Collaborations across transatlantic borders can bridge the gap and highlight overlap between two career avenues that have been noted in their unique differences: research centers and industry start-ups. Using the International Computer Science Institute located in the San Francisco Bay Area with its German funded DAAD program as a central case study, panelists will share their research and expertise about network security, deep learning, advanced smart factories, and industrial AI that is key to the next decade of the fourth industrial revolution. The focus will be on advancing R&D beyond borders, and the subsequent innovation found through transatlantic research collaboration. The panelists will highlight how their research has launched successful start-ups branched into various industries and beyond.
