Carnegie Mellon University sent a delegation of faculty, students and alumni to the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting of New Champions, Sept. 18-20 in Tianjin, China. The meeting, which carries the theme "Shaping Innovative Societies in the Fourth Industrial Revolution," is discussing the essential elements required for creating the innovative societies of the future. 

Po-Shen Loh, associate professor of mathematical sciences, is attending the meeting as part of the Young Scientists Community's Class of 2018. Loh is a leader in developing innovative methods for teaching math, including smartphone learning systems, which he advances through his company, Expii. Loh also serves as head coach of the U.S. International Mathematical Olympiad team, which took first place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania this summer. This was the United States’ third world mathematics title since Loh took over leadership of the team four years ago.
