Join Symmetry as we sponsor ESC San Jose 2016 with the following keynote speakers: 


Wednesday, December 7

Alice Bowman, the New Horizons Mission Operations Manager (MOM), will talk about the voyage of NASA's historic mission to Pluto – which culminated with the first flight past the distant dwarf planet on July 14, 2015. She'll speak about this journey through the eyes of the mission operations team and describe some challenges of piloting the small robotic spacecraft through the solar system for nearly a decade – such as planning for (and dealing with) long-distance technical hiccups. Her team itself was part of history, operating a spacecraft that had to travel longer and farther than any mission ever to reach its main target.


Thursday, December 8

Whether you're designing a circuit, debugging a SerDes, or painting a lily pad, you call on your innovative powers every day. In this presentation, best-selling author or and renowned physicist and engineer Ransom Stephens will examine the neural processes that percolate insights into consciousness: the physics of lateral thought, the power of perspective, the value of novelty, and how your brain selects and rejects ideas before you’re even aware of them. Methods for fine-tuning the balance of stress and confidence, concentration and distraction that prime our brains to innovate our way to solutions of the challenges that we each face, as well as those that we face together, will also be discussed, as will the neuroaesthetics of what makes products and discoveries good, bad, and valuable.
