The Future of Invention at WorldFuture 2009

I will be giving a talk on "The Future of Inventing" at the WorldFuture 2009 conference on July 19, 2009 from 11am-12pm (see pp. 50-51 of the program for more details). In the talk I will focus on how computers are enabling inventors to invent more efficiently and effectively, and how in the future even people without technical skill may be able to use computers to become inventors.

I will also be available for a meet-the-author session in connection with my book, The Genie in the Machine, on July 19 from 3:30-4:00pm. Copies of The Genie in the Machine will be available for sale at the Futurist Bookstore throughout the conference.

For a preview of the kinds of topics I will be discussing in my talk, see my article in the July-August issue of The Futurist magazine.
