A few weeks ago, at MIT Technology Review’s annual EmTech conference, 24 of our 35 innovators under 35 award winners presented on stage, in three minutes or less, their big ideas for advancing technology across a spectrum of disciplines. If you missed the event, now you can catch all of these presentations on video.
Other highlights from the series:
Saikat Guha, 30, explains how he found a way to protect privacy while delivering customized ads to mobile phones. This presentation may win him an Oscar for best use of a bagel in a metaphor.
Leila Takayama, 31, a research scientist at Willow Garage, talks about what it’s like to live and work with robots every day. Maybe you will be as surprised as I to learn that it’s not all Rosie, like on The Jetsons.
Chris Soghoian, 30, principal technologist at the ACLU, talks about why he’s keeping tabs on the Feds who are surveilling private citizens.
Know someone under 35 who should be on the 2013 list of the world’s most promising young innovators? Nominations are now open.
