According to a recent CSIROScope blog post referencing the Australia’s Biosecurity Future report says “the system won’t cope with the increasing threat and complexity of disease, pest and weed incursions over the next decade. Growing levels of trade and travel, urbanisation, climate change, biodiversity loss, and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) are all creating new challenges. And our current biosecurity system isn’t designed to meet them”.

Human activity has been a threat to the planet’s wildlife for a while, as humans have used nature and wildlife for their advantage for centuries. The planet's wildlife has been under threat from various kinds of human activities. This has caused environmental damage, which includes habitat destruction, illegal wildlife trade, the spread of invasive species and diseases and the impact on these interferences on the Earth's climate. However, with advanced and innovative technology, humanity is now working to preserve and rebuild the environment in innovative ways. EarlyBirds is working towards bringing together innovative minds who are redefining the use of technology in conservation efforts.

Quantum computing is a drastic leap from current computing technology. While conventional computers use bits, which can either be 1 or 0, quantum computers use quantum bits or qubits. This allows the representation of information as vectors. Several dimensions of processing can occur in a qubit, and as more qubits are used, they can be interlinked such that the computing power grows exponentially. This is why it can undertake cryptography much faster and impossible with conventional computing technology.

Current renewable energy adoption is on the rise in countries all around the world. In 2019, approximately 11% of global energy was produced through renewable technologies. The global renewable energy market was valued at $928 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach $1.5 trillion by 2025. There is a huge opportunity in setting up services that ride this wave of progress. Currently, renewable energy is hampered by the lack of funding in research and the high cost of materials and technology.
