He holds three degrees from Harvard University and has co-authored more than 50 papers, mostly on topics in computer graphics, human-computer interaction and artificial intelligence. In this fascinating discussion, Marks will present a selection of industrial projects by himself and his colleagues to a panel of distinguished UCSB faculty members and ask them to make evaluative predictions of their worth.
