BACTAC - Barthelmess

ECOT 831

Stream-based Intelligent Applications
Paulo Barthelmess
Graduate Student, Department of Computer Science

Stream processing provides a convenient paradigm for many classes of human-centered applications including e.g. multimedia and multimodal systems, smart rooms and immersive environments. Humans generate a variety of continuous information while interacting with each other and with their environment, through speech, body language, and their actions, e.g. as they perform tasks in an office or in a classroom. Sensing, communication and processing technologies have evolved to a point where exciting new applications can be developed, that take advantage of this broad range of information to provide better support for individuals and for groups, e.g. in the form of advanced adaptive interfaces, immersive environments, smart rooms and offices.

This talk presents research challenges and opportunities in this domain, and describes my work in this area, connected to the Neem Platform and the ThreadMill architecture.

Paulo will be practicing this talk for his job interview.

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.
