Improving Value and Reducing the Environmental Footprint of Healthcare

Dr. Thiel (NYU Langone Health & NYU Tandon) is one of only a handful of researchers worldwide who is studying the footprint of medical practices. This talk will provide an overview of the emerging field of “clinical sustainability”.
Reflections on Race & Digital Platforms

Today's alumni lunch will consider the answer to this question in a lively conversation with Dr. King-Toler.
5G And Beyond
The Future of Wireless Communications
March 23, 2021
Join Thomas Marzetta, Distinguished Industry Professor and Director of NYU WIRELESS, for a conversation on the future of communications led by PAA board member Daniel O'Sullivan (TANDON ’78) of the MIT Enterprise Forum.
After years of hype about gigabit speeds, 5G finally became a reality in 2019. AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Qualcomm all now have some form of 5G service available in the United States. And you can buy 5G phones that can take advantage of faster speeds on those networks today. But while 3G made internet surfing possible on our smartphones, and 4G allowed us to stream video in real-time, what will this next generation of advanced communication technology give us? And when will the day arrive when we can affordably leverage these services in our everyday quest for increased productivity and content consumption?
