The Center for Human-Centered Computing will be hosting HCC Demo Day at Michigan Tech on November 2, 2017. Across campus researchers who “design with humans in mind” will be showcasing their work to the community through a series of demos, lectures and tours.

HCC Demo Day kicks off with a free lunch and lecture by ICC Distinguished Lecturer, Elizabeth Whitaker from Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) Principal Research Engineer and GTRI Fellow. Her talk is entitled, “How Can Cognitive Systems Support Humans in Solving Problems?”

Participants from other institutions are welcome and HCC’s Demo Day is open to the public. Anyone interested in research, education or service that is associated with human factors, human- centered design, usability, ergonomics, or other fields related to humans and technology are warmly invited to attend.

What is the Center for Human-Centered Computing (HCC)? 

The HCC is one of the five research centers at the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC) at Michigan Tech. Members of HCC conduct novel experiments and research in multiple areas in human-centered computing. Their research focus is people and technology, specifically, integrating art, people, design, technology, and experiences. The HCC prepares Michigan Tech students to become future creators with balanced viewpoints, by educating their computing side, their human side, and their interactions.
