Stanford Engineering Hero Marcian “Ted” Hoff

Topic: 
Technology for Today’s Problems
Abstract / Description: 

Join us on campus for a talk by Stanford Engineering Hero Marcian "Ted" Hoff, who is best known as the architect of the first microprocessor, Intel's 4004, released in 1971.

In his talk, Technology for Today's Problems, Dr. Hoff will look at the enormous progress in semiconductor technology since 1971, discuss its impact and explore some current problems that technology can help address.

Semiconductor technology has made possible so many things we take for granted today— smart phones with cameras, global positioning and anywhere, anytime access to vast stores of information. But the world faces many ongoing problems, most notably the pressures on our environment caused by global population and economic growth. Instead of leaving these problems to future generations, we could use our knowledge to seek solutions and create vital new businesses at the same time. Computers can help, but we must harness or invent other technologies to truly make a difference.

The Stanford Engineering Heroes program recognizes the achievements of Stanford engineers who have profoundly advanced the course of human, social and economic progress through engineering.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project

Topic: 
Fractal Flyer Functionality!
Abstract / Description: 

In 2019 the Stanford Electrical Engineering Department celebrated its 125th anniversary. As part of celebration, we will be designing, engineering and installing an interactive light sculpture in the 3-story glass stairwell of the Packard building, named FLIGHT. FLIGHT consists of 76 Fractal Flyers, bird-like shapes inspired by the geometry of the stairwell that move. The wings of the Fractal Flyers are dichroic acrylic, so that during the day their color shifts and changes with the angle of light. At night, they light up with patterns across their bodies and wings. The sculpture will remain in Packard for 3-5 years, allowing refinement, exploration of new engineering ideas, and new interactions.

Date and Time:
