This is an exciting day at MIT Technology Review. With our annual Innovators Under 35 list, MIT Technology Review endeavors to highlight today’s most creative and bold young technologists, celebrating the rising stars who have dedicated their careers to purpose-driven innovation. Selecting the winners takes many months and is a highlight of the year for our editorial team.
Each year we are honored to host the majority of honorees as featured speakers at EmTech MIT. This year, our Innovators Under 35 speakers will help us explore innovation in areas ranging from energy to neuroengineering. We can’t wait to hear from them at the show, coming up October 9–11, 2013, in Cambridge, MA.
A preview of the confirmed speakers from this year’s list of honorees includes:
- Leslie Dewan, cofounder and CEO of Transatomic Power, on a nuclear reactor design that promises to convert high-level nuclear waste into carbon-free electric power
- John Dabiri, biophysicist and professor of aeronautics and bioengineering at the California Institute of Technology, on building wind farms modeled on schools of fish
- Steve Ramirez, graduate student at MIT, on the potential of his work to change or restore our memories
- Eric Migicovsky, founder of Pebble, on his experience with one of the year’s most watched product launches
- Ben Milne, CEO of Dwolla, on his disruptive approach to processing digital payments
- Dmitri Alperovitch, cofounder and CTO of Crowdstrike, on the new defense strategies we’ll need in an era of cyber-espionage
