Weaponized Knowledge

Tue Jun 19 2018 (58:56)

Knowledge mobilization, knowledge translation, and knowledge transfer and exchange – what do these terms really mean? Do you know the difference between innovation and invention? Simon updates Deena on “broader impact” and his take on a recent conference he attended in Winnipeg. As a topic of interest, Simon shares a recent article he came across in the Globe & Mail about Canadian research with an industry partner that led to a patent for the company. However, this intellectual property, 5g technology now owned by Huawei, the industry partner, will be sold back to Canada. It could also be used in ways that do not align with Canadian interests.
