GVU Fall Research Showcase
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
GVU Center Fall Research Showcase
Technology that is changing the scope and quality of many human interactions - including healthcare, social networking, education and civic engagement - is being created at the GVU Center. We invite you to explore and interact with that future technology at the Oct. 30 GVU Center Fall Research Showcase. What will be the next great innovation in mobile apps, digital design or wearable computing? At the research showcase, experience a hands-on vision of the ideas and applications that you may be carrying in your pocket or using in the workspace in the near future.
Users will be able to test drive many of the more than 80 demos including applications that let you text without looking, interact with virtual objects placed in real physical spaces, and learn to play the piano with a tech-enhanced glove.
Researchers will show off Georgia Tech technology that is part of local community and government initiatives to create civic engagement and change. One example benefits cyclists using a new app that will allow Atlanta city planners to allocate funds for a new city biking infrastructure. Also, take a peek at forward-thinking designs, such as a wearable computing system for dogs with occupations.
When & Where
The GVU Center at Georgia Tech
GVU is an interdisciplinary research center that brings together people and expertise from all six Georgia Tech colleges in order to solve complex problems.
Our goal is to make the world a better place through fundamental and applied interdisciplinary computing research. We want to help people and communities to be connected to one another, to communicate, to learn, to heal, to be entertained, to create, to express their ideas and visions, and to be given the tools and opportunity to expand their potential and improve their lives.
We’ve created a unique environment where some of the most progressive work in academic research is being done. Our program has gained international prominence and has become a hot spot for faculty and students committed to developing people-focused, creative, socially relevant technologies
