This volume presents papers on the topics covered at the National Academy of Engineering's 2016 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. Every year the symposium brings together 100 outstanding young leaders in engineering to share their cutting-edge research and innovations in selected areas. The 2016 symposium was held September 19-21 at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman center in Irvine, California, and included sessions on high-performance computer graphics and vision; extreme autonomy in space, air, land, and under water; water desalination and purification; and technologies for understanding and treating cancer. The intent of this book is to highlight innovative developments in engineering research and technical work in these areas.
