Everyday Computing

We introduce a new area of interaction research, everyday computing, by focusing on scaling ubiquitous computing with respect to time. Our motivations for everyday computing stem from wanting to support the informal and unstructured activities typical of much of our everyday lives. Our goal is understanding the transformation of everyday life as computing is ubiquitously integrated into informal, daily activities and routines.

Beth attends the 2016 White House Frontiers Conference | October 14, 2016

On October 13, the White House hosted a day-long conference focused on the research and programs on the forefront of U.S. science and technology. This invitation-only event brings together technologists, innovators, researchers and industry leaders to participate in conversations around what are the grand challenges and cutting-edge research for the next several decades. The frontiers discussed this year included health care innovation and precision medicine, accelerating clean energy, space exploration.

Mynatt participated in the National Frontiers track, where attendees discussed harnessing the potential of artificial intelligence, including data science, machine learning, automation, and robotics.

The White House also announced new research partnerships and a $300 million investment in research initiatives that reflected the frontiers discussed at the conference.
