International Space Station National Laboratory:
Your Laboratory, Your Research and Technology

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable will host a webinar on the opportunities for research partnership with the International Space Station National Laboratory. The International Space Station is arguably one of humankind’s greatest technical achievements—orbiting some 250 miles above our planet, traveling at 17,500 miles per hour, and continuously habiting humans in microgravity for nearly 20 years. Aside from housing astronauts who help to push the boundaries of technology and innovation, the space station has also been home to over 2,500 different science experiments that leverage the facility’s unique microgravity environment. The space station is available to a myriad of government, academic, and commercial researchers all interested in looking at science through a new lens.

Please join GUIRR for a conversation with experts from the International Space Station National Laboratory to discuss the past, present, and future of research and development taking place aboard the space station that could have impacts into the way we live here on Earth. 

Free and open to the public.

Authenticity, Integrity, and Security in a Digital World

Digital technology is incorporated into nearly every facet of American life; it is integral to commerce, community, healthcare, food systems, transportation, education, media, entertainment, and employment. What emerging technologies are complicating the ability to verify authenticity and integrity in a digital world? And what emerging technologies enable the creation of systems of trust that enforce standards of authenticity, integrity, and security? How can partnerships between government, universities, and companies shape public policy to prioritize authenticity and integrity within systems, and who will be the stewards and custodians of such systems?

This workshop will explore these questions and broadly examine the state of research and commercial applications of deep neural networks, distributed ledger technology, and quantum information systems within the context of how these emerging technologies challenge or enable an ability to establish systems of trust in the United States and throughout the global economy.   

For GUIRR members and guests only.
