Adding Sight and Hearing to Our Devices

Dr. Bhowmik will be talking about how natural user interfaces are fast becoming a reality in computing devices, including PCs and Tablets. He will show how Intel is adding eyes and ears to its technology so that our devices will see, hear and understand us and the physical world.
