Cornell Tech’s academic environment encourages tight integration across disciplines, couples fundamental research with practice, and supports societal and commercial ventures alongside research and education.

In addition to world-class academic work, a distinguishing characteristic of our research is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct societal and commercial impact of our research.

Upcoming Events

Stefan Savage

11/28/18 11am: Colloquium @ Cornell Tech: Stefan Savage

"Lawful Device Access without Mass Surveillance Risk" Among the more controversial topics at the intersection of public policy and technology concerns government access to the contents of encrypted devices (e.g., cell phones). It is a conflict that inherently pits individual rights (i.e., securing our data against unauthorized access) against collective rights (i.e., the court system’s need to support lawful investigations).
Mirella Lapata

11/30/18 12pm: LMSS @ Cornell Tech: Mirella Lapata

BIO: Mirella Lapata is a professor in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. She is affiliated with the Institute for Communicating and Collaborative Systems and the Edinburgh Natural Language Processing Group. Her research focuses on probabilistic learning techniques for natural language understanding and generation. She is interested in the general problem of extracting semantic information from large volumes of text.
William T. Freeman

2/1/19 12pm: LMSS @ Cornell Tech: William T. Freeman

William T. Freeman is the Thomas and Gerd Perkins Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, and a member of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) there. He was the Associate Department Head from 2011 - 2014.
