Future mobile, wearable, and IoT devices require a scalable interaction paradigm that can be used across various devices and applications. Project Soli from the Google ATAP group will provide a universal interaction platform and interaction language that can be used across multiple device categories where a touchscreen is either not feasible or impossible to use.
At this School of Arts, Media and Engineering’s Digital Culture Speaker Series event, Associate Professor David Frakes will talk about the Soli mission and vision, and present the current state of the technology. He will also explore the broader Google ATAP model.
