of video games will continue to grow, content will be richer, easier to access and personalized. Support technology will improve significantly with the development of graphics engines, as well as ancillary equipment such as virtual reality glasses and other technologies. The future of games is thriving and will allow game developers and gamers to have a more exciting, fun and realistic experience than ever before. Israeli companies will play an active and dominant role in the growth of the gaming industry and the metaworld. The Israeli technology industry has high entrepreneurial skills and innovative technologies that can and will be used in the gaming industry. If the previous decade was a cyber decade, the next will be a decade of games in Israel. Leading companies, entrepreneurs and technologies will take an active part in building the future of the gaming industry. »
