In his address at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa, Sydney-based Magid focused on the future directions of Technion research and applications citing the use of quantum dynamics to release the process of computation from the straight-jacket of the binary switch and Distinguished Professor Moti Segev’s advances in photonic transmission to replace electronic communication.

These are just two areas in a dynamic institution which covers ground breaking research ranging from bio-technology, medical technology through to aeronautical engineering, micro satellites and the natural environment.

The occasion of the 2016 Board of Governors of Technion is the annual event on which the achievements of researchers, research teams and innovators are recognised and honoured.

A spokesman said: “The Magid Family contribution will significantly add to the practical output of Technion and of Israel.”
