My name is Rumina Velshi, and I am the President and CEO of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, or the CNSC.
It is my great pleasure to be here with you this afternoon to participate in this intellectually stimulating event – the first of many more to come, I hope. I am hearing great things about the hackathon currently underway and think the judges are going to have some tough decisions tonight deciding amongst all the great ideas and innovations. I hope that the healthy competition embodied in this event will encourage ever bolder and more innovative ideas.
My intent over the next 15 minutes or so is to share with you a little bit about my organization and then consider some of the innovative technologies presently impacting various industries, how we deal with regulating innovation in Canada’s nuclear industry, the potential impacts of not doing innovation right, and the importance of collaboration.
