TEDxUIUC - David E. Goldberg - 7 Missing Basics of Engineering

David Goldberg talks about seven skills that engineers are missing, skills that are essential for them to be effective in the 21st century. David E. Goldberg is CEO of ThreeJoy Associates, Inc., a consulting and coaching firm, and he also co-directs iFoundry at the UIUC, a programmatic incubator dedicated to the transformation of engineering education. In 2004, he co-founded ShareThis, a web startup with offices in Palo Alto, Cincinnati, and New York. Trained as a civil engineer at the University of Michigan, Dr. Goldberg is perhaps best known for his work on genetic algorithms. In 2006, he co-founded and bootstrapped a series of workshops on philosophy and engineering that continue to this day, and in 2010 he edited the collected volume "Philosophy and Engineering: An Emerging Agenda" (with Ibo van de Poel, Springer, 2010). This talk was recorded at TEDxUIUC 2011 (02/19/11), which was organized at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign by a group of students led by Cristian Mitreanu. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
