How the Insurance Industry is Rewarding the Back to the Future Generation
Back in the future, a group of young adults from across the globe gathered in the heart of New York City for a weekend event dubbed the “Back to the Futurists” conference.
While many attendees were dressed in the “future” fashion of a future-themed sci-fi movie, many were dressed as scientists, cosmologists, and physicists.
The event, dubbed the International Science and Engineering Festival, was organized by a group known as the Future Science Alliance, a nonprofit organization founded by the US Chamber of Commerce and a private research foundation.
This year, they brought together hundreds of scientists, engineers, and other experts who will work to address one of the biggest challenges facing the planet: climate change.
At the event, the Future Tech Summit, organizers announced that they had received more than 5,000 applications for a $2 million scholarship to be awarded to a student who had completed a three-year fellowship with MIT.
The first applicant will be chosen in September, and they will have until March of 2019 to apply for the scholarship.
The scholarship is open to all students from any school who have completed a PhD in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) in the US or internationally.
The winners will be announced in 2020.
The prize money is expected to be used for an additional two-year grant.
The Science Summit was held on August 10-11 in New York.
In the summer of 2020, the Science Summit hosted a similar event in Toronto, Canada, and there are plans to hold another one in San Francisco in 2021.
The conference, which also included a workshop on “science, technology and society” and an online symposium on “The Future of Health Care,” attracted nearly 150 people.
The organizers of this year’s event told Newsweek that the goal was to provide “a safe space to share our science and technology solutions” and that the event was aimed at bridging the gap between science and policy-making.
The participants were not required to attend the conference, though they did sign up and some of them attended online to give feedback.
“They’re just here to get engaged and have a great time,” one participant, a former student of MIT’s Sloan School of Management, told Newsweek.
“It’s a fun environment to meet other people who share the same passion as me.”
As a part of the conference’s goal to create a “sense of wonder,” many attendees took pictures with the panels and talked about their experiences and shared their ideas.
Many attendees said they thought the panel discussions were an extension of the previous year’s Future Tech summit.
“This year’s theme was science, and I was inspired by a lot of the work we’ve done and how they are getting the world to be better, not worse, by science,” said one attendee, who was not named in the Newsweek article.
“We’re seeing people who have done the hard work, who have created the science and the technology, but have never been able to have their vision come to fruition.”
“This is a great chance to talk about the future,” said another attendee.
“These young people are really smart and they are really motivated to take the science out of the lab and into the world.”
“It is not an exaggeration to say that science and tech are changing the world,” said a third attendee at the event.
“There’s a new generation of people that understand science, who are excited about what’s happening, and are looking for ways to contribute.”
The event’s organizers said they expect the Science Summits to be the biggest event in the next few years.
“The future is very much a reality,” said Tim Tilden, CEO of the Future Technology Summit, which was started by Tildes and others.
“I think that is a very big thing.
And we have to be willing to take that responsibility.”
According to a report by the MIT Technology Review, Future Tech Summits are already taking place at universities and research institutions across the country, including California State University, Pomona, UC Berkeley, University of Washington, and the University of New Hampshire.
The Future Tech event also hosted an event hosted by the Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (CAST) at Harvard University.
“While the Science Forum has the same goal as the Science Festival—bringing together scientists, technology companies, and innovators—there are still a lot more opportunities for collaboration and sharing that can take place at MIT,” said Tilder.
“At MIT, we are always working to create opportunities for innovation and collaboration that will impact the world.
In fact, we have a special interest in bridging these two worlds.”
The Future Science Summit’s organizers told Newsweek they are looking forward to having more events planned in the coming years.
They say they are excited to see what these upcoming events will bring to their attendees.
“Hopefully we will see more opportunities to connect with other
