  • Hack [ANYTHING] with Microsoft Kinect

    by Dan Fernandez and John Boiles

    If you're reading about this panel, you're likely familiar with - or at least interested in - the Microsoft Kinect. The Kinect's RGB camera and "depth" cameras simplify computer vision problems that were previously very difficult -- like interpreting skeletal motion. How else can gesture and speech technology change the way people interact with each other, find information, or perhaps locate the best nearby sandwich? The answer: Kinect meets the Internet. Join representatives from Microsoft and Yelp for a discussion about designing user interfaces for Kinect; some of the challenges of the technology; and how to build experiences optimized for hands-free interaction. Additionally, see demos of hacks, and learn how you can incorporate Kinect into your everyday -- both professionally or personally!

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Monday 12th March

    In Salon H, Hilton Austin Downtown
