Bill Gates Stops by Stata
23 April 2010
Retired Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates paid a visit to CSAIL earlier this week during a visit to campus. Funds donated by Gates helped to make the Stata Center a reality, and the building's Gates Tower bears his name.
Now chiefly a philanthropist, Gates believes that first and foremost, technology should be a force for good in the world. He shared this message Wednesday with MIT students in a talk at Kresge Auditorium called "Giving Back: Finding the Best Way to Make A Difference."
