White House Frontiers Conference
October 13, 2016
The White House Frontiers Conference brings together the Nation’s top innovators to discuss how new frontiers in science and technology will help improve lives and shape the future.
The conference includes voices from five frontiers of innovation—personal, local, national, global, and interplanetary. From developing personalized treatments for diseases like Alzheimer’s or cancer, to harnessing the power of artificial intelligence to improve lives, to sending humans to Mars, the conference will explore innovations that hold the potential to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges and keep America on the cutting edge.
The White House is co-hosting the Frontiers Conference with the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). The event will include topics inspired by the November issue of WIRED, where guest-editor President Obama will explore the theme of “Frontiers” that will shape the coming decades.
