Seattle Times front page depicting Paul Allen firing t-shirt gunOn March 9th, 2017, the University of Washington Board of Regents approved the establishment of the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering in recognition of our increasing prominence and impact on campus, in our region, and around the world — and to honor Paul Allen’s many contributions to our university, to science and innovation, and to society.

Today, Allen marked the one-year anniversary of our founding by highlighting 10 exciting innovations from the Allen School that are advancing the field of computer science and helping to make the world a better place. From the article:

“One year ago, with the clink of champagne glasses and the pop of a t-shirt gun, the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington was christened. With a mission to drive technology forward and a motivation to change the world for the better, the Allen School has already shown itself as global hub for technology innovation. From battery-free cellphones to 3D printed smart objects as well as the development of a digital storage system using DNA, here are just 10 of the many innovations that have come out of the school over the past year.”

Thanks, Paul, for your ongoing friendship and support — and for highlighting the contributions of our faculty and students.

Happy one-year anniversary to us!
