Articles

I write and speak about technology and its impact on our daily lives and economy. I have authored three books and several articles about various technologies, including driverless cars and artificial intelligence, 3D printing, entrepreneurship, and commercializing university R&D.

To see the articles from my former blog, Tech Transfer 2.0, you can download a free pdf of compiled articles or buy the book, Tech Transfer 2.0   from amazon.  See my full resume here and my books here.
