Engineers Respond To COVID-19: Engineering Reopening and Renaissance


Join us for this fourth in a weekly series of 30 minute talks.

Darwin said the strongest of the species will survive. It is not accurate. It is resiliency and adaptivity that survive. This holds true in business as well. In order to reopen businesses, we ought to reinvent workspaces and interactions, including social distancing path planning, electronic payment, remote control, automation, mixed-reality technologies, virtual classrooms, telepresence, and telemedicine. This economic crisis brings renaissance to the region as well as causes many small businesses to become resilient, adaptive, and greener.
