The seminar will discuss work being done by the National Academies' Forum on Information Technology and Research Universities, which Professor Duderstadt chairs
This presentation will summarize the recent activities of the IT-Forum, a National Academies task force studying the implications of rapidly evolving digital technology for the future of the research university. Our early studies suggest that these disruptive technologies will demand a reconsideration of the most fundamental missions, values, and character of the university.
