LORD Rees, president of the Royal Society and Master of Trinity College, has officially opened the Toshiba Cambridge Research Laboratory on the science park.
Toshiba has three main areas of research underway in the new building, in quantum physics, speech recognition and computer vision. The speech recognition team is working on a system that will be trialled at next year's Beijing Olympics, where users will be able to speak to a small PC which will translate what has been said in, say, English, into Chinese.
www.getdesign.in - My periodic blog exploring the world of business, experience design and interaction, with a smattering of gadgetry and social media. A world where business, people and technology meet.
Let's Fix Things: For over two decades I've been consulting in Communications Design: Everything from business strategy and processes, through to technology, interaction and customer experience. The thoughts here are my own, not necessarily that of my employer.
I have a penchant for spotting patterns and fixing broken user and customer experiences. Even my Bumblebee project hasn't escaped - I've been using Six Sigma techniques to study and predict their behaviour patterns. ☺
