 PA3 INVITES YOU TO “SECOND TUESDAYS”

A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT  

AT QUADRANGLE CLUB

FOR ENTREPRENEURS,

NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ

6 P, TUESDAY, September 10th, 2019

Speaker:  Andrew Houck

Professor, Electrical Engineering

“Decoding the Realm(s) of Quantum Computing:
Tilting at Tackling the Computationally Infeasible”

Quantum Computing is poised to revolutionize myriad fields: cryptography, chemistry, medicine, optimization and machine learning. In contrast to familiar transistors, with a state 0 or 1, the quantum analog of a transistor or bit of information, aka a qubit, can be in a “superposition” of 0 and 1 simultaneously (e.g., 0 + 1, 0 - 1); and multiple qubits can be entangled, i.e., their states depend on each other. These two principles, superposition and entanglement, could enable powerful new algorithms to solve problems far beyond the capacity of today’s digital computing. Like the aviation term, “holding patterns,” maneuvers designed to delay something already in flight, while keeping it within a specified distance --- Quantum Computing may in the next decade bring such exciting new achievements as: factoring large numbers; allowing for RSA decryption; calculating binding energies of complex molecules; and solving large-scale brute-force problems. Andrew Houck, BSE Princeton 2000, PhD Harvard 2005, will introduce us to this strange new world and describe how it’s likely to transform ours.

 PA3 INVITES YOU TO “SECOND TUESDAYS”

A PRINCETON PROPELLER EVENT  

AT QUADRANGLE CLUB

FOR ENTREPRENEURS,

NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ

6 P, TUESDAY, June 11th, 2019

Speakers:  Clay Patterson

NE Regional Manager, iD Tech

 

Paul A Durst & Sharon L De La Cruz

Council on Science & Technology, Princeton University

“Challenges in Next-Generation STEM Education:

Connecting the K-12 Experience to College Curricula”

Since 1999, world-renowned iD Tech camps have delivered STEM education (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to the K-12 set; and from 2010, Princeton University’s Council on Science & Technology has fostered intellectual exchange, interdisciplinary research and collaborations between STEM fields and the arts, humanities and social sciences.  However, while some youngsters take a STEM path early in life, others come to it only in later years.  Providing smoother transitions to college for the former; creating more welcoming entry platforms for the latter; and enhancing STEM’s role in making us all more informed citizens --- are core critical issues our speakers will discuss.

May Propeller (Second Tuesday) ( Tuesday, May 14, 2019 - 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM )

Speaker: Andrew Ippoliti, Technical Lead, BotFactory

“Re-Shaping the Electronic Board Manufacturing Industry:
Making It Better, Faster, Smarter”


While electronics surround us, and innovations occur daily, the actual process of manufacturing electronic devices has changed little in recent decades. So, now may be the time to ask: has the process plateaued? Might electronics be made with more speed, reliability and ease? And --- is it really necessary to rely on so-called experts to manufacture them? The answers may surprise you! BotFactory, an NYC startup, develops desktop machines which not only democratize the creation of electronic boards, but do so with a technology that enables board fabrication by non-experts. Their lead developer, Andrew Ippoliti, will describe just how BotFactory does it. Following a broad historical review of electronic circuit board manufacturing, Andrew’s talk will take us into the rapidly evolving realm of future electronic board fabrication.
