About the 2014 Yale Technology Summit

The first Yale Technology Summit took place on Friday, October 31, 2014, at the Yale School of Management. Hundreds of attendees enjoyed talks on a broad range of topics, such as distance learning technologies, data analysis, cloud solutions, and 3-D scanning in medical research.

Yale College alumni Justin Kan '05 and Emmett Shear '05, co-founders of the video-game website Twitch, were the keynote speakers at the event, which featured presentations by 75 faculty, students, and staff members from across campus who are working with emerging and innovative technologies.
