Upcoming Talk on Automated, Collaborative, and Distributed Inventing

I will be giving a talk at MIT next Thursday, January 15 from 1-3pm in Room 4-153 on "The Future of Inventing: Automated, Collaborative, and Distributed Inventing."

We usually think of an "inventor" as someone who sits alone in a workshop, sketching designs and hammering out prototypes.  In the future, individual inventorship will increasingly be overtaken by various forms of "collaborative inventing" as inventors leverage computer technology as an inventive tool. The talk will provide real-world examples of the phenomena that are changing the face of inventing.
