description

In the history of computing, few organizations have made a dent that can equal the impact of PARC. From the laser printer to bitmapped displays and the graphical user interface, the ideas that were gestated in their labs have made their way onto practically all desktops (and pockets) worldwide. This trend continues today as PARC and the scores of researchers, ethnographers, scientists and technologists they employ provide custom R&D services to clients like Samsung, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, and the U.S. military.

In this session, Tamara St. Claire will explore how PARC merges elements of the "Open Innovation" model advocated by Dr. Henry Chesbrough with its own agile experimentation framework and human-centered design processes to create breakthroughs in big data, mobile computing, cleantech, printed electronics, and networking which can be applied to any organization who wants to create new markets or business models -- or disrupt existing ones.
