New technologies solve big problems. They also expand human possibilities and help to shape our future. Join MIT Technology Review and Sagentia for a special presentation on the most important technological breakthroughs of the past year and their potential role in future product development.
Each year the editors of MIT Technology Review select 10 emerging technologies that they feel will change the world. Be among the first to hear Jason Pontin, editor-in-chief and publisher of MIT Technology Review, introduce this year's 10 Breakthrough Technologies, highlighting how they chose the technologies and the problems they have the potential to address. Dr Nicholas Collier, CTO of Sagentia, will then evaluate a selection of the technologies from an R&D perspective, discussing both technical challenges and market focused opportunities. Nick will also provide some unique insight into how to evaluate and commercialize technical advances and share his views on other potential breakthrough technologies.
