Why Illinois Was Ground Zero for Innovation

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Ripples generated by technological innovations that have occurred in Illinois have traversed the globe. It was here that John Deere invented the self-scouring plow and Cyrus McCormick perfected and manufactured his mechanical reaper, dramatically increasing the efficiency and productivity of American agriculture. Author John Wasik will discuss how and why Illinois became such a hub of innovation. He will invite audiences to contemplate what must be done to ensure that our state can thrive in a global economy in which automation and digital technology are increasingly prevalent.
