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. Academic departments, research labs, museums, the Yale Library, the School of Art, the School of Architecture, the School of Nursing, and the School of Management were among the many organizations represented.
The event was coordinated by Yale Information Technology Services and sponsored by HB Communications, IBM, Juniper Networks, and Lenovo/GovConnection.
