About Speaker
Neil Gershenfeld
(Professor at MIT and Director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms)

Prof. Neil Gershenfeld is the Director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, where his unique laboratory is breaking down boundaries between the digital and physical worlds by investigating the relationship between the content of information and its physical representation, from pioneering quantum computing to digital fabrication to the Internet of Things.

Centre for Bits & Atoms or CBA’s research has created advances at the boundary between bits and atoms including what were among the first complete quantum computations, using nuclear spins in molecules; physical one-way cryptographic functions, implemented by mesoscopic light scattering; microfluidic bubble logic, with bits that transport materials as well as information; asynchronous logic automata, to align hardware with software; intelligent infrastructure, for energy efficiency; recoding the genome; coded folding, for programming matter; and the additive assembly of functional digital materials.

Prof. Neil Gershenfeld is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society, has been named one of Scientific American’s 50 leaders in science and technology, and as one of 40 Modern-Day Leonardos by the Museum of Science and Industry. He’s been called the intellectual father of the maker movement, founding a growing global network of over one thousand fab labs that provide widespread access to prototype tools for personal fabrication, directing the Fab Academy for distributed research and education in the principles and practices of digital fabrication, and chairing the Fab Foundation.
