My name is Melba Kurman.  I write about technology and its impact on our daily lives and economy.  I’m particularly interested in driverless cars, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing.

Before I became a writer I worked as a product manager and analyst at Microsoft and helped Cornell University market its patent portfolio to the commercial marketplace.  I am a graduate of Cornell University, the University of Illinois and the U.S. Peace Corps (Liberia, West Africa).  Follow me on twitter @melbakurman
