“The IES and Disruptive Technology Affecting the Lighting Industry”
By Mel Fabrikant Tuesday, October 08, 2013, 02:57 PM EDT
Hello IES Member,
It all started with a disruptive technology called the incandescent light bulb that changed the way the world thought about light.
The IES was formed as a participant in this disruption and sought to describe and define both the quantitative and the qualitative aspects of this new technology – what is the Holy Grail of light?
That search continues to this day as another disruptive technology again changes the manner in which we think about light.
No, not the LED, the introduction of solid state technology. What does the future hold for the IES and the lighting industry in the midst of these disruptive technologies?
• Identify the key changes in the Society’s search to identify light
• Compare significant metrics used
• Analyze the current state of evolving disruptive technology
• Predict the effects of these disruptions to the future of light
