On June 21, 2017, I had the privilege of speaking to the INCOSE Chesapeake Chapter on the topic of Systems Science, Systems Engineering and Systems Thinking — using the catchy title, "Zen and the Art of Systems Thinking." Here I include the slides and references for those who want to explore my talk in more detail.
On July 27, 2015, I gave a Keynote Address to the Summer Simulation Multi-Conference for the Society for Modeling & Simulation International (SCS). I talked about micro-verse, the Incredible Hulk, the history everyday reality, Internet of Things, the Science of (or lack there-of) Systems Engineering, the concept of Emergence, and M&S. It ended with a big heartfelt thank-you to all the modelers present.
Here are my slides and references for those who want more detail on my lecture. Enjoy.
In 2014 I gave two talks dealing with the newly released INCOSE Vision 2025. I gesticulated about how difficult it is to predict the future. But System Engineers should be at the forefront of innovation and invention as we bring a holistic point of view to these complex and world spanning problems. So take your place in making a better world and a brighter future.
For those who want more detail, I have links to the videos of my lecture, my slides and all my references. Enjoy.
