“The role of serial entrepreneurs in Cambridge ecosystem.”

Abstract

This lecture will discuss the role of Cambridge serial entrepreneurs in the incubation of new ventures and how they carry out their entrepreneurial processes in the context of human and social capital. Over several years, we have observed a pattern that is different from entrepreneurial processes described in literature.

XR and The Future of Communications: From Silicon to Human Photonics

VR/AR will evolve into XR to become the future interface for Cloud Computing, IoT, Big Data, Prediction, Self-driving Cars, Personalized Medicine, Robots, Drones, Cryptocurrency, Smart Cities, and AI. XR is intelligent and interactive connecting us in new ways to each other and uniting human and machine intelligence in a space shared and understood by both. The convergence of CV and AI is powering this paradigm shift in computing but display technologies still lag behind. New display technologies that operate at the intersection of engineering and perception are essential for the realization of XR. This talk will look at the promise of XR, and the challenge of fitting the puzzle pieces together.
