Q&A With HP Labs on Disruptive Technology

I’ve commented several times in my blog on MIT’s Technology Review being one of my favorite magazines. The January/February issue doesn’t disappoint. The “to market” section had a great blurb on HP’s Project Moonshot with a nice picture of the Redstone Server Development Platform. But my favorite article in this issue was the Q&A With HP Labs director Prith Banerjee on disruptive technologies. Prith gives examples ranging from a Richter accelerometer developed by HP labs that Shell is using for energy exploration to technology like the memristor. Prith also talks about the role of organizations like HP Labs versus the research done in academia and the role of startups. Great weekend reading.
