FIELD TRIP
SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute)

We will be visiting SRI International (formerly Stanford Research Institute), the non-profit research institute at the forefront of many of Silicon Valley’s most remarkable innovations. For 70 years, SRI has shaped the future by creating ground-breaking advances in artificial intelligence, network communications, security, robotics, health, and STEM education. Today, researchers across SRI collaborate with clients and partners to develop solutions to the world’s most pressing problems ranging from cybersecurity, such as recent disruptions of the Internet of Things (IoT), to meeting the challenges of an aging population. At the heart of SRI’s work is a commitment to creating and applying technology to make people healthier, safer and more productive, and a belief that by working together we can invent a better future for the generations to come.

Lab visits will span a range of disciplines: Robotics (MOTOBOT Yamaha-motorcycle-riding humanoid, PROXI walking humanoid, and robotic surgery); a soft-exoskeleton wearable for aging populations; advanced space radar applications; IoT security solutions; and rapid triage of radiation exposure.
