Prof. Neil Gershenfeld
Roadmap to Replicators
Prof. Neil Gershenfeld is the Director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, where his unique laboratory is breaking down boundaries between the digital and physical worlds, from pioneering quantum computing to digital fabrication to the Internet of Things. He’s the founder of a global network of over two thousand fab labs in 125 countries, chairs the Fab Foundation, and leads the Fab Academy.
Professor Ronald Rael is the Eva Li Memorial Chair in Architecture at the University of California Berkeley. He is an architect, author, and thought leader in additive manufacturing, borderwall studies, and earthen architecture. He is the co-founder of Emerging Objects, a creatively-driven design consultancy specializing in innovations in 3D printing architecture, building components, environments, and products; and FORUST, a company focused on 3D printing wood. His new initiative, Muddy Robots, is a new paradigm in building construction, coupling humankind’s oldest building material with advanced additive manufacturing technology to create housing that can save the planet.
