Innovation: Dead or Alive
ven. 5 octobre à 01:30
7:30-8:00 -- A little wine, or non-alcoholic beverage and a snack.... a little chit chat... and making friends
8:00-9:30 -- TED TALK DISCUSSION For MeetUp #5, we will discuss the ideas presented in two TED Talks from 2013 on whether innovation and growth are dead, or just going through an adjustment period and ready to grow again as we learn how to work together with machines. One speaker is more of a pessimist, and one speaker is more of an optimist. Who do you agree with? What does death of innovation or continued growth mean to us as individuals and to society at large? Please listen to these two talks (each about 12 min long) and come prepared to share your thoughts and exchange ideas with others in the group TALK #1. Robert Gordon (economist) Death of Innovation/ End of Growth
