Frontiers in Technology
Innovation is at the heart of the University of California. In university labs and in companies, UC researchers and alumni work in R&D to improve our collective future. From healthcare to the environment, from clean energy to big data, we live in an era of unprecedented technological challenges and opportunities. Now more than ever, creativity and analytic thinking are in great demand. Sponsored by CITRIS and supported by EECS, the “Frontiers in Technology” seminar series brings to UC Merced visionary innovators from leading industries that are working to create the next big technological breakthrough. It offers a unique chance to learn from key players the qualities, the stimuli, and the resources needed to make a difference in today’s rapidly evolving technological and societal horizon.
