Dan Connors, assistant professor and associate chair of electrical engineering is one of eleven speakers at TEDxMileHigh, happening this Saturday, June 15, at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. He will present at approximately 1 p.m.
Dan will talk about the social implications of computer vision with exponentially increasing capability that is now exceeding and expanding human capabilities.
The name of this year’s TEDx is “Values & Instincts.” From www.tedxmilehigh.com: “TEDxMileHigh exists to spread big ideas and elevate inspired citizenship in Colorado. It is a community of thinkers and doers, ideators and creators, activists and enthusiasts. TEDxMileHigh showcases innovative Coloradans, no matter the sector, who each give the ‘talk of their life’ around the power of ideas. This diverse group of thought leaders and innovators educate, inspire, and stimulate change with the ultimate goal being deep discussion and action across our communities.” We are honored that Dan will be representing the college and the university at such an inspiring event.
Mechanical engineering students also will be in the Exhibits Lounge with their award-winning hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the H2 Eco-Challenger.
