Themes of TTF Dream: Technology
“Technology is itself a body of knowledge about certain classes of events and activities… It is a knowledge of techniques, methods, and designs that work, and that work in certain ways and with certain consequences, even when one cannot explain exactly why. It is therefore… not a fundamental kind of knowledge, but rather a form of knowledge...”
Nathan Rosenberg, Inside the black box: Technology and economics
Instead of thinking design as a way to better use technologies, TTF Dream encourages early engagement of design thinking in the development phases of technologies, from fundamental science discovery, to experimental findings of applied science, to invention, and entrepreneurial acts of innovation.
Submissions may be applications of emerging technologies or imaginations of foreseeable future technologies that serve greater societal purposes.
