From the boring fact that the number of transistors doubles about every two years comes two related CLE sessions. The first will address how the Supreme Court and Congress have weakened patent law at a time when innovation is (literally) exponentially increasing. The second will address the ethical issues that technology creates for our profession. In both, Professor David Hricik will explain how 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning will impact our society and our profession, and provide tips on how to prepare and adapt for the new world that is… already here.
