Portfolio - - PORTFOLIO IN THIS ISSUE - BY SO­PHIE KALKREUTH

Call it in­no­va­tion in a time warp. Or in­no­va­tion on steroids. Or sim­ply the in­no­va­tion of rapid in­no­va­tion. But with tech­nol­ogy driv­ing in­no­va­tion at an in­creas­ingly dizzy­ing pace the fu­ture seems both ex­cit­ing and a lit­tle daunt­ing. We are build­ing ever-greater tools but we’re also fac­ing un­prece­dented chal­lenges and only time will tell how we man­age to ne­go­ti­ate the two. From su­per­sonic flight to genetically en­gi­neered bac­te­ria, here are some mile­stones to watch out for in 2018.
