IPaT Industry Innovation Day

The Institute for People and Tech (IPaT) will host its first Industry Innovation Day on April 13th in Tech Square. This event builds on the success of the previous IPaT industry oriented event, the People and Technology Forum. It serves to showcase research at IPaT and Georgia Tech as well as highlight the many avenues of collaboration with industry, government, and non-profit partners.

We’ll start with a breakfast session discussing the spectrum of ways industry and government agencies can engage with Georgia Tech.The morning will continue with thought-provoking keynotes and panel discussions on this year’s theme of Smart and Connected Communities. Business leaders, researchers, city officials and entrepreneurs will examine how the next wave of innovative, integrated technologies is going to help communities across Georgia, the US and the world become more connected, resilient and sustainable.

In the afternoon attendees will have the opportunity to take guided tours of Georgia Tech SimTigrate Design Lab, I3L and ATDC, plus view research demonstrations at the GVU Center and Digital Media Research Showcase. At the showcase, touch, control, and imagine what future technology will enable at more than 80 interactive demos. All activities will take place in Atlanta's Tech Square at the eastern edge of the Georgia Tech campus.
