The Future of Distributed Manufacturing and 3D Printing
November 10, 2016
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “3D printing is already shaking our age-old notions of what can and can’t be made.” (Hod Lipson) It may not be far in the future when a significant amount of the products manufactured today in the four walls of a factory are actually manufactured in a store, repair shop or even a home. How? Distributed Manufacturing leveraging 3D printing is pushing the bounds of the possible. Technology has already moved beyond 3D printed sugar cubes and pasta to building 3D printed cars and even prosthetic limb replacement. What is the timeline of scaling from toys to a real, productive business approach? And how do IoT and security figure into the mix? The experts speak. Alan Amling, UPS: “Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be” (John Wooden). Rick Smith, Fast Radius: “The future ain’t what it used to be” (Yogi Berra). Gil Perez, SAP: “I failed my way to success” (Thomas Edison). Join us for The Future of Distributed Manufacturing and 3D Printing.
Future of Business with Game Changers, Presented by SAP
Tuesday at 7 AM Pacific Time/10 AM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
The world of business is being dramatically impacted by the increasing adoption of the Cloud, and by the mainstreaming of new technologies that have hitherto been the domain of imaginative Hollywood films, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, augmented reality and more.
Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she invites you to take an additional coffee break with game-changers for our series on how modern technology is completely redefining the world of business, on the Future of Business with Game-Changers.
With digital transformation becoming a mission-critical imperative, every company needs to simultaneously chart its future path while keeping an eye on the rear-view mirror to see who’s coming up in the fast lane to overtake them. In many ways, this is making every business a technology business, no matter their size, industry or geographic location.
