The 6th Annual BCN - AI Bio Conference took place in Edmonton in November. The event brings together representatives from industry, government, and academia every year to discuss ways to develop and commercialize biomass conversion technologies. It is a high powered collection of people and ideas so it is fitting that students are invited to take part because not only do they bring new ideas to the meeting, they will inherit the consequences of today's technological decisions.
Some of the students are part of a lightning round of presentations to pitch ideas and technology that can contribute to cleaning up the environment, diversify the economy, and make more efficient use of natural resources.
11 students stepped up to the presentation podium and we have the 3 finalists here for you
in conversation with freelance broadcaster Don Hill.
After you listen to the podcast you can also check out their conference abstracts:
