Bologna, October 12th 2013
An analysis of the history of technology shows that technological hange is exponential, contrary to the common-sense "intuitive linear" view.
Bologna will host
the first TEDx entirely focused
on exponential innovation.
To find an answer, TEDxBologna curator and his scientific committee has pinpointed 12 of the greatest Italian innovators who will lead the public to discover how the acceleration of the technological progress is changing the world.
We're convinced that the future will be much more surprising than we're used to think: we think that the consequences of accelerating innovations haven't really been grasped yet and in Italy, more than elsewhere, we need to spread the awareness of the main forces that drive global economy been.
