SCHENECTADY — Technology is advancing at such a rapid pace, Alain Kaloyeros told graduates at Schenectady County Community College, that soon a laptop will have the computational power of the human brain.
It was one of several points used by Kaloyeros, the region’s technology “rock star” and CEO and senior vice president of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University at Albany, to get across his message to students that learning doesn’t stop with a diploma.
“You must therefore learn how to teach and learn in an ever-innovation-driven economy,” Kaloyeros told the graduates. “Even us old dogs, meaning the teachers, must continue to learn new tricks, and we can.”
