Science matters, now more than ever. It will play a defining role in determining the wellbeing and prosperity of everyone today and our children and grandchildren tomorrow. There is a new urgency to science, and we need solutions fast. This year in particular marks a critical juncture for global action to address our most complex challenges. This talk will discuss the role of bits, neurons and qubits and their collective ability to accelerate the discovery of new drugs and materials and the framework for a new international organization called the Science Readiness Reserves (SRR) to help us prepare for the uncertainties of the future.
