Imagine the possibility of the Internet of Things, by bringing intelligence to disposable goods. Dr. Davor Sutija, Hertz Fellow 1987, CEO of Thinfilm Electronics ASA, is leading the development of printed electronics and printed rewritable memory. Davor’s vision is a world where every item is tagged with memory and sensors, harvesting information that then can be gathered at leisure, whether to integrate memory into toys or collectible cards, to detect product authenticity, or to source ingredients from farm to fork. Davor also worked at Microsoft, FAST, and the Renewable Energy Corporation ASA. He is a PhD graduate from UC Berkeley in chemical engineering, where he developed novel microsensors.
