Discruptive technologies have the potential to materially change our world. From real-time personalized efficacy tracking in drug discovery to personalized healthcare delivery to AI/ML enabling faster and more accurate treatment diagnosis, the potential for saving human lives is enormous. Smart cities, enabled by smart homes and buildings can create a safer and more efficient living environment for the world’s populations while preserving our valuable natural resources. The Internet of autonomous things has the potential to materially save lives and lower costs as machines perform accident-prone tasks more efficiently and safely without humans on board. Recent breakthroughs in Large Language Model Artificial Intelligence are changing how we think about productivity and automation. With the decentralized Internet, people, machines, and businesses will be able to trade value, information, and work with global counterparts they don’t know or explicitly trust, without an intermediary – massively altering global commerce. It is now clear to us that some of the greatest human advancements are within our grasp.
The N+1 Institute strives to discover the full potential of disruptive technologies through focused, collaborative approaches to applied learning, commercialized research, and entrepreneurship. Bringing together students, researchers, and industry partners, we envision the institute can fuel innovation and thought leadership worldwide. By cultivating a new business-minded tech talent workforce and closing the gap between research and industry, we can bring about a more connected, safer, and efficient society for us all.
