Integrating Sensor Networks, Machine Learning, and Context Awareness in Pervasive Computing Environments
Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science

Ubiquitous computing offers the vision of a world in which computing is distributed and embedded into everyday devices and places, creating "smart" rooms, homes, offices and public spaces which are fundamentally more responsive to each person's needs [Weiser]. Users will be able to seamlessly interact with a wide variety of internetworked wireless and wired devices, e.g. printers, monitors, speakers, wearable computers, appliances, kiosks, toys, wireless PDA peers, GPS-enabled mobile phones, as well as networks of sensors. In this talk, we will highlight some of the research challenges in "smart" spaces as well as sensor networks being addressed in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado.

BACTAC, the Beverage And Chips Tuesday Afternoon Colloquium, is a weekly forum run by graduate students. The goal is provide an informal setting in which anyone can (basically) present anything. In the past, we have had practice talks for conferences and job interviews, research reports, juggle lessons (!), student representative reports, internship discussions, an introduction to ergonomics, and "pay attention to this when you are going to look for job" discussions.

BACTAC is meant to be an informal and social event to promote the interaction among graduate students. BACTAC is typically held every Tuesday, at 3:30pm, in room ECOT 831. Free munchies and drinks are provided.

Please email Caleb Phillips for more information or if you want to be a speaker.
