Innovation Series Event: Big Ideas, Big Solutions - How Can We Solve More Big Problems?
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Remember when we dreamed of flying to the moon…and kids literally dreamed of becoming rocket scientists and politicians made policy that enabled innovation? Most of us don’t. Since Apollo 17’s flight in 1972, no humans have been back to the moon, or gone anywhere beyond low Earth orbit. Cars still travel on roads and robots are not quite cleaning houses (at least nothing like the robots in the Jetsons).

For March’s panel, we will follow the lead of MIT Technology Review’s "Big Problems, Big Solutions” Issue, by having four speakers talk about their big ideas. We will lead off with comments from Jason Pontin, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of MIT Technology Review and Chairman of MIT Enterprise Forum. The discussion will be moderated by Brian Bergstein, Deputy Editor of MIT Technology Review. Panelists will run the gamut from trailblazers in cancer genomics and Alzheimer’s/Dementia to online education (of Harvard/MIT style) to self-assembly, "smart” components that can actually assemble themselves. Each of the panelists still believe that changing the world is possible…and have committed their careers to Big Ideas and to Big Dreams. Although each story will be different, these speakers will challenge us all to think beyond 140 characters and to still believe that anything is possible.
