Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute – Craig Gotsman Interview

Interview with Prof. Craig Gotsman, Technion Computer Science professor and Founding Director of TCII-Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute. This institute is a joint venture of the Technion and Cornell University, and will be a key component of the new Cornell NYC Tech campus, a unique high-tech graduate school to be established in New York City. The goal of the entire NYC Tech campus, and the TCII within it, as conceived by Mayor Bloomberg, is to turn NYC into the high-tech capital of the world. This will be achieved by developing TCII into a fertile breeding ground for high-tech engineers. Google, New York will be the interim home of the Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute (TCII) and the CornellNYC Tech Campus. Google will initially provide 22,000 square feet, expandable to 58,000 square feet – free of charge – until the completion of the Roosevelt Island campus in 2017.
