What Are Our Greatest Economic Benefits, Risks, and Control Options?

This is an essential question, and perhaps one that only an informed and diverse community can properly entertain. We each have our own perspectives, and our personal insights and perceptions are always improved in public interchange with inquisitive minds.

As John Kao says, the strength of a network is proportional to the diversity and intellectual and emotional commitment of its members. As Buckminster Fuller says, one cannot get an unbiased education, so our real world goal should be to get a multi-biased one. This argues that we be exposed to the full range of human thought on the benefits, risks and control options of our accelerating future, and be able to articulate all the major views on controversial and important questions of insight and action, regardless of the particular position we currently hold.

Join us at the world's first annual gathering devoted to exploring the continually accelerating changes in science and technology, and the near-term and longer-term implications, risks, and opportunities for business and society. ACC2003 is a conference of passionate and multidisciplinary minds, all sharing a common interest in better understanding and guiding accelerating change.
