New York City Alumni Gala Dinner

Join the Vice-Chancellor and Nobel Laureate Professor Brian P. Schmidt AC and fellow alumni and friends at the New York City Alumni Gala Dinner.

You're going to do what?!

This entertaining evening will feature ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science Dean, Professor Elanor Huntington, and Director of the ANU 3A Institute and Florence Violet McKenzie Chair, Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell. Both have set out on radical visionary agendas that most people think are nearly impossible to achieve and usually respond to them by saying - "you're going to do what?!"

Professor Elanor Huntington

Professor Elanor Huntington is the first female Dean of Engineering and Computer Science at the Australian National University. She is committed to reimagining Science and Technology for the future. In particular, Professor Huntington hopes to encourage young women to get involved in STEM related fields. Professor Huntington's research interest is in the area of experimental quantum optics, specialising in high-speed measurement, control and generation of non-classical states for quantum technological applications. Non-classical states are used as an input to a variety of quantum technologies and, as such, the ability to make, measure, and manipulate such states with high precision and at high speeds is crucial. Prof Huntington is the author of several research publications and patents in this area.Professor Huntington is also leading a project to reimagine a new type of engineering and computing, one that is custom built and fit for the middle of the 21st century - the Reimagine project

Professor Genevieve Bell

Professor Bell is the Director of the 3A Institute, Florence Violet McKenzie Chair, and a Distinguished Professor at the Australian National University (ANU) as well as a Vice President and Senior Fellow at Intel Corporation. Professor Bell is a cultural anthropologist, technologist and futurist best known for her work at the intersection of cultural practice and technology development. Professor Bell joined the ANU's College of Engineering and Computer Science in February 2017, after having spent the past 18 years in Silicon Valley helping guide Intel's product development by developing the company's social science and design research capabilities. She now heads the newly established Autonomy, Agency and Assurance (3A) Institute, launched in September 2017 by the ANU in collaboration with CSIRO's Data61, in building a new applied science around the management of artificial intelligence, data, technology and their impact on humanity.
