With the recent passage of the America Invents Act and several new customer announcements, the last month has been a busy one at IV, and we’ve talked a lot about patents here on Insights. But IV has also made headlines in the scientific community, and we wanted to share some of our recent highlights:
- CEO and co-founder Nathan Myhrvold spoke with MSNBC.com for the outlet’s “Future of Technology” video series, which recently posted a segment about TerraPower and the future of nuclear energy. In addition to the overview video with comments from Nathan and other industry experts, there is also a brief video in which he spoke to the importance of intellectual property in a project as large as TerraPower.
- In his monthly guest column for Bloomberg, Nathan discussed the process of hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”) to collect natural gas, and the influence it has had on the push for alternative energy sources.
- The TerraPower team posted on the forecasted dramatic rise in global energy consumption over the next twenty years, and the role nuclear options like TerraPower can play as part of the solution.
- Vice President Kostas Mallios recently spoke at TEDxAcademy in Greece. Titled “The Value of Ideas,” Kostas' talk centered on the historical value of intellectual property in driving innovation, and its current role in the changing technology landscape.
