Rutledge Ellis-Behnke, Ph.D., is a principal investigator in the Brain
and Cognitive Sciences Department at MIT. He will discuss the use of
nanotechnology to repair the brain and the creation of a nano
hemostatic agent that stops bleeding – two
breakthroughs in the field of healthcare.
Tomaso A. Poggio, Ph.D., is co-director for MIT’s
Center for Biological and Computational Learning, a member of the
Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and a faculty
member of the McGovern Institute for Brain Research. He will focus on
neuroscience and the translation of human visual recognition and
speech synthesis processes to intelligent machines.
Mark Weber, Ph.D., leads the Weather Sensing Group at MIT’s
Lincoln Laboratory, which has supported the Federal Aviation
Administration and NASA in the development of advanced technologies
for the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS). Weber will speak on the
Laboratory’s efforts to reduce the impact of
weather on the flow of commercial air traffic as well as new
technologies and tools to aid in this process.
