QoLT Brings Better Living Through Science to GA/GI

Joe McLaughlin
The Quality of Life Technology (QoLT) Center, under the leadership of Takeo Kanade, is a National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center (ERC) whose mission is to transform lives in a large and growing segment of the population – people with reduced functional capabilities due to aging or disability. A unique partnership between, Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, it's also an effective platform for industry/practitioner/academic researcher interaction and for engaging the general public in technology research. In the near future, compassionate intelligent QoLT systems will monitor and communicate with a person, understand his or her daily needs and tasks, and provide reliable and happily-accepted assistance. Come meet Lead Outreach Ambassador, Joe McLaughlin at the Glass Lofts on Friday/GA/GI evening and learn about current and upcoming QoLT projects.
