Innovation To The Rescue With Ramez Naam
With so many global challenges — climate change, overpopulation, natural-resource depletion — Ramez Naam argues that the only solution is innovation. Naam is a computer scientist who spent a decade at Microsoft, where he helped develop early versions of Outlook and Internet Explorer. He’s currently adjunct faculty at Singularity University.
Naam’s latest book is called “The Infinite Resource: The Power of Ideas on a Finite Planet.” He spoke about the science and technology that power us in the future in a talk recorded at Town Hall on September 9, 2013.
