Hod Lipson is a professor of Engineering and Data Science at Columbia University in New York, and a co-author of the award winning book “Fabricated: The New World of 3D printing”, and “Driverless: Intelligent cars and the road ahead”, by MIT Press (translated into 7 languages). Before joining Columbia University in 2015, Hod spent 14 years as a professor at Cornell University. He received his PhD in 1999 from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, followed by a postdoc at Brandeis University and MIT.
Hod Lipson’s work on self-aware and self-replicating robots challenges conventional views of robotics, and has enjoyed widespread media coverage. He has also pioneered open-source 3D printing, as well as electronics 3D printing, bio-printing and food printing. Lipson has co-authored over 300 publications that received over 14,000 citations to date. He has co-founded four companies, and is frequent keynoter both in industry and academic events. His TED Talk on self-aware machines is one of the most viewed presentations on AI and robotics. Hod directs the Creative Machines Lab, which pioneers new ways to make machines that create, and machines that are creative.
In the past decade, data has become the fuel that drives software. The large quantity, variety, and rate of data feeds challenge conventional infrastructure and traditional thinking, yet offer many new opportunities. How do exponential organizations think about data? This talk delivers an introduction to the six waves of big data and the increasingly sophisticated ability to extract information and meaning out of raw data. This session will provide many examples of big data in action – embedded in the fabric of our everyday lives. We’ll cover everything from traditional data analytics to current trends in artificial perception and future self-awareness. We’ll explain how innovative corporations and startups are using big data to amplify their capabilities and accelerate product development.
