Eighth annual flagship event of the Japan - U.S. Innovation Awards Program

Arrillaga Alumni Center, McCaw Hall, 326 Galvez Street
Various Speakers
Abstract / Description: 

The Keynote speaker at this year's Japan – U.S. Innovation Awards Symposium is artificial intelligence and robotics sensation Dr. Yoky Matsuoka, CTO of Nest.

Dr. Matsuoka grew up in Japan assuming she would become a professional tennis player, but instead earned a BS degree from UC Berkeley and a PhD from MIT. Subsequently, she became a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, then the University of Washington, developing robotic devices for rehabilitating and assisting the human body and brain. This work led her to receive the MacArthur award.

In late 2009, Dr. Matsuoka joined Google[x] as one of the three founding members before taking her position as vice president of technology at Nest. She was named CEO of a small startup, Quanttus, in 2015, and a year later joined Apple's Health Group before returning to Nest in 2017 as CTO.

Please come to hear from one of Silicon Valley's top technologists and to network with people who share an interest in innovation connections between the Bay Area and Japan!
