Title: "Optics: The Engine of the Information Age"


We live in a world where the quantity of information that we have access to is expanding rapidly, and this trend will only increase with the advent of new applications ranging from the Internet of Things (IoT) to augmented/virtual reality. We will discuss how integrated photonics will play an increasing role optical communications, primarily for data, how solar energy can address some of the challenges presented by the massive scaling of data centers, and how new infrared transparent polymers will create new opportunities for low-cost sensors that will support the IoT.
