Purdue International Ideas Festival: 150 Years of Giant Leaps

Jerry Ross

Featuring the India-Purdue Collaborative Lecture Series in honor of Bharat Ratna Professor CNR Rao

Friday, January 18, 2019
Mumbai, India

The theme of Purdue's yearlong 150th anniversary celebration, “Giant Leaps,” is inspired by alumnus Neil Armstrong’s historic statement on the moon. Boilermakers and friends from around the world are invited to gather in Mumbai for a thought-provoking, half-day event featuring Purdue alumnus and NASA astronaut Jerry Ross. Participants will be urged to think deeply about the most pressing challenges and opportunities the world faces in four areas: Space Exploration, Artificial Intelligence, Health & Longevity, and Sustainable Economy & Planet. After a day of riveting talks and discussions, alumni are invited to a gala dinner to reconnect with old friends, make new ones, and carry the conversation forward.
