Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society
San Diego, CA | Posted on February 06, 2006
Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" announces the show schedule for Wednesday, 02/08/06, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.
Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:
- Dr. Lisa Randall, Professor of Theoretical Physics, Harvard University, and author of “Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe’s Hidden Dimensions”
- Jack Uldrich, President, The NanoVeritas Group
- Dr. Jim Spohrer, Director, Almaden Services Research, IBM Almaden Research Center
Professor Randall discusses her brilliant new book, “Warped Passages”, which was included in The New York Times list of 100 notable books of 2005. We’ll talk about extra dimensions, string theory, “what we mean by theory”, and exciting new developments in physics and what they mean for us in our day-to-day living.
Mr. Uldrich discusses his new book, “Investing in Nanotechnology: Think Small, Win Big”. We’ll talk about the driving factors behind nanotechnology’s growth, near-term applications of nanotechnology, and the implications of nanotechnology for the energy sector, information sciences, and the life sciences.
Dr. Spohrer discusses SSME — Services Sciences, Management, Engineering. SSME affects the GDP growth of nations and revenue and profit growth of companies. Dr. Spohrer proposes an academic discipline and research agenda, and discusses “scale laws” of service innovation.
