Roger N. Anderson
ConEdison Senior Scholar
Center for Computational Learning Systems, Columbia University

Dr. Anderson will discuss how our evolving understanding of the root causes of electric grid failures has helped lower the electric component failure rates of the distribution grid in New York City by 30 to 40 percent. Additional cost savings from the implementation of “virtual” systems and automated switching are delaying or eliminating the need to add more copper to the physical grid.

Hosted by:

  • Michael Crow, President, ASU
  • Gary Dirks, Director, LightWorks
  • Todd Hardy, Associate Vice President for Economic Affairs, ASU

Roger N. Anderson is the ConEdison Senior Scholar at the Center for Computational Learning Systems at Columbia University.

His team of 15 scientists and graduate students is developing the next generation of intelligent control systems for the electric grid of New York City.

Roger’s team was chosen as the “Winning University Program” in GE’s Ecomagination Innovation Challenge, receiving a $1.2 million award from GE CEO Jeff Immelt.
