Panel experts will address key questions regarding the future prospects and growth of the additive industry, such as:
- What changes and challenges do you foresee as additive manufacturing goes mainstream?
- What types of jobs and skillsets will make up the additive supply chain?
- Could additive manufacturing eventually be used to produce very large and complex parts? How large in scale could they go?
- Additive manufacturing is a significant disruptive technology. What will it look like 50 years from now? How much could it change manufacturing as we know it?
Following a discussion on these topics and others, the floor will open for an interactive Q&A session with attendees. Viewers can submit questions at http://www.ge.com/research/live/ or via Twitter at #GEResearchLive.
