As our capacity to produce and collect data grows, we are quickly reaching the limit of mainstream storage technologies, yet our ability to engineer biomolecules is rapidly improving. Nature may be our best inspiration for future computer systems. Join us to hear from computer scientist Luis Ceze, who along with partners at the UW and Microsoft, has developed a process to encode, store and retrieve data in DNA that broke a world record for the technology.

Speaker: Luis Ceze, Associate Professor, Computer Science & Engineering

Part of the Engineering the Data Revolution: Fake News, Smart Cities and Data in DNA lecture series

Registration available in early September.
