Full Summary: Woodruff Distinguished Lecture presents Albert P. Pisano, Professor and Dean, Jacobs School of Engineering, UC San Diego

In this talk, information will be given about the efforts made by UC San Diego for the research, incubation and education in the new area of Trillion Sensors. Dr. Pisano will discuss the global concept of “abundance” and how exponential growth in appropriate industries actually can be used to eliminate the gap between global supply and global demand of essential services and needs. One of these “exponential growth” industries is sensors, and there is an estimate that 45 trillion sensors will be built and networked in the next 20 years. Examples of candidates for “Trillion Sensors” will be described, including environmental monitoring, mobile health, precision drug delivery and implantable nanotechnology for the human body. For the concluding part of the talk, a novel nanoprinting technology will be described (advective or “dry” nanoprinting). This new kind of nanoprinting holds promise to deliver the high volumes of sensors needed for the Trillion Sensor universe.
