3 Speakers:  F J Mallen, M J Berry II & John Frederick

 

Ophthalmologist, Princeton Neuroscience Professor & Patient

 

   “Assessing a New Treatment for Age-Related Macular Degeneration”

 

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in the developed world, results from a still-incurable disease process that causes dysfunction in the retina.  Although only a small area is typically affected, there is great impact on vision:  patients experience a blind spot wherever they look, leading to an inability to read, drive, recognize faces and discern objects as the disease progresses.  A promising new treatment uses gentle laser light to reshape the cornea, bending light rays away from diseased areas of the retina and onto healthy areas.  This redirection of light causes an immediate improvement in vision, and generates ongoing improvement due to neuroadaptation.  Dr. Mallen, an ophthalmologist, will discuss the disease from a clinical perspective; Prof. Berry, a neuroscientist, will explain the basic vision science underlying the treatment; and the Rev. John Frederick, who’s had the procedure in both eyes, will provide a patient’s perspective.

Speaker:  José Avalos, Universidad Iberoamericana ’96

Assistant Professor, Chemical & Biological Engineering
The Andlinger Center, Princeton University

 

   “Engineering Microbes to Sustain Planet Earth”

Advances in synthetic biology, such as the development of engineered metabolisms, biosensors and genetic circuits, have revolutionized mankind’s ability to monitor and control cellular functions in the manufacture of chemicals and materials.  With these new tools, previously unsolvable problems in energy, the environment, industry and sustainability, can now be addressed. Following years of study at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Rockefeller, MIT and the Whitehead Institute, José Avalos is well-positioned to take us into the world of microbial engineering.  He will explain how it is transforming production of:  the chemicals we use; the fuels we burn; the clothes we wear; the food we eat; and the materials we employ.

Speaker:  Jacob Loewenstein ’11, S’12

 

AV/VR Business Development & Product Strategy, Samsung Next

 

“The Phone is Only the Beginning:  What Will It Take

To Make AR Worth Wearing a Computer on Your Face?”

 

Samsung Next, the software and services innovation arm of Samsung, develops products, invests in startups and acquires businesses ready for scale in the frontier technology areas of VR, AR and MR (Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality). After studying the intersection of media theory and public policy at Princeton, Jacob earned an MBA at MIT Sloan, where he co-founded VR/AR @ MIT. His talk will survey the advancements in these fields that have generated excitement and anticipation in the marketplace, but have yet to become an ever-present part of our lives.  He will also appraise the further technological progress that will be required for AR to become so seamless and so realistic that it will be worth wearing computers on our faces.

6 P, TUESDAY, September 11th, 2018

Speaker:  Rich Hollingsworth ’71

Director of Operations, High Asset Tagging, Tego, Inc.

 

“Radio-Frequency ID in Aerospace, Life Sciences & Beyond:
Collecting, Storing, Managing and Using Intelligent Asset Data”

Managing high value assets, by simple Internet of Things (IoT) connection to “Big Data,” leads to inefficiencies in handling large volumes of disparate data over long periods (e.g., decades).  Asset identification by reading barcode or RFID EPC and sending to “Big Data” to retrieve asset data is likewise limiting, where Internet protocols don’t make sense due to cost, latency, or environmental conditions.  But “intelligent assets” use RFID tags with asset data permanently stored on the asset and read by a simple RFID reader --- eliminating the need for “Big Data.”  After describing how Tego delivers its high memory RFID technology core “intelligent assets” in the aerospace and life science industries, Rich Hollingsworth will delineate the semiconductor and software development challenges yet to be met, before “intelligent assets” can be extended to many other industries.
