CHI 2012 Media Advisory for Thursday, May 10th
Welcome to the Final day of CHI 2012!
The following “press-only” event has been planned for you to help facilitate your gathering of information about the future of Computer-Human Interaction.
11:30 - 12:00 A Conversation with … Dr Hugh M. Herr
Dr. Hugh M. Herr of MIT Media Lab, will close the conference with his keynote presentation, Designing Intelligent Orthotics and Prosthetics. Dr Herr explains, "My primary research objective is to apply principles of biomechanics and neural control to guide the designs of wearable robotic systems for human rehabilitation and physical augmentation. When well designed and properly customized to the individual, these devices not only traverse physical limitations, but also become very much a part of the wearer's physical self".
Location: Press Room Level 3, Room C8 of Austin Convention Center
Please let us know if you would like assistance in facilitating interviews. Also, as your articles are posted, please send us links and we will post your work with the CHI 2012 Media Clips.
