As computer vision speeds its panoptic advance in to public space, our environment will become filled with visual aids to computer vision techniques, allowing the categorization […]
Yesterday I gave a short talk on the Rapid prototyping of Interaction Design for a profession development event at the University of Toronto’s Knowledge Media Design Institute. These guys are doing some incredibly interesting work in Toronto right now, so it was a surprise and an honour to have been invited to speak. I did a presentation […]
I’m giving a short lil’ talk this Wednesday about rapid prototyping as an Interaction Designer, and what I’ve learned in the past year and a half since graduating with a Political Science specialist degree from the University of Toronto. It’s exciting to be able to share what I’ve been learning with others entering or about to […]
