HUJI Talks Fascinate Participants of 2019 Board of Governors
Ted-Style Talks by Keynote Hebrew University Speakers on “High-Tech Jerusalem”
This year’s Board of Governors highlighted High-Tech Jerusalem. While outdoor ceremonies, musical events and a fun-filled culinary evening in Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda emphasized the centrality of Jerusalem in the University’s identity, our HUJI Talks showcased the increasing importance of High-Tech in every facet of our research as well as in our daily lives.
Some of the University’s best minds presented groundbreaking research on the cutting edge of science, technology and innovation. Though the topics were wide-ranging, they all demonstrated the symbiotic connection between high-tech and 21st century research.
This year’s distinguished speakers were Prof. Yuval Shany, Faculty of Law; Prof. Eugene Kandel, Jerusalem Business School; Prof. Hagai Eisenberg, Racah Institute of Physics; Dr. Moran Yassour, Faculty of Medicine and Rachel & Selim Benin School of Computer Science and Engineering; Dr. Renana Keydar, Martin Buber Society of Fellows and Faculties of Humanities and of Law; Dr. Amit Zoran, Rachel & Selim Benin School of Computer Science and Engineering; Dr. Yossi Buganim, Faculty of Medicine; Prof. Tommy Kaplan, Rachel & Selim Benin School of Computer Science and Engineering; and Dr. Oren Ram, Faculty of Science.
Topics included the laws of war in cyberspace, what a baby’s diaper can teach us about pediatric health, creating an embryo from skin cells, and a quantum leap to the future.
