Infosys Prize Lecture by 2010 Laureate Prof. Ashutosh Sharma on Nanotechnology and Nature-Inspired Technologies
Date:Thursday, November 17, 2011
Infosys Prize 2010
Engineering and Computer Science Laureate
Prof. Ashutosh Sharma,
Institute Chair Professor & Coordinator, DST Unit on Nanoscience, IIT Kanpur
In this talk, Prof. Sharma would explore the meaning and power of lateral thinking or scientific creativity by presenting some impersonal lessons from his personal voyages in nanotechnology and nature- inspired technologies. The talk will be at a level accessible to a non-specialist, emphasizing the important role of ideas and scientific common sense even in cutting-edge science, rather than an exclusive reliance on expensive state-of-art infrastructure alone. Needless to add, this facet of problem solving is important in the context of a developing economy like India.
