Jason Pontin, MIT Technology Review’s editor in chief and publisher, will be joined by Astro Teller of Google[x] to open our 2014 program with a discussion on the potential global impact of innovative new technologies.
Delving into the role that new technologies will play in providing a sustainable food supply for 9 billion people by 2050.
10 Breakthrough Technologies 2014: Mobile Collaboration
Exploring a future for work that will depend on businesses shifting from a model of central control to one that puts user needs at the center of an IT strategy.
10 Breakthrough Technologies 2014: Microscale 3-D Printing
Inks made from different types of materials, precisely applied, are greatly expanding the kinds of items that can be printed.
New neuroengineering technologies are making it possible to understand complex brain processes such as memory and consciousness while offering possibilities for changing how we think, feel, and remember.
Computer scientists have created machines that have the balance and agility to walk and run across rough and uneven terrain, making them far more useful in navigating human environments.
The workplace of the not-too-distant future will be buzzing with robots and drones. What will be the impact of the arrival of increasingly smart, agile machines?
Solve for X is a community of people working to accelerate progress on technology "moonshots" — radical ideas for solving global problems. These ideas are radical in the sense that the resulting solutions could help millions (or billions) of people, their sheer audacity makes them sound like science fiction, and these ideas reflect some real breakthrough or new approach that makes us believe they could be brought to life. We meet in person and online.
We'll be running a special interactive Solve for X workshop at this year’s EmTech MIT. After hearing short proposals from three technology pioneers, our audience will break into small groups for brainstorming. They'll spend about two-thirds of their time generating feedback (for example, ideas for overcoming known hurdles), and the remaining time offering constructive critiques (for example, identifying remaining questions and potential blind spots). Then we'll all gather to report back.
Join us to experience this unique format for collaborating on moonshot projects. You’ll take away a new approach to fueling truly groundbreaking innovation.
