Calit2 as a Model for Collaborative Innovation

  1. 1. “Calit2 as a Model for Collaborative Innovation” Invited Talk San Diego Rotary Club San Diego, CA April 18, 2019 Dr. Larry Smarr Director, California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology Harry E. Gruber Professor, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering Jacobs School of Engineering, UCSD 1
  2. 2. Abstract I have spent the last 30 years building cross-disciplinary teams using cutting-edge technology to solve real-world problems. The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, a UC San Diego/UC Irvine, is one of four Gray Davis Institutes for Science and Innovation in the UC system. I will share examples from our projects in digitally-enabled disruptions of Health, Energy, Environment, and Culture, driven by innovations in wireless and photonic telecommunications, nanotechnology, biotechnology, and virtual reality.
