D&I Research Seminar by Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld

Stakeholder Alignment in an Era of Exponential Change

Abstract:

The exponential rates of change in digital communication and digital computation have been both transformational and disruptive in society.  A third digital revolution is coming, digital fabrication, which also shows early signs of exponential rates of change.  This is now a crucial time for dialogue and stakeholder alignment on deeply embedded assumptions -- while the technology is still in its early growth stages.  This talk will feature a model for stakeholder alignment with respect to technologies showing signs of exponential change.  The talk draws on a forthcoming book (Basic Books, 2017) coauthored by Neil Gershenfeld, Alan Gershenfeld, and Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld.
