Peggy and Michael Steep, executive director and adjunct professor disruptive technology and digital cities program, Stanford School of Engineering, talk about disruptive technologies and smart cities. He says disruptive technology is a technology that fundamentally changes a value proposition for an industry.

They also discuss:

  • Why corporate R&D has diminished and why they are missing key opportunities with disruptive technology.
  • How his program is focusing on digital cities by working with corporations to understand the gap in technology, how to monetize it, and let the market actually change the direction of the city.
  • The fictional book, First Light of Day, he wrote about the future—with factual technology that already exists—and how this impacts our workforce.
