Touching The Future
HP CEO Dion Weisler sat down with Salesforce co-CEO Keith Block at Salesforce's Dreamforce conference for a "fireside chat" that touched upon many topics, including Weisler's career and family, leadership philosophy, and the course of his company since the technology stalwart was split in two.
Weisler and Block spent much of their time on the topic of 3D printing—a technology that both said they expect to revolutionize manufacturing in ways still largely unknown.
3-D printing was a natural progression for a company where "we wake up every day and think about printing and personal systems," Weisler said.
Since launching investments in that technology, the pace of innovation has been "insane," Weisler said. HP is now building printers that can manufacture parts from steel, and have circuitry embedded within them that makes those parts come "alive."
Where that technology goes, and how it reshapes the world, is only limited by the imagination, he said.
