Through the Princeton Catalysis Initiative (PCI), scientists, engineers and scholars are reaching across disciplinary boundaries to create and explore new research areas at the intersection of what were once separate fields. PCI held its second annual symposium on campus Jan. 15-16, bringing researchers together to help fan the sparks of innovation and collaboration.

Doctors in intensive care units face a continual dilemma: Every blood test they order could yield critical information, but also adds costs and risks for patients. To address this challenge, researchers from Princeton University are developing a computational approach to help clinicians more effectively monitor patients’ conditions and make decisions about the best opportunities to order lab tests for specific patients.

Artificial intelligence is already a part of everyday life. It helps us answer questions like “Is this email spam?” It identifies friends in online photographs, selects news stories based on our politics and helps us deposit checks via our phones — if all somewhat imperfectly.

Depending on who you ask, blockchain technology is poised to revolutionize the world — from creating a universal currency to building a free and truly private internet. Or, the new technology, built with a combination of encryption and transparency, is a solution in search of a problem.
The reality likely falls somewhere in between. While a growing number of startups and researchers are devoting themselves to exploring blockchain’s full potential, experts caution that a healthy dose of skepticism is needed to fully evaluate the technology and its eventual place in society.

In an op-ed on NJ.com, NJ Secretary of Higher Education Zakiya Smith Ellis has cited Princeton's recently announced collaborations with Google, Microsoft and Celgene as examples of the "great advantages our colleges and universities can provide to business and industry within the state."
Writing about the Google artificial intelligence lab to be led by Princeton faculty and set to open in January in downtown Princeton, Smith Ellis noted,
