MIT Enterprise Forum Event Description

MIT Enterprise Forum of CambridgeWhich of today's emerging technologies have a chance of solving a big problem and opening up new opportunities?

Join us as Jason Pontin, Editor of MIT Technology Review Magazine, walks us through their picks for the '10 Breakthrough Technologies of 2016' and why everyone should be paying attention to them now.

The Technologies We’ll Cover:

  • Immune Engineering - Genetically engineered immune cells are saving the lives of cancer patients. That may be just the start.
  • Precise Gene Editing in Plants - CRISPR offers an easy, exact way to alter genes to create traits such as disease resistance and drought tolerance.  
  • Conversational Interfaces - Powerful speech technology from China’s leading Internet company makes it much easier to use a smartphone.
  • Reusable Rockets - Rockets typically are destroyed on their maiden voyage. But now they can make an upright landing and be refueled for another trip, setting the stage for a new era in spaceflight.
  • Robots That Teach Each Other - What if robots could figure out more things on their own and share that knowledge among themselves? 
  • DNA App Store - An online store for information about your genes will make it cheap and easy to learn more about your health risks and predispositions.
  • SolarCity’s Gigafactory - A $750 million solar facility in Buffalo will produce a gigawatt of high-efficiency solar panels per year and make the technology far more attractive to homeowners.
  • Slack - A service built for the era of mobile phones and short text messages is changing the workplace.
  • Tesla Autopilot - The electric-vehicle maker sent its cars a software update that suddenly made autonomous driving a reality.
  • Power from the Air - Internet devices powered by Wi-Fi and other telecommunications signals will make small computers and sensors more pervasive.
