*Presentation Summary*:
Silicon Valley is unique in the world as a region of scientific and
technological innovation.  States throughout the U.S. and countries
across the world have attempted to duplicate the Valley’s success, only to
fail to meet their objectives.  What are the characteristics of this region
that make innovation so prevalent?  Here in South Korea, innovation has
been seen as one of the most important economic missions of the entire
country.  Yet, there remain strong doubts about the country’s
innovation infrastructure.  Danny’s Fulbright research assumes two
controversial points: that creativity is in everyone, and that innovation
is fundamentally about people and not institutions.  His research began
with the training of engineers at KAIST, and has expanded into issues of
urban planning, design thinking, creativity, and labor economics.  His
presentation will weave these disparate threads together to build a novel
approach to creating innovation through policy.

Danny Crichton has been immersed in innovation and technology for his
entire life.  He graduated from Stanford University with a B.S. in
Mathematical and Computational Science, and has worked at CollabRx, a
medical software start-up, the Central Intelligence Agency, and Google.  He
has submitted six patents to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.  His
research agenda focuses on the development of regional innovation hubs and
the sociology of innovators.
