Joining us for this discussion will be Stuart Seligman, who is currently organizing a local discussion group inspired by FastForward Radio. A long time listener to Fast Forward Radio, Stuart has had an abiding interest in Science and technology since as a kid he propped a telescope up in his backyard with his father, scanned the night sky and tried to figure out how he could get up there. Stuart started his career as a wall street economic analyst and wound up in structured finance. He developed an expertise in using neural networks and genetic algorithms to solve financial problems. After working for money center banks and small investment firms, Stuart became an entrepreneur and was involved in starting several startups. His new group will be meeting at the Monmouth County Library , Monmouth County, New Jersey and will discuss the scientific and technological changes that are occurring, the opportunities that they represent, and how perhaps to take advantage of them.
