We’ll be showing how Kinect for Windows is transforming how we interact with and use technology, from a sign-language translation system, to gesture-control and real-time 3D scanning with KinectFusion.
We’re excited to be working with the academic community to unlock the potential of cloud computing for researchers.
We’ll be on hand to talk about how our Windows Azure for Research programme offers free cloud computing awards, training, webinars, and technical guidance.
We’re currently supporting several projects across the UK and Ireland, and looking for more every couple of months throughout the year:
· Paolo Missier, Newcastle University, United Kingdom Analysis and Interpretation of Human Exome Sequencing for Clinical Diagnosis and EHR Integration in the Cloud
· Ian Gent, University of St Andrews, United Kingdom Recomputation of Scientific Experiments
· Philip Kershaw, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, United Kingdom JASMIN
· Blesson Varghese, University of St Andrews, UK Real-time Catastrophe Risk Management on Windows Azure
· Julio Hernandez-Castro, University of Kent, UK ChessWitan: Mining chess data to distinguish human from computer play
· Nadarajen Veerapen, University of Stirling, UK Automated Bug Fixing
· Vassilis Glenis, Newcastle University, UK Modelling Flood Risk in Urban Areas
· Liliana Pasquale, University of Limerick, Ireland Minority Report: Using the Cloud to Enable Proactive Digital Forensic Investigations
So please come and join us at JISC DigiFest, and on LinkedIn, to tell us how technology can help you.
