    Virtual and augmented reality are at the forefront of graphics research. The limits of these technologies are still being explored, and in this workshop we'll discuss a few tools, such as the Windows Mixed Reality Simulator, that allow you to experiment with mixed reality, even without purchasing a headset!

    When programming, it is common to spend minutes, hours, or even days at a time working with program text where there are missing pieces, type errors, or merge conflicts. Programming environments have trouble generating meaningful feedback in these situations because programming languages typically assign formal meaning only to fully-formed, well-typed programs.

    With the massive amount of data that exists in our world, it's increasingly impossible to view our raw data and make sense of it. This is where data visualization tools come into play. Power BI is one such tool which allows us to place our data in a visual, more comprehensible, context. In this workshop, we'll be analyzing the data we've gathered from our Google Analytics talk to see how our website has performed over the semester.

    (No prior programming knowledge or knowledge about Power BI is required.)

    Activities and inventions at the intersection of arts, design, and technology can enrich the experience of the world around us. This conversational panel features artists and scholars whose work at the intersection engages deeply with people negotiating with
    learning and social abilities related to success and quality of life.

    Raspberry pi's are tiny affordable single-board computers that are nearly the size of a credit card. They enable you creating a portable version of your project with just a power source and, if you want an IoT device, an internet connection. They're a huge advantage for any hardware project due to their size and versatility! In this workshop, we'll be going over a basic project using this handy device!

    Minimal programming experience required. If you have a raspberry pi, feel free to bring it to the workshop!

    Humans today interact frequently and intensively with a wide range of computing devices. These interactions generate data streams that can, in some cases, be analyzed to extract clues about the physical and mental states of users. Such latent information can be used to help create more intelligent systems that anticipate users’ needs and provide personalized services and interventions. This capability, however, introduces new technical and social challenges.

    Advertisers increasingly rely on online behavioral advertising, such as displaying individually targeted ads abased on users' online behavior.  Between 2008 and 2018, spending on behaviorally targeted ads in the US increased from $775 million to $47 billion.  While behavioral advertising has become the holy grail of online advertisers, its effectiveness relies on the quantity and quality of data available about an individual.  As a direct consequence, respect for user privacy has taken a back seat to profit margins, and user data has become the currency of the Internet.  Data harvesting and

    Hardware errors are projected to drastically increase in modern computer systems due to shrinking feature sizes and increasing manufacturing variations. The impact of hardware faults on programs can be catastrophic, and can lead to substantial financial and societal consequences. Error propagation is often the leading cause of catastrophic system failures, and hence must be mitigated. Traditional hardware-only techniques to avoid error propagation are energy hungry, and hence not suitable for commodity systems.

    Sensors and peripherals are becoming increasingly popular in the world of hardware and the Internet of Things. They help provide us the data we need to make the next big hardware project of our dreams. This talk will walk you through the basics of using sensors and peripherals in a basic hardware project.

    Minimal programming experience required. Several sensors and peripherals will be provided by SiTS, but if you have your own, feel free to bring them with to work alongside us on your own devices!
