InSight Talk(33) | Context-Aware Research Adventures | Dr. Raghav Sampangi, Dalhousie University | Dec 29, 2016

33rd Edition of InSight Special Lecture on “Context-Aware Research Adventures” by Dr. Raghav V Sampangi, Instructor, Faculty of Computer Science; Faculty Associate, Center for Learning and Teaching, Dalhousie University, Canada on 29 December 2016 at MYRA School of Business.

Talk Summary:

Context. A word that is hard to define if we don’t know the “context” to which we are referring. Systems and interactions with such systems are more meaningful, useful, usable and efficient if the context is considered as a core element in the system design. So does life in general.

In this talk, Raghav will discuss the importance of context in modern day computing, especially in the Internet of Things. The talk will also cover the use of contextual information in various application domains such as mobile device security, user authentication, personal safety, remote healthcare, and visualisation in coordinated and multiple view environments. Raghav will also share his lessons in the iterative evolution of research projects.
