A speaker series featuring research at Georgia Tech
Did you ever wonder what was really happening in the research labs here at Georgia Tech? Well here's your chance to learn. The Georgia Tech Library is sponsoring a new lecture series called "Tuesday Talks" focusing on the exciting areas of research that are flourishing on the Georgia Tech campus. The lectures will feature Georgia Tech Faculty as speakers.
Cathy Carpenter, Information Services Librarian said, "Libraries are in the business of sharing information and we thought the Georgia Tech library was the perfect venue to sponsor such a program and to help promote and disseminate research findings across the campus community."
Dr. Steve Potter, Biomedical Engineering Department, will kick off the speaker series with a talk entitled "Hybrots: Living Neuronal Networks" on February 22. Dr. Irfan Essa, College of Computing, will follow with a talk on "Sensing the Aware Home". April's speaker will be Thad Starner, College of Computing, and he will be discussing "Face to Face Discussion with Wearable Computers".
Lori Critz, Information Services Librarian said, "Our goal of the lecture series is to increase understanding of what is usually quite esoteric information. We hope to make research understandable to the average person."
All of the lectures are free and will be held at 2:30pm in the Wilby room of the Georgia Tech Library. Light refreshments will be provided.
