2015 Tech Forum – Robotics and Technologies of the Future
Tuesday, February 3, 2015    |   10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Carnesale Commons, UCLA

Welcome to the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science’s annual Tech Forum.  This event brings together members of the faculty, industry, government laboratories, alumni and the general public to showcase the groundbreaking engineering research and technology development taking place at UCLA.

Each year Tech Forum begins with a nationally renowned speaker, followed by a poster session highlighting our students’ research. Lunch provides an opportunity for our visitors to sit down with faculty and students for detailed technical discussions. The afternoon parallel sessions this year will feature talks on robotics, energy and the environment, technology in medicine, big data and cybersecurity. This will be followed by a late afternoon networking event, an awards presentation for the best posters, and an opportunity to meet the directors of the major research centers at UCLA Engineering.

Tech Forum 2015 will feature UCLA Engineering’s rapidly growing robotics program, with a keynote presentation by Dr. Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics. Boston Dynamics is the world leader in robotic locomotion and was recently acquired by Google. Our guests will see technology including: humanoid robots, autonomous vehicles, medical robots for surgery and rehabilitation, and mechatronic fingers with great sensitivity.
