    Presentation Title:

    The rise of anti-disciplinarity in R&D.

    Presentation Synopsis:

    “We use the word “anti-disciplinary” at the MIT Media Lab. We want people who both break the boundaries of disciplines and can move seamlessly between them. Worldviews and frameworks are so different between the traditional disciplines that practitioners have a difficult time talking to each other. The anti-disciplinarian has a global worldview that means you can translate what you learn from one discipline into another…” [How to thrive in a world where change is constant | ideas.ted.com]

    In this talk Emanuele will explore advantages and disadvantages of anti-disciplinarity in modern industrial R&Ds and their applications and best practices in IBM Research.
