Upcoming Talks:

Extreme Crowdsourcing: From Balloons to Ethics

Iyad Rahwan, MIT Media Lab

📅  February 21, 2017 (Tuesday), 2pm-3pm
📍 Kiva Seminar Room, Stata Center (32G-449)

Abstract:

This talk explores the physical and cognitive limits of crowds, by following a number of real-world experiments that utilized social media to mobilize the masses in tasks of unprecedented complexity. From finding people in remote cities, to reconstructing shredded documents, the power of crowdsourcing is real, but so are exploitation, sabotage, and hidden biases that undermine the power of crowds.

Bio:

Iyad Rahwan is the AT&T Career Development Professor and an Associate Professor of Media Arts & Sciences at the MIT Media Lab, where he leads the Scalable Cooperation group. He holds a PhD from the University of Melbourne, Australia, and is an affiliate faculty at the MIT Institute of Data, Systems and Society (IDSS).


Prior Talks in 2017:

Dynamic Drawings for Communication & Design

Rubaiat Habib, Autodesk Research

📅  February 7, 2017 (Tuesday), 1pm-2pm
📍 Kiva Seminar Room, Stata Center (32G-449)



Abstract:

In this talk, I am going to present and demo our award winning research initiative on creating custom animations - Project Draco. Project Draco was recently released as Sketchbook Motion, and was featured by Apple as "The best iPad app of the year 2016". With Project Draco, we investigate the question of how we can enable everyone to bring life to otherwise static drawings—how can we make animation as easy as sketching a static image? Most of us experience the power of animated media every day: animation makes it easy to communicate complex ideas beyond verbal language. However, only few of us have the skills to express ourselves through this medium. By making animation as easy, accessible, and fluid as sketching, I intend to make dynamic drawings a powerful medium to think, create, and communicate rapidly.

Bio:

Rubaiat Habib is a Sr. Research Scientist, artist, and designer at Autodesk Research. His research interest lies at the intersection of Computer Graphics and HCI for creative thinking, design, and storytelling. Rubaiat received several awards for his work including two ACM CHI Best Paper Nominations, ACM CHI and ACM UIST Peoples’ choice best talk awards, and ACM CHI Golden Mouse awards for best research videos. For his PhD at the National University of Singapore, Rubaiat also received a Microsoft Research Asia PhD fellowship. Rubaiat’s research in dynamic drawings and animation is regularly turned into new products reaching a global audience. As a freelance cartoonist and designer, he contributed to a number of magazines, books, and newspapers.
