ANNOUNCEMENT: Professor Calestous Juma will chair a one-day conference on social responses to disruptive technologies.
The conference will focus on mapping emerging technologies that could address global grand challenges, review their disruptive characteristics, identify potential sources of social concern, and outline business models and public policies on how to address the social concerns.
The conference builds on the findings of the newly published book, Innovation and Its Enemies: Why People Resist New Technologies (Oxford University Press, 2016). It will also incorporate demonstrations from entrepreneurs who are using innovative technologies to address global challenges.
