Tech Day 2009: See Into the Mind’s Eye
Join fellow alumni June 6 at this year’s Technology Day to learn about faculty research on visual cognition, the perception of self and other, and emerging trends in artificial intelligence.
This intellectual cornerstone of the reunion weekend, June 4-7, is open to all alumni, as are events such as Tech Night at the Pops–but you’ll need to register. Sophomore Jennifer Lai, an award-winning pianist, will perform at Tech Night at the Pops, the first student to solo in many years.
Is this your year? Alumni who graduated in years ending in 9 or 4 can register online for a full agenda of class events, and all alumni can sign up for traditional events through May 13: alum.mit.edu/reunions.
