Steve Wozniak joins the UTS Magic Lab
UTS is stepping up to deliver the best people who will inspire and motivate students as they embark on challenges and opportunities that will be informed by massive transitions in technology, society, human well-being, values and the global ecosystem.
Described as a creative genius Steve Wozniak the co-founder of Apple has an eye on becoming an Australian and with that goal in mind came onboard as an Adjunct Professor within the UTS Magic Lab in 2015 at the invitation of UTS Professor Mary-Anne Williams.
The Magic Lab develops innovative technologies such as social robots, autonomous cars and artificial intelligence.
Steve Wozniak’s appointment at UTS evidences the commitment of the UTS to technological innovation, which complements the trans disciplinary ethos of the university as it aligns its courses for the 21st century.
UTS PhD student and Magic Lab regular Mahya Poueinag said meeting Wozniak was a life-changing experience. “What we haven’t had in Australia is what students at Harvard and MIT have access to,” said Mahya, “The people that had done something really powerful in the world. Australia needs to invest in these people in order to compete with the best in the world.”
