Prof. Walid Karam, from the University of Balamand, Balamand Al Kurah, Lebanon, is going to visit our University on Friday, May 19th. His talk will start at 11 am in the Visual Computing Lab C 061.
Topic: Value of the Open
We live in an open world despite all boundaries. Technology and the Internet has brought people closer. Societies have evolved to rely on the knowledge economy. Education has transformed from supply of information and basic scientific facts and skills to innovation and creativity. There are new business concepts that strongly rely on open innovation, and new mechanisms to create values. Laws have been put in place to support these new methodologies. This talk will shed the light on these concepts, and will highlight the value of “openness” in the knowledge society.
