October 2009

» Wednesday, October 14th
» 6:15 - 8:00pm program
» 8:00 - 9:00pm networking reception
» MIT's Kirsch Auditorium in the Stata Center | map & directions

Please join us for a keynote presentation by one of the most prolific and diverse technology innovators, Ray Kurzweil, followed by a deep conversation led by Sim Simeonov of FastIgnite.

Impervious to the roller-coaster ride of the financial markets, the past decade has brought about an unprecedented acceleration in technology development and adoption combined with a rapid decline in the cost of anything touched by IT. Open-source, software-as-a-service, cloud computing, user-generated content, freemium and viral distribution models share one thing in common: they lower the cost of experimentation and make it cheaper and easier to create new things while at the same time destroying existing business models.

The democratization of innovation is a turbulent process. Rapid creation and violent destruction. Many winners and many losers, both big and small. Are there patterns of success in the chaos? Ray Kurzweil definitely thinks so. He has been on the bleeding edge of innovation for decades and his track record is something to admire.
