To focus on “developmental and applied research” centered on the introduction, application, implementation, management, and performance of “Exponential Technologies” to radically transform the world’s economies for the advancement and betterment of human society. The Research Center is especially interested in research that will stimulate, provoke, and influence the transformation of the Sub-Saharan African (SSA) economies through these technologies to dramatically improve the business, health, education, and general welfare of this very important region of the world.
The Drs. Terry and Linda Byrd Research Center is a research institution that examines, analyzes, surveys, assesses, grades, and understands so-called Exponential Technologies and their utilization in advancing the business, health, education, and general welfare of humanity, especially in the SSA region. Exponential Technologies are technologies that are advancing at an exponential rate and have the potential to thoroughly and entirely change the entire trajectory of human development.
Technologies of interest includes rapidly growing technologies such as:
The world is being digitized at an alarming rate as Exponential Technologies infiltrate every part of human society such as business, health, education, energy, and communications. Digitization ultimately leads to two powerful characteristics of Exponential Technologies, democratization and decentralization. Inherent in these characteristics is the implication that power and wealth that have largely been in the hands of a few powerful governments, enormously large organizations, and the wealthiest among us can finally begin to move and reside in the hands of everyone, everywhere in the world. The Research Center is acutely interested in investigating this transformation of the world by these Exponential Technologies and informing the world as we transition into a new Third Generation Economy.
