From the #mediaX2015 Conference “Writing the Code for Personal Relevance”; James Landay, Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, examines the many urgent problems facing the planet: a degrading environment, a healthcare system in crisis, and educational systems that are failing to produce creative, innovative thinkers to solve tomorrow’s problems. He illustrates how he’s addressing these grand challenges in research by building systems that balance innovative on-body user interfaces with novel activity inference technology. These systems have helped individuals stay fit, led families to be more sustainable in their everyday lives, and supported learners in acquiring second languages.
