Please join us for a candid discussion with Prof. Amnon Shashua, the CEO of Mobileye.

Prof. Tomaso Poggio, Director, Center for Brains, Minds and Machines, MIT will be the moderator, and we will also hear from An Jimenez (Computation & Cognition '21), a MISTI MIT-Israel alumna.

We would like to thank the MIT Quest for Intelligence, CSAIL, MIT Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines, and the MIT Mobility Initiative for co-sponsoring the event.

This webinar is part of the MIT-Israel Breaking Boundaries: Israelis in Science, Technology and the Economy series. In this series, we will focus on Israeli MIT alumni and others who have played and continue to play a transformative role on Israeli society. Each speaker will discuss their personal stories, how MIT influenced them, professional challenges and how they overcame them, what boundaries they felt they broke through and what tools they used to do so, as well as advice for MIT students and alumni.
