Realizing the Digital Enterprise

Realizing the Digital Enterprise

Computing systems and manufacturing are increasingly embedded in our physical world, with automation, intelligence, scale, and interconnectedness bridging the physical and digital worlds through visible and invisible infrastructure. However, this interconnectedness brings unanticipated social consequences and volatile patterns of acceptance and use that impact personal and collective well-being. Our vision is to pair technological capability and social responsibility to create successful cyber–physical experiences.
