So do you know where I'll be this summer? I'll be here in Atlanta working in the Computer Engineering building in the Digital media lab. Oh sure that doesn't sound exciting but wait there's more.
I'll be coding in Java. Oh no, that's not the exciting part.
I'll be working on a project which involves intelligent systems interacting with users while they brainstorm on whiteboards which the computer monitors and interprets their writings and then searches databases for references and information related to what they're writing.
That's the exciting part. This is exactly the thing I've wanted to get involved with ever since my interest in Computer forensics has lessened. Not quite sure what I mean? Well imagine working for a company and your team begins brainstorming how to build an engine so you all begin drawing on the board, writing pieces you'll need and as you do the walls around you fill with pertinent information about your design thus far.
Or if you want to look further into the future, think Minority Report and think of this as a step in that direction.
I'm so stoked.
