TEDxZurich - Christofer Hierold - Are nanosensors the future's guardian angels?

As a research engineer you're always at the avant-garde of technological development. And depending on your imagination, estimates and success you'll drive scientific progress. As we're about to apply for the biggest EU-project yet, we're dreaming ten, fifteen years ahead: What will it be like when nanosensors are multifunctional? Will energy harvesting work? Will computing run on ultra-low energy? And what does it all mean for us? Christofer Hierold, Professor of Micro- and Nanosystems, ETH Z?rich Prior to his academic engagement, Christofer Hierold worked for Siemens AG, Corporate Research, and Infineon Technologies AG in Germany. At ETH Zurich his research is focused on the evaluation of new materials for Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), on advanced microsystems, and on nanotransducers. He is co-chairing the FET Flagship Pilot ?Guardian Angels for a Smarter Life". Web: ga-project.eu In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
