#2: Neurocognition, Education, and Innovation
Make Computers our Sixth Sense
Ethically designed, secure and intelligent computing systems, robotic devices and sensors will augment human capabilities, improving human-to-human connections, mitigating disabilities, enhancing agriculture and modernizing manufacturing. Through the study of cognition in nature, we will design and invent learning systems, computers and sensors to create a more humane and livable world.
Revolutionize Science and Math Literacy for the 21st Century
Engaging and accessible education equips people with the scientific, mathematical, statistical and computational literacy needed for success in modern society. We will innovate, measure and refine our practices so that society has the tools to embrace the scientific method, better analyze information and make sounder decisions.
Expand our Contribution to the Innovation Ecosystem
Fuelled by faculty discoveries, entrepreneurial pursuits of our graduates and help from our alumni and community partners, we will stoke the innovation ecosystem that is expanding Manitoba’s economy. As we grow the number of new companies and products originating from the Faculty of Science, we will increase collaborations with industry and government to help solve society’s impossible problems.
