What is Rhizome?

Rhizome – Connected Kitchen Conference discusses the possibilities and challenges of the post digital relationship between human and machine in the kitchen. The conference aims to generate visions for consumers and businesses through featured discussions, while offering valuable room for networking among participants and speakers in-between.

In keynote presentations and panel discussions experts from science and practice, professionals from social networking, as well as entrepreneurs from the food value chain jointly developed scenarios of how humans and machines will complement each other in the future.

The Kitchen is the new Livingroom.

Mario Pieper

Digitalization will encourage people to be more creative and eat healthy more frequently.

Tim Raue

Seize the vision

Rhizome17 offers an interdisciplinary discussion forum designed to explore and identify the possibilities and challenges that come with the megatrend of connectivity. The post digital era has changed the living environment of humans: man and machine do no longer exist independently from one another, but rather enter into a highly diverse relationship. Rhizome17 has dedicated itself to this paradigm shift at the center of our household: the kitchen.

Don’t miss your opportunity to be visionary.
