Matt Ridley keynotes at ‘SubOptic’ conference in Paris

Scientist and journalist who champions the potential for human progress, Matt Ridley is the author the best-selling book on the subject, ‘The Rational Optimist’. Last month Matt gave a keynote speech at SubOptic in Paris (22 – 25th April), a conference with the theme ‘From Ocean to Cloud’; which this year covered new areas including as the impact of mobile data on our networks and gaining value from investment, operator and service delivery.

Matt discussed the ways that the cross fertilisation of ideas lead to prosperity-enhancing innovation, drawing an analogy with the way that the recombination of genes leads to genetic innovation, and ranging from the stone age to the internet.
