From Bits to Business

Dan Farmer

About the talk:

Technology marches towards further complexity and capabilities, while business and life increasingly rely on computers and networks. The confluence between technology and business in particular is not only interesting but vital to our world's economy. I'll discuss some modestly obscure technological findings and how they and other technology issues relate--or collide--with the real world. Tenuous conclusions will be drawn.
