The relentless parade of new technologies 

Almost every advance is billed as a breakthrough, and the the list of the “new new thing” grows longer. Not every emerging technology will alter the business or social landscape—but some truly do have the potential to disrupt the status quo, alter the way people live and work, and rearrange an industry’s value chain. We believe it’s critical that technology, business and policy leaders understand which inventions will impact society the most and prepare accordingly.

Come explore and discuss the impact of exponential technologies like: Thermal Imagery, Quantum Supermacy, Learning Technologies and Life Sciences

Using Drone Mounted Thermal Imagery to Improve Reptile Detection
Presenters:: Albert Sarvis, Assistant Professor of Geospatial Technology (bio)
Christine Proctor, Assistant Professor of Biology & Ecology
Harrisburg University faculty have successfully used drone based thermal imagery to remotely detect cold blooded reptiles for population studies.  This new method for identifying reptiles has been shown to dramatically increase the detection rate over traditional methods and has the potential for much wider wildlife biology applications.

Quantum Computing
Presenter: Terrill Frantz, Associate Professor of eBusiness & Cybersecurity (bio)
After simmering for 100+ years, Quantum Supremacy is now on the horizon. A single quantum computer, based on quantum-level physics, will surpass the computational power of all the computers presently on the planet...combined; just imagine that!

Chemical Simulation Game 
Presenter: Melanie Stegman, Assistant Professor & Lead Developer for CAELT
The ChemSimGame is a simulation of molecular dynamics of chemical equilibrium in aqueous solutions that high schoolers and new college students will play like a video game. We are creating a whole new way of drawing molecules so that their unique qualities are visually evident, and we design interesting, self-directed tasks for players to accomplish.   

3D Printed Skin Graft, Disruptive Technologies and Innovation in
Life Sciences

Presenter: Leena Pattarkine, Professor of Biotechnology (bio)
How new technologies wipe out prevailing technologies in healthcare/life sciences.

Registration will start at 2:30 PM at Harrisburg University. Our speakers will take the stage from 3:00-5:00 PM.  
We hope to see you at Disruptive Tech!
