Gemini lecture on “Smart University – The University as a (context) platform”

Professor Thomas Roth-Berghofer, Head of Research Cluster Digital Communities at the University of West London is giving a talk on “Smart University – The University as a (context) platform”.

The Smart University is the vision of the university as a platform that delivers foundational context data to drive the analysis and improvement of the teaching & learning environment. Low-cost motion detection and other sensors coupled with low-cost credit-card sized computers such as the Raspberry Pi open up opportunities to equip rooms with sensors. As the Raspberry Pi is a full-fledged computing device not only can one acquire data, but also process it in context. In this talk he will present this vision and some work that have done in the Centre for Intelligent Computing.

Time: Monday, 1st December, 13:15
Place: ITV354
Speaker: Thomas Roth-Berghofer

A week of intelligent transportation systems done

A long week of demonstrating some of the different AI project we carry out with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration is done.

It has been a long week and would not have been a sucess with the help of some of our clever students. A big thanks to Christian Skjetne, who managed this with a steady hand. He was there all week, explaining to the public, Norwegian TV2 and the Minister of Transport and Communications.

The stand included a demonstration of platooning, using our ChIRP robots.

It also included the intelligent traffic lights, and a possibility for people to drive a lorry using the Oculus 3D headset

Finally, the Minister of Transport and Communications, Ketil Solvik-Olsen visited the stand and received an introduction to the use of autonomus robots in intelligent transportation systems.
