Led by the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI), MIT continues to play an important role in advancing low-carbon energy technologies and our understanding of the underlying science—as well as helping to inform future energy policy. Strategic collaboration with its industry members, guided by sophisticated system-level modeling and analysis, has long been a hallmark of MITEI’s approach.
MIT’s Corporate Relations office and MITEI will jointly present a special energy webinar on April 13, featuring several leading researchers drawn from MIT faculty. As a follow-up to this webinar, there will be an interactive webinar on April 15 with a roundtable of MIT researchers and industry leaders, moderated by MITEI Director Robert Armstrong.
Nearly three quarters of a century ago, the Space Age began with a series of government programs to demonstrate our ability to live and work off of the earth’s surface. By the end of the 20th century, major national geostationary communications satellite networks were privatized, and not long after, we saw the emergence of new privately-funded launchers and satellites. The past decade has brought an explosion of new space ventures with ambitions reaching to the moon and beyond.
MIT has been a key player in space from the very beginning. Our guidance systems sent Apollo to the moon in vehicles made from new materials developed at MIT using computers designed in our labs. Today, our graduates populate both the traditional government space and the rapidly expanding private “New Space” industries in key roles, and our innovation ecosystem includes a proliferation of New Space startups with more emerging every year.
The COVID pandemic has only accelerated changes that were already in progress in the way we work, how we work and where we work. It has emphasized other aspects of our lives that depend on making a livelihood, such as where we live, how we balance work/ family/ personal priorities; what career paths will look like; how we collaborate with peers; whose work must be done in person vs done remotely, and who has access to the technologies that enable remote work; health and safety in the workplace; urban planning and even the redesign of our living spaces. There are also implications for business, which will have to accommodate these changes, and also new opportunities emerging that will change their strategic planning and growth.
In this webinar we will engage experts to share their insight from their research, their views on the trends that are now clearly emerging, and their advice on preparing for the future of work, of the workforce, and of the organizations of the future.
Businesses are integrating Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning into every facet of their work, and both customers and companies have come to expect its benefits. But we are far from realizing AI and ML’s potential in many business settings. An understanding of what is possible, and what is still over the horizon, is essential to understanding how businesses can maximize the value of AI and ML.
The MIT Quest for Intelligence, with MIT Corporate Relations and the MIT Industrial Liaison Program, invite you to hear from MIT researchers at the leading edge of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.
In 2021, MIT Lincoln Laboratory is celebrating its 70th year of operation as a Federally Funded Research and Development Center and its 50th year of support to the Federal Aviation Administration. The Laboratory has developed and transitioned a range of technologies to industry to improve aviation safety and efficiency in areas including aircraft surveillance, collision avoidance, weather sensing and forecasting, traffic management, and logistics optimization. Recent thrusts have been focusing on safely increasing autonomy, developing innovative AI/machine learning capabilities, and enabling growth in unmanned aircraft operations.
In this webinar, we will engage with several researchers from Lincoln Laboratory who will provide an outline of recent advances in air traffic control technology and some of the key challenges and opportunities for the future.
