How does progress happen? We use knowledge to ask questions and conduct experiments to expand this knowledge. The power of these experiments depends largely on the knowledge we use to ask the questions.
Scientific research has, for a long time, taken place in silos with vast amounts of knowledge created in very specialized areas by scientists who have highly specialized skill sets. Staying within these knowledge silos limits our capacity to answer the existential questions of our time, but working in the spaces between them can offer new perspectives on these challenges.
