The Future of Human-Computer Interaction

Saturday, March 14
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon B
500 E 4th St


The way we interact with machines expands at an astonishing rate: from immersive hardware, control systems, intelligent back-ends that anticipate information we seek, to interfaces that enable new knowledge production.

The University of Michigan conducts leading research in concert with developing community-focused, real-world solutions. Michigan is poised as the epicenter of a global rejuvenation of creative, technological, and industrial economies. What effect might brainwave controlled cars have on the industry? How do we develop products that increase sustainable practices or use smart devices to support marginalized populations?

This panel, comprised of leading researchers, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, will discuss advancements in human-computer interaction (HCI) that establish innovations across the academic and public sectors. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of innovative strategies for human-centered design in academic research and entrepreneurship.
