Advances in materials science and engineering are key components of the innovation process. In this four-part series we highlight areas of materials research driving breakthroughs in technology.
State-of-the-art information and communication technologies have become absolutely essential for all industries as the world is becoming more and more interconnected and data-driven. This trend has been further accelerated by the COVID pandemic. Where is the digital frontier today and what lies ahead? The annual MIT Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) event explores the latest research from across the Institute and its potential impact across industries. The webinar series will feature four sessions by eight MIT faculty on the following topics: urban infrastructure, wireless communications, low power/edge computing and human-machine interactions. Additionally, a fifth session will feature MIT-connected startups presenting on the same topics.
This fall, MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) and Energy Initiative (MITEI) will continue the energy innovation webinar series focused on the energy transition. The series will further engage leading researchers from across MIT and industry executives on topics including power markets, low-carbon fuels, decarbonization of buildings and industry, and other sectors. Industrial collaboration has long been a hallmark of MIT’s approach to problem solving. Please join us to hear what we are doing together with our industrial partners to address the climate change challenges.
The retail industry has been in the process of rapid change caused by advances and adoption of digital technology. With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact of practices like social distancing, the changing face of retail is poised to accelerate even more dramatically in the next few years. These changes will cover the entire spectrum of retail activities ranging from omni-channel consumer experience to agile supply chains. Join us, as MIT’s leading experts in retail explore the critical issues and possible new scenarios of The New Retail.
Join the MIT Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) this fall for our second digital transformation webinar series. In this series, we will continue to explore key digital transformation topics of corporate interest, including digital strategies, operational agility, customer experience, and new technologies.
The digital future is here, and the threat of disruption looms large. The COVID-19 crisis has contributed to this disruption and notably accelerated the transition to a digital future. In our current rapidly expanding digital marketplace, what does digital transformation mean for your company and your business model? How can you stay on top, and even ahead, of these rapid changes? What challenges will your company face, and how can you prepare to successfully tackle what’s ahead? Please join MIT ILP alongside MIT faculty [and startups] to discuss and address these key issues in facing our digital future.
