Innovation in engineering & Reinforcing infrastructure for Systems
Innovation in engineering with AI and Machine learning
In October 2021, we explored some of the AI/ML technologies invented at Imperial and how we apply these to solve engineering challenges (such as a new way of wireless video transmission, or control and process optimisation to enable decision making in complex environments with the application for example in technology, energy and biopharmaceutical sectors). Chaired by Professor Michael Huth, a leading computing scientist, entrepreneur and Head of Imperial’s Department of Computing a panel discussion offered a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with the experts from inside Imperial.
Reinforcing infrastructure for Systems, and Social & Communi
In June 2021, we explored a series of presentations and pitches showcasing Imperial’s engineering research and technologies aiming to improve the security and resilience of the infrastructure around us, chaired by Professor Washington Ochieng, Co-Director of the Institute of Security Science and Technology and incoming Head for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Affordable technologies & Transition to Zero Pollution
Affordable technologies for an ageing society
In May 2021, our event saw a series of presentations and pitches showcasing Imperial’s engineering research and technologies in healthcare to improve healthy life expectancy and meet the demands of an ageing population, before the experts convened for a lively and informative panel discussion chaired by Dr Jonathan Jeffers (Mechanical Engineering) - the first engineer ever to receive a National Institute for Health Research Research Professorship.
Transition to Zero Pollution
In November 2020, six experts from different areas of the College presented their academic research and startups that are addressing and tackling the Transition to Zero Pollution, a major initiative across Imperial College London, led by Professor Mary Ryan, Vice Dean (Research) for the Faculty of Engineering.
