Transportation, power generation, and electricity generation depend heavily on the combustion of fossil and synthetic fuels. The next generation of combustion systems will need to be more efficient with lower emissions than the current. In this talk, I will discuss the coupling effects of two crucial components of combustion, chemical kinetics and fluid dynamics, on flame dynamics and soot emissions, and the physical insights for future combustion design. I will also discuss future research directions that combine combustion and material sciences to develop new technologies for energy sustainability.
The promise of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is beginning to be realized in many businesses and industries. Customers are interacting with AI and ML every day, and are coming to expect its benefits in their personal and professional interactions with companies. But we are far from realizing AI and ML’s potential in many business settings. An awareness of what is possible, and what is just over the horizon, is essential to understanding the landscape, planning and driving business decision making in the space.
MIT’s Quest for Intelligence, along with the Corporate Relations office and ILP, invite you to hear from MIT's faculty at the leading edge of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. From research into privacy-preserving ML, to creating robust and deployable AI, to improving human-AI collaboration, MIT faculty will share their insights on the path to the AI/ML frontier.
Meet top emerging MIT-connected startups during this 2-day webinar featuring startups from MIT Startup Exchange’s accelerator program, STEX25. The format is fast-paced, exposing attendees to a broad cross selection of technologies and use cases applicable to many different companies and industries. Sixteen startups will be presenting ‘lightning talks’ followed by Q&A.
Of special note, there will be brief panel discussions on topics related to startup-corporate partnerships. This is a great opportunity for corporate executives and startups alike to learn about challenges that can emerge when the two sides collaborate, and how to create circumstances to improve chances of successful partnerships.
Humans are visual beings and therefore optical elements—lenses, mirrors, gratings, optical fibers, etc.—have been playing a pivotal role in almost all aspects of the human society. Conventional optics are however bulky, complicated, and sensitive even to tiny misalignment. Micro-optics promise to overcome these limitations by leveraging standard high-volume microfabrication technologies to realize chip-scale, rugged and low-cost counterparts of conventional optics while delivering comparable or even superior performance. In this talk, I will discuss several new micro-optics innovations we have pioneered in recent years with direct applications to optical spectroscopy, chemical analysis, biomedical imaging, 3-D depth sensing, and AR/VR.
Asia has experienced a dramatic urbanization process over the past few decades. The rapid urbanization trend has reshaped Asian economies as cities generate agglomeration economies; enabling workers and firms to interact in close physical proximity; allowing specialization and nurturing entrepreneurship. Urbanized Asia has become a global powerhouse, generating more than one third of the world’s total GDP. One significant urbanization trend across Asia is the widespread prevalence of “new planned cities, where public and private sector collaborate to generate growth engine for the economy. What’ s the success factors driving new cities economic vibrancy? What’s the role of digital urban system in enhancing urban vibrancy? What’s the mechanism of public and private partnership in new city making? What’s the important yet understudied relationship between market mechanism and non-market forces such as public policy and regulations?
Quantum computing is transitioning from laboratory curiosity to technical reality. Today, small-scale quantum computers with 53 qubits have been demonstrated, but what can they do? What kinds of business opportunities exist and what are the challenges ahead? How and when should my company get engaged?
MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) and the Center for Quantum Engineering (CQE) are pleased to present a special webinar and panel discussion with business leaders and researchers in quantum computing hardware and software sharing their insights on the current lay of the land, opportunities, and challenges of quantum computing.
Please join us to hear and discuss with the experts the latest in quantum computing technology.
The world is facing unprecedented challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic, further complicating complex global innovation trends and demanding unparalleled response from governments and organizations alike. As China and other affected Asian nations have been fighting the pandemic, forward-looking collaborations in technology development and innovation are more important than ever. This key element of collaboration in addressing global innovation is a hallmark of MIT’s problem-solving approach, especially amidst our current global challenges.
In the coming months, the MIT Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) is pleased to present a special webinar series featuring leading researchers and field experts to share insights in energy, nanomaterials, novel photonics, robotics, city planning, healthcare, and more.
We invite you to join the 2020 MIT ILP Regional Webinar Series to engage and explore topics with our experts, including opportunities to interact with academics and global ILP member executives, to drive national and international economic growth through innovation and entrepreneurship in each covered field.
