IN THIS EPISODE
As we move to a world driven by big data, and powered by algorithms, the “techies,” or those who have studied engineering and computer sciences, are of great importance. But as we prioritize Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects, we must also consider the overlooked but equally valuable role that the Liberal Arts play in our technological world. These “fuzzies,” as they are known in the parlance of Stanford University, are of equal, and increasing, importance in helping us apply our new tools with context, consideration, and relevance to the greatest human problems. A new generation of entrepreneurs, those who are both fuzzy-and-techie, is fast emerging.
