The Virtual 2021_2022 Page HeaderWhat's that coming over the hill, is it the Virtual? It absolutely is!
Our 20-21 PostGrad/PostDoc/P.I. Lecture series kicks off again on Friday 24 Sep at 4pm, and every Friday thereafter, via zoom, as per the schedule below.
We'll be hosting virtual talks by many of our own PostGrads and IBAHCM Researchers. It's guaranteed to be a fun, informative and enlightening regular event. 
So, fire up your Zoom and discover what our PGR students - and the occasional PI and PostDoc -  have been up to in these COVID times! Your input is invaluable and will help them improve. it will also be a chance to see familiar IBAHCM faces and some new ones too!
Food, drinks, kids and pets allowed (with the mic off, of course!). For the most up to date info, please also visit our IBAHCM Calendar.

The inaugural Lecture for this year will be given by Dr. Ilyena Hirskyj-Douglas, Lecturer with the School of Computing Science and an Associate of IBAHCM. Ilyena's Talk Summary is as follows:

"In this talk, I will introduce my work in Animal-Computer Interaction, which is researchers into how animals can interact with computer systems and design and build methods to capture this interaction. As a computer scientist, I have spent the last decade building novel devices for animals: from music and audio systems for monkeys in the zoo to screen systems for dogs in homes and to proposing internet systems for animals to connect while alone. My work focuses on building frameworks to design computer systems for animals, how animals can control systems of their autonomy, and how internet-connected devices can support animals' lives. Recently moving to Glasgow University, I will give a brief overview of the Animal-Computer Interaction field, my past research work and plans in the hope of finding collaborators."
