The closing keynote address at the CDFAM Computational Design (+DfAM) Symposium, held in New York City in 2023 by Prof. Neil Gershenfeld, Director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms.

Keynote Title: Roadmap to Replicators

Prof. Neil Gershenfeld, a leader in the integration of digital and physical domains, provides a closing keynote address that delves into the cutting-edge advancements shaping the confluence of the digital and physical worlds. Prof. Gershenfeld’s unique laboratory at MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms has been at the forefront of innovation, from pioneering quantum computing to digital fabrication and the Internet of Things.

In his keynote, Prof. Gershenfeld outlines a roadmap to the development of replicators that seamlessly combine digital and physical fabrication processes. He offers insights into the trajectory of these technologies and how they are poised to revolutionize manufacturing, material science, and more.

As the founder of a global network of over two thousand fab labs in 125 countries, and as the chair of the Fab Foundation and leader of the Fab Academy, Prof. Gershenfeld brings a wealth of knowledge and a global perspective on the transformative potential of digital fabrication and interconnected technologies.
