Programming a New Reality: Digital Fabrication Technology
Prof. Neil Gershenfeld is the director of the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms (http://cba.mit.edu/), the first of a series of “Fab Labs” worldwide, which have pioneered the concept of personalized digital fabrication. In Oct. 2015, he presented a talk at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, about revolutionizing digital manufacturing, by developing software that merges computation with communication and 3D fabrication.
A recent paper by Prof. Gershenfeld on related topics is given here.
Prof. Gershenfeld also presented a similar keynote talk at the International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2016).
