Paul Markillie discusses the future of innovation

Paul Markillie, a global expert on the disruptive impact of new technologies and Innovation Editor for The Economist Magazine, joins us for three quick questions on the future of innovation as a part of the Chartwell Podcast series.

Paul is particularly excited about the potential of nano-satellite technology (pictured above), which can do much of the same jobs that a big satellite can do but for a fraction of the cost. Listen in to find out more!

Here is a video in which Paul discusses three of the stories in the latest issue:

(i) the use of 3D printers to produce human tissues, a development which will eventually lead to organs for transplantation being printed on demand.

(ii) the future of chip-making as it becomes increasing difficult to make powerful semiconductors that rely on silicon.

(iii) ghostly drone ships, which are autonomous cargo vessels that could set sail without a crew.
