Color Technology Options in NextGen Smart Phones & Devices: 

A Case for MicroLED Displays”

 

Most of us spend hours each day, gazing at our gadgets – phones, pads & tablets, readers, computers, watches, VR headsets and AR glasses --- but when did you last consider actual aspects of the displays themselves, such as power consumption; image contrast, color quality and degradation issues that shorten device product life?  While OLED (organic light emitting diode)-based displays currently reign in these markets, inorganic microLED technology is poised to offer a smaller, flatter, less power-hungry alternative, once cost and manufacturing challenges are overcome. George Powch will describe this emerging technology and why it could change HOW we look at everything.

Buck Gee speaks on "The Failure of Asian Success"

 

A4P and PA3 invite you 

to hear Buck Gee discuss

The Failure of Asian Success

Despite the fact that Asian Americans are the highest educated demographic, a new analysis of national EEOC data reveals that Asian American men and women reach management levels at rates lower than black, Hispanic, and white men or women.  Surprisingly, the analysis finds that racial factors appear to be more significant than gender in the “glass ceiling” for minority women.   More importantly, the analysis also shows that efforts to improve racial and gender representation in upper management has had little effect for all racial minorities.  These facts lead into a discussion as to why Asian American men and women are the least successful minority in moving from positions of knowledge to positions of power. This talk is based on Mr. Gee’s 2018 article in the Harvard Business Review.

 

Monday, January 7, 2019 - 4:30pm

Princeton University - Frist 210

Esther Choi is a PhD candidate in the History and Theory of Architecture and the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities at Princeton University. She received a Master of Arts in the History and Theory of Architecture from Princeton in 2014, and a Master in Design Studies from Harvard GSD in 2008. Her research interests center on the entanglements between architecture and the life sciences in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the intersections between artistic and architectural movements throughout the twentieth century. Her talk will focus on her dissertation, “The Organization of Life: Architecture, Art and the Life Sciences in Great Britain, 1929-1950,” which explores the exchanges that took place between scientists, architects, artists, and designers to reimagine Great Britain as a scientifically-ordered world after the economic crash of 1929. Spanning twenty years, four case studies organized according to evolutionary themes—natural selection, adaptation, heredity and mutation—revisit schemes that championed the belief that the human mind and behavior are thoroughly shaped by the environment.

 

Please join us.  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!

 


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea.
