Introducing the 2018 Access FYI: FedEx Young Innovators List
Explore our picks of the people, places and ideas reshaping our future.
Technologies that were little more than science fiction not long ago are firmly in the here and now: autonomous vehicles traversing city streets, sensors monitoring fragile marine life, artificial intelligence bringing us closer to curing diseases. What does the future hold from here? Young Innovators — and the places and ideas behind their work — have the answers.
Atima Lui, whose company’s algorithm is helping connect women of color to beauty and fashion products, not to mention a boost of confidence, is one example. So are places such as Michigan, where Young Innovators are redefining the automotive industry by developing the most comprehensive testing grounds for autonomous vehicles in North America. The same goes for the ingenuity behind ideas such as RapidSOS, a technology that connects cell phones and other devices to emergency services.
At FedEx, we celebrate the people, places and ideas behind this world of breakthroughs. Explore 21 of the most remarkable examples in the 2018 Access FYI: FedEx Young Innovators List.
