1280px-mit_logo.svgBig Problems, Big Solutions:  How to Accelerate Technology Diffusion, and Save the World

A lecture by Dr. Robert Alan Feldman, Senior Advisor of Morgan Stanley MUFG Securities Co., Ltd.tences.  (Lecture conducted in Japanese)

Japan and the world face many big problems:  … Food, Energy, Water, Pensions, Medical Care, Future of Work, Income Disparities, etc. However, we have many big solutions as well, such as AI, deep learning, advances in battery storage, drones, space science, biotech, FinTech, etc.

The key to tackling these problems will be faster diffusion of new technology. We can do this through better “technology teamwork.” We need to create a more interactive innovation process that intertwines education, science, engineering, invention, entrepreneurship, corporations, and employment.

Frequent communication across silos will increase the speed of technology development and diffusion, and lead to new solutions for our many big problems. For business, the key is to create a more dense network among the components of the innovation process, and thus invent new technology, create new markets, and grasp new opportunities.
