Breakthrough Technologies
Alex Steffen, 24 Mar 04

Breakthrough Technologies for the World's Biggest Problems, an Arlington Institute conference at the end of April, looks to be right down our alley: any conference where Hunter Lovins and Ray Kurzweil are both speaking is bound to be interesting! (Thanks, Jen!)

"Humanity’s future is inextricably tied to technology. The biggest problems looming on our near horizon will only be solved with new perspectives…and new tools. The biggest potential disasters that humanity has ever experiences also idle within view...fueled and enabled by emerging technologies.

"As a species, we cannot stop. But we must move ahead intelligently.  We have to learn how to utilize new breakthrough technologies to solve our biggest, intractable problems—and not kill ourselves in the process.  Our social systems must quickly adapt to the unprecedented, accelerating technological change that surrounds us."
