Gordon Wetzstein

Assistant Professor, Electrical Engineering Department Assistant Professor (by courtesy), Computer Science Department Stanford University

Gordon Wetzstein is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Computer Science at Stanford University. He is the leader of the Stanford Computational Imaging Group, an interdisciplinary research group focused on advancing imaging, microscopy, and display systems. At the intersection of computer graphics, machine vision, optics, scientific computing, and perception, Prof. Wetzstein's research has a wide range of applications in next-generation consumer electronics, scientific imaging, human-computer interaction, remote sensing, and many other areas.

Prior to joining Stanford in 2014, Prof. Wetzstein was a Research Scientist in the Camera Culture Group at the MIT Media Lab. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia in 2011 and graduated with Honors from the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany before that. His doctoral dissertation focuses on computational light modulation for image acquisition and display and won the Alain Fournier Ph.D. Dissertation Annual Award. He organized the IEEE 2012 and 2013 International Workshops on Computational Cameras and Displays, founded displayblocks.org as a forum for sharing computational display design instructions with the DIY community, and presented a number of courses on Computational Displays and Computational Photography at ACM SIGGRAPH.

Gordon is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award, he won best paper awards at the International Conference on Computational Photography (ICCP) in 2011 and 2014 as well as a Laval Virtual Award in 2005.

Mounir Zok

Director of Technology
and Innovation,
US Olympic Committee

Dr.Mounir Zok is the Director of Technology and Innovation for the U.S. Olympic Committee and plays an instrumental and strategic role in bringing emerging technologies to Team USA. He is responsible for championing, setting up and running high-performance technology programs that increase the medalling chances of Team USA athletes at the future Olympic and Paralympic Games; such programs usually lie at the sweet intersection of various emerging technologies, among which: wearable technology, smart textiles and fabric, Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence and cognitive computing. In this role, he leads and manages a group of internal and external individuals (technologists, engineers, data scientists, hardware/software developers, designers, business partners) as well as work very closely with the US Olympic Committee's leadership to ensure alignment with organization policies and strategies. Given the innovative topics that he deals with on a daily basis, Zok is a very strong advocate of Design Thinking and Lean Startup methodologies.

Prior to joining the USOC, Zok helped grow a couple of emerging technology startups in Italy into internationally renowned firms. Besides being a co-founder, he led the Product and Business Development teams and spearheaded the development of various applications that are currently being used at a number of organizations in Italy and around Europe.

Zok holds a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, speaks at major national and international conferences and meetings on Technology and Innovation, and is fluent in 4 languages. He currently lives with his wife and 2 children in the Silicon Valley, USA.

David Eagleman

Neuroscientist & author,
Stanford University
and NeoSensory

David Eagleman is a neuroscientist, New York Times bestselling author and Guggenheim Fellow. He is the writer and presenter of The Brain, an international television series that asks what it means to be human from a neuroscientist's point of view. He holds an adjunct appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford, where his research encompasses sensory substitution, time perception, vision, synesthesia, and the intersection of neuroscience with the legal system. Eagleman appears regularly on National Public Radio and BBC to discuss new developments in the neurosciences.
