On January 28, UW CSE Ph.D. alum Adrien Treuille, a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon on leave at Google X, will begin by providing an overview of activities at Google X.
Then Nick Hobbs, a graduate of Olin College and a PM at Google X, will discuss the Driverless Car Project.

On February 1, UW alum and former UW EE professor Babak Parviz, co-creator of Google’s Project Glass, will describe that project. Babak’s Google colleagues Nirmal Patel and Bob Ryskamp also will participate.
