Emerging Technology Fellows

Emerging Technology Fellows are world-class leaders who visit Berkeley to work on complex leadership challenges, research, and new technologies.


Data X-Lab
Blockchain Lab

We focus on the "Future of X". For us, 'X' means new technologies, societal problems, and emerging industry areas that will change the world.  Our labs are at the most applied edge of the spectrum of all university research.

Our labs contribute pure research, but their main focus is to build teams of diverse experts from students, researchers, industry experts, and investors to produce teams that develop publications, new technologies, business models, new ventures, and social impact. Results from our labs inform and support the SCET's undergraduate, graduate, professional, and executive courses and programs.
