2017 – 2018 HII Seminars to Begin This Thursday

The 2017 – 2018 Health Informatics Institute seminar series kicks off this Thursday, September 7th at 12:00 p.m, in 241 Russell Hall, Health Sciences Campus

This Thursday’s seminar will feature the Georgia Informatics Institute founding director, Kyle JohnsenDr. Johnsen is an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and is the founding director of the Georgia Informatics Institutes (GII) for Research and Education.  His highly interdisciplinary research is in the design and evaluation of novel human-computer systems, particularly those that involve ubiquitous computing and virtual reality, that address societal problems. Examples of his work can be found in the NOAA-funded Marine Debris Tracker App (marinedebris.engr.uga.edu), NSF-funded Virtual STEM Buddies exhibit at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta, and NIH-funded nervesim.com.

The seminar, titled “Informatics of Virtual Experiences: Applications in Health and Education,” will focus on the innovative and useful informatics systems that can be created by tying together user identity, interactions with virtual experiences, and activities in real life.  Concrete examples from past and current projects will be presented as well as opportunities for future research and collaborations.

The series will continue each month, hosting seminars in Russell Hall on the first Thursday of the month. For more information, please contact Dr. Andreas Handel at .
