ACM CHI the premier Human-Computer Interaction conference is being held at San Jose ‘in the heart of Silicon Valley’ May 7 – 12. There are panels and papers on robotics, and about the next generation of interfaces that will impact robotics and all our technologies. Live streaming to begin Monday May 9, at 08:30 (PST).
As the organizers mention: “CHI is a place to see, discuss and learn about the future of how people interact with technology. At any minute you might experience a new gesture interface for tablets, learn how developing countries use mobile phones for maternal health, play soccer against someone 3000 miles away, or debate the future of online education.”
If you can’t make it to CHI in person there are a few telepresence robots available for participants with mobility impairments, health issues, or travel limitations. Beam Pro telepresence robots from Suitable Technologies will allow select attendees to participate in the interactive demos, attend talks, and mingle with other participants.
There will be live streaming at 8.30am (PDT) Monday, May 9th of the major major conference panels with plenaries from luminaries such as Alan Kay, Marissa Mayer, Kimberly Bryant, Dayo Olopade, Terry Winograd, Sarah Guthals, Vishal Sikka and Salman Khan. The live stream will also show the student design, game competitions, and the video showcase. See the schedule for more information.
