The Keynote

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend the 2017 ESRI User Conference due to unforeseen software upgrades. As in previous years when I could not attend, I kept my eye peeled on the ESRI video pages to see what I can glean from the comfort of my office cubicle. Today I was delighted to watch the keynote speech by Dr. Geoffrey West, Theoretical Physicist and Author.

I’m amazed by the fact he used the second law of thermodynamics and singularities to explain the growth of cities and what’s needed in the future. It is most definitely worth the 53+ minutes of your time.
