Keynote Speakers

Towards Self-Driving Cars
Sebastian Thrun, Google

Abstract: Imagine if your car could drive itself. Get in, push a button, and everything else is done by your car. This presentation will introduce you to the fascinating world of self-driving cars. Google has developed a fleet of modified Priuses that can drive themselves on public roads in California. In the past months, Google's cars have driven over 150,000 miles, in places like downtown San Francisco, LA, and near Lake Tahoe. While this technology is still in the research stage, it may one day transform society, leading to better and safer modes of transportation.

Bio: Sebastian Thrun is a Google Fellow, a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the German Academy of Sciences, and a Stanford Professor of Computer Science. Fast Magazine selected him as the fifth most creative person in business, the UK Telegraph included him in their list of 100 living geniuses, and Popular Science included him in their 2005 list of Brilliant Ten. His self-driving car was named one of the 50 best inventions of 2010 by Time Magazine, and it was awarded a Crunchy by TechCrunch in 2011. Thrun led the team that won the DARPA Grand Challenge, against more than 190 competitors.

What if your contact lens could show you images?
Babak A. Parviz, University of Washington

Abstract: Contact lenses provide a unique interface with the human body. Millions of people wear contact lenses in the United States everyday and for most of them, wearing these polymer objects is comfortable enough that throughout the day, they forget this piece is on their eye surface. The research group at the University of Washington has been working on integrating micron-scale and nano-scale devices on contact lenses in the past few years. The two main application areas are integrating a wireless display on a contact lens to enable the user to see computer generated graphics and using contact lenses with embedded biosensors for continuous monitoring of human health. This talk provides a brief overview of the progress made to this date towards designing and building such contact lenses.

Bio: Babak Parviz is the Gerald McMorrow Associate professor of innovation at the University of Washington. He received his undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering and literature and his graduate degrees in physics and electrical engineering. He was a device designer and product manager in a photonics start-up and completed his postdoctoral fellowship in chemistry and chemical biology before joining the University of Washington in 2003. He is the recipient of a number of awards including MIT TR35 and NSF CAREER award. His work has been put on display at the London Museum of Science and has been reported on widely globally. His main areas of research are microtechnology, nanotechnology, and bionanotechnology.
