Innovation: The Driving Force Behind Science and Technology

Published Wed Feb 06 2019


Dean Kamen is an American entrepreneur, inventor, and tireless advocate for science and technology. His inventions include the revolutionary Segway personal transportation system and IBOT, a uniquely designed powered wheelchair that 'walks' over curbs and stairs. At the age of 30, Dean sold his first company and in 1982 founded DEKA Research & Development Corp. His roles as inventor and advocate are intertwined with his own passion to focus on medical innovations aimed at improving lives around the world. In 1989 he founded FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), an organization dedicated to motivating young people to understand, use, and enjoy science and technology. In Dean's session, you will hear about his push for big ideas, his cool gizmos, and his quest for the next generation of miracles. This session was recorded at the ATD 2019 TechKnowledge conference in West Palm Beach, Florida.
