What are the biggest technological challenges facing today’s computer scientists? What new research is on the horizon, how will it change the way that we use computers, and what will the digital landscape look like in 10 years?
If any one group could address these questions it would be the scientists at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Since its founding 50 years ago, the lab has been at the center of the technology revolution. Lab members brought the world everything from public key encryption to the spreadsheet to the World Wide Web, and continue to tackle the toughest challenges in fields like wireless communications and big data.
A panel of CSAIL’s leading thinkers, including Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee, economist Andrew Lo, roboticist Russ Tedrake, and CSAIL Director Daniela Rus, will discuss their current research, how it will play out down the road, and what it means for today’s innovators and entrepreneurs.
