GE Global Research will host a Google+ Hangout together with experts from industry, academia and government to discuss about the latest in advanced material applications and innovative design capabilities made possible by additive manufacturing.

Panel experts will address key questions regarding the future prospects and growth of the additive industry, such as:

  • What changes and challenges do you foresee as additive manufacturing goes mainstream?
  • What types of jobs and skillsets will make up the additive supply chain?
  • Could additive manufacturing eventually be used to produce very large and complex parts? How large in scale could they go?
  • Additive manufacturing is a significant disruptive technology. What will it look like 50 years from now? How much could it change manufacturing as we know it?

Following a discussion on these topics and others, the floor will open for an interactive Q&A session with attendees. Viewers can submit questions on GE's site via Twitter at #GEResearchLive.
