Devices are hitting the market and maturing at an ever increasing rate. Can leading tech companies like Apple and Samsung keep up?
During a recent visit to Wharton, actor, writer and producer Felicia Day talked about how she bypassed Hollywood's gatekeepers to achieve success online on her own terms.
The influence that emotions have on consumers -- and whether it can spur sales gains -- was the focus of a recent Wharton conference.
For Valerie Amos, the UN's Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, there is never enough food, aid or will to "get the necessary work done."
New Wharton research shows that getting politically conservative consumers to adopt energy efficient products may be less about convincing them of the benefits of going green and more about showing them value that people of all political persuasions can appreciate.
If the technology industry can boast a true renaissance man, it is Jaron Lanier. A polymathic computer scientist, composer, visual artist and author, Lanier first found fame by popularizing the term "virtual reality" (VR) in the early 1980s and founding VPL Research to develop VR products. Today, Lanier is best known as the author of two influential books on the future of the digital world in which we live: the recently released Who Owns the Future?
and 2010's best-selling You Are Not a Gadget
. These books have earned Lanier a reputation as the technology industry's conscience -- a role that has won him friends and foes in equal measure among the digerati. Knowledge@Wharton recently spoke with Lanier about who he believes will own the future.
