Andrew Nelson : The origins and impact of CCRMA

Wed, 04/10/2013 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm
CCRMA Classroom, The Knoll 2nd floor, Rm 217
Event Type: 
 Today, CCRMA enjoys a literal and figurative embeddedness within Stanford and a reputation as one of the world's premiere computer music research groups. Alas, this was not always the case. This colloquium will present a historic "tour" of CCRMA, tracing its "pre-history" in the music and AI activities at Stanford and Bell Labs, through the financial and personnel crises that challenged its first decade, to the enormous influence that it's had on people and organizations around the world.

Andrew Nelson is Assistant Professor of Management and Bramsen Faculty Fellow in innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability at the
University of Oregon's Lundquist College of Business. He received his PhD in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, where he subsequently served as a Lecturer. Andrew also holds an MSc from Oxford University and a BA from Stanford (through CCRMA!). In 2008, he was named to the first class of Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellows, a group of the most promising entrepreneurship faculty in the country. Andrew's research and teaching focus on the diffusion and commercialization of scientific and technological knowledge. He's published several articles on CCRMA and is completing a full-length book on the Center's origin and impact.  With Tom Byers (Stanford) and Dick Dorf (UC Davis), he's also the author of "Technology Ventures: From Idea to Enterprise," published by McGraw-Hill.
