In a recent PeHub interview with Dan Huttenlocher, the dean of computing and information science at Cornell, discuss the recent RFP announcement from the Bloomberg administration to building a science and engineering campus in NY. The dean explains that Cornell, which is one of the universities in the running, sees NY not as another potential Silicon Valley, but a tech center more integrated with media and advertising. Though there’s a risk to the institution’s reputation if they lost, he says that the bigger risk is not participating in this new initiative. Also, he says that the 50,000 alumni in New York should be a helpful advantage.
