World Affairs

Over the past fifty years, we have experienced two fundamental digital revolutions, one in computing and one in communication. Today, we’re entering a third digital revolution, that of fabrication. From medical advancements to weapon design, in this hour, we’ll discuss what widespread digital fabrication could mean for the future. In conversation with World Affairs CEO Jane Wales are brothers Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, Professor, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University, Alan Gershenfeld, Co-Founder and President, E-Line Media, and Neil Gershenfeld, Director, Center for Atoms and Bits, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
