We had a fantastic morning and lunch with over 80 Academics, researchers and students at a special event our team ran on the Kinect for Windows SDK.
The speakers and agenda for the day was as follows:-
Introductions - Geoff Hughes, Developer Platform Evangelism, Microsoft Ltd
The Science of Kinect - Andrew Fitzgibbon, PhD, Microsoft Research Cambridge
Overview of Kinect for Windows SDK - Dave Brown, PhD, Microsoft Technology Centre
Demos from David’s Presentation are available here
Microsoft External Research Connections - Kenji Takeda, PhD, Microsoft Research Cambridge
It was a great morning with lots of stimulating thoughts, discussion and debate and UK academic’s are certainly thinking of interesting uses for the Kinect device and its potential usage within teaching, learning and research.
We would welcome any ideas you might have and also keep us informed of your progress with the SDK.
