In this workshop, the video of the 2012 TED talk “Abundance is our Future” by visionary Peter Diamandis will be viewed and discussed.

The TED talk is optimistic about innovation and its role in solving our global challenges. “I’m not saying we don’t have our set of problems; we surely do. But ultimately, we knock them down.” The speaker featured in the video, Peter Diamandis, is an international pioneer in the fields of innovation, incentive
competitions and commercial space; he is chair of the X Prize Foundation and of Singularity University.

The NINT Salons bring together local researchers of diverse backgrounds to discuss nano-enabled solutions to big challenges.

Everyone is welcome! Refreshments will be served starting at 2:45 pm.
