Mike Treder Reports on Growing Interest in Accelerating Tech Change

Abstract:
IEET Fellow Mike Treder reports on growing interest in the acceleration of technology:

Today I had a meeting with a young man from Denmark, a PhD student currently working as an independent scholar in Washington, D.C. on regulation of nanotechnology at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. He did a two-hour interview with me using a method called "MultiCriteria Mapping." This approach, developed by Professor Andrew Stirling at the University of Sussex (UK), provides "a structured way to explore which criteria different stakeholders use when they compare different policy options." After about two dozen interviews are completed, they will be analyzed and compiled for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. As soon as I receive the overall results, I will pass them on to you.
