Carnegie Mellon University is stimulating ideas at the World Economic Forum …

… and helping to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

CMU is one of only 25 universities in the world, 11 in the U.S., that have been invited to join the Global University Leaders Forum (GULF). Business members of the Forum include the top 1,000 companies from around the world that drive the economy forward and collaborate on shaping global, regional and industry agendas.

As CMU's representative to GULF, President Subra Suresh takes part in sessions and conversations that continue to elevate the strategic goals of the university. And CMU faculty present and participate in panels, labs, councils and sessions that propel ideas among leaders and colleagues worldwide.

CMU's Research Cited in Top 10 Emerging Technologies List

The Forum's 2014 list of Top 10 Emerging Technologies cites CMU's pioneering research in the quantified self, which is based on the idea that continually collecting data on everyday activities can help individuals make better choices on health and behavior. As examples of the potential impact of the quantified self, the report notes projects by CMU that are exploring the use of smartphone data to help detect the onset of depression and use of urban areas.
