A New Age of Enlightenment at the Intersection of Technology, the Arts, and Design
RIT President David Munson will discuss how harnessing creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship at the intersection of technology, the arts, and design can lead to a new age of enlightenment.
RIT researchers are at the forefront of the study and application of advanced technologies related to light and sound that are changing the way people learn, work, play, interact, and communicate. The increasing convergence of disciplines —such as imaging science, interactive gaming, virtual and augmented reality, and film and animation — uniquely positions RIT to become a global leader in accelerating the advancement of these technologies while preparing a new generation of entrepreneurs to bring them to commercialization. This can be accomplished through collaboration with the University of Rochester, industry, and other community partners in the Rochester region.
Dr. Munson’s teaching and research interests are in the area of signal and image processing.
