ARMONK, N.Y. -- Irving Wladawsky-Berger, chairman emeritus of the IBM Academy of Technology, will give a free, open-to-the-public lecture titled "The Changing Nature of Innovation" in Our 21st Century Digital Society on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 4 p.m. in Reid Castle at Manhattanville College in Purchase.

“We are delighted to have Dr. Wladawsky-Berger inaugurate our Provost’s Distinguished Lecture Series,” said Lisa Dolling, provost of the college. “His insights into our rapidly evolving digital world are unparalleled.”

Today’s digital technologies present us with a new set of challenges as they enable us to develop systems with seemingly unlimited capabilities and unprecedented reach. This talk will explore the changing nature of 21st century innovation, emphasizing the need to balance the “hard” capabilities of technology, science, and business with the seemingly “softer” – yet indispensable – skills of design thinking, liberal arts, and culture.

Wladawsky-Berger served as vice president of Technical Strategy at IBM for almost four decades. He serves as executive-in-residence at NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress and is a Visiting Lecturer at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, among other positions.

Manhattanville College is at 2900 Purchase St., Purchase.
