On Thursday, April 11 at 11am in the Conference room of the Euclide building, we will have the pleasure welcome Jeff Burke who will give a presentation on cross-fertilization between technologies and art production.

Jeff Burke is Professor In-Residence of performance and technology in the Department of Theater and Associate Dean for Technology and Innovation in the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (TFT). Since 2010, he has been a co-PI and application team lead for the Named Data Networking project, a multi-campus effort supported by the NSF and an international consortium to develop a future Internet architecture, most recently supported through a joint Intel/NSF award for research on advanced platforms for augmented reality. Jeff is also the UCLA representative for the UCA/UCLA Storytelling Institute. (Link to full bio)

Despite its centrality to our identities and history, advancing human creative expression is underutilized as a driver for contemporary science and engineering.  This talk (briefly) explores our local efforts to do so through a few research programs at UCLA REMAP, the Center for Research in Engineering, Media and Performance.  The examples will focus on recent work in augmented reality, applied machine learning, and future internet architecture incorporated into artistic production and platforms for art, education, and civic engagement. Through them, the talk (gently) argues for enabling the pursuit of creative expression to shape technological trajectories as much as we let it be shaped by them.
