CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MIT’s Technology Review today announced the 2010 TR35, its annual list of 35 outstanding men and women under the age of 35 who exemplify the spirit of innovation in business and technology. This year’s winners have created innovations over a wide variety of fields, including energy, biomedicine, communications, IT, transportation, and the Web. Their groundbreaking work is liberating patients from sleep clinics, shaping the rules for social networks, bringing down the price of OLED displays, and helping populations cope with crisis. In short, the 2010 TR35 are transforming technology and tackling problems in a way that is likely to benefit society and business.
Technology Review also named Ushahidi’s David Kobia the 2010 Humanitarian of the Year. Kobia’s Web programming helps communities around the world facing catastrophe, and shows us how new crowdsourcing techniques can bring aid to people in their times of greatest need. The complete 2010 TR35 list includes individuals from such well-known organizations and institutions as Alcatel-Lucent, Columbia University, Google, Harvard University, Microsoft Research, MIT, Princeton University, and the Whitehead Institute.
“Discovering the amazing young men and women who make up the TR35 is one of the highlights of the year for us,” said Jason Pontin, editor in chief and publisher of Technology Review. “They inspire and expand our sense of what is possible. We honor them for their current work and look forward to their future accomplishments.”
The 2010 TR35 were selected from more than 300 submissions by the editors of Technology Review in collaboration with a prestigious panel of judges from leading organizations such as Carnegie Mellon University, Hewlett-Packard, MIT, Stanford University, the University of California, Berkeley, and Yahoo Labs. TR35 winners will be profiled in the September/October issue of Technology Review and online at www.technologyreview.com/tr35/. In addition, the EmTech@MIT 2010 Conference, to be held September 21–23 at MIT, will honor the winners in a series of “Meet the TR35” presentations and a dedicated awards ceremony and reception.
