Driving the AI era toward lasting economic and social prosperity
We build practical solutions by applying technology to real world challenges and by engaging with external partners. From commercially-viable startups to socially-conscious ventures to something new within a big company, the entities we create make an impact.
Expanding access to technology
We’re dedicated to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community of students, faculty, and staff. We seek to build things with—not just for—real people, and believe in the power of participation and representation.
