SENSE.nano SYMPOSIUM on September 30, 2019

This full-day symposium highlighted the needs for new SENSE technologies, showcase research and innovations, and present the impact of these technologies. One symposium stream focused on sensing for AR / VR. The second symposium stream focused on sensing for advanced manufacturing. SENSE includes sensors, new instrumentation, remote sensing, and other measurements technologies. Technical, business, and visionary leaders from MIT, industry, and society shared their experiences and insight via a series of invited technical talks, presentations by MIT-launched startups, posters, and a panel discussion.

May 25, 2017: the Launch of SENSE.nano

On May 25, 2017, MIT announced the launch of SENSE.nano—MIT.nano's first Center of Excellence. SENSE.nano convenes technical, business, and visionary leaders from MIT, industry, and society.  A full-day symposium brought together the Ubiquitous Sensing experts and visionaries: those who are developing capabilities and solving technical challenges, who articulate commercial and humanitarian needs, and who envision the societal impact of ubiquitous sensing. From the opening keynote address, through sessions of invited technical talks, and to the closing panel discussion, we showcased current research and innovations enabling new generations of sensors while highlighting potential impacts of and needs for realizing ubiquitous sensing for man-and-machine and for the environment-and-ecosystem.
