For two years, the Innovate New York series has explored the dynamics of how New York City can be a greater center of innovation. Past meetings have examined key sectors of the city’s economy. Please join us for this session, which will assess lessons learned from the series and next steps to keep New York competitive.
This is the sixth event in the Innovate New York series of panel discussions exploring why New York is not widely known as a hub of innovation, despite its acknowledged leadership in many sectors. Examining the role of innovation across fields from finance to arts and culture, this series has convened leaders in science, technology, finance, and business with the public to discuss New York's strengths, opportunities, and challenges.
Innovate New York sessions are held at the Levin Institute’s Global Classroom, a unique theater-in-the round venue, and moderated by Levin’s President, Garrick Utley, whose talent for evoking intense dialogue with both panelists and the audience drives the discussions. Panelists will include Jerry Hultin, President of the Polytechnic Institute of New York University; Irving Wladawsky-Berger, Senior Fellow at the Levin Institute and Chairman Emeritus of the IBM Academy of Technology; and Jim Singer, Partner at A.T. Kearney.
Innovate New York is a partnership of the Levin Institute and the New York Academy of Sciences, and is sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

The notion that humans, in all their complexity, are merely an evolutionary accident is deeply unsatisfying for most non-scientists — what, then, can evolutionary biology ultimately tell us about the meaning of our lives? Paleoanthropologists Melanie Chang and Ian Tattersall, and paleontologist Simon Conway Morris share their insights on these competing concepts, and explain how meaning and purpose can be gleaned from the remarkable story of life itself.
