Before the event kicked off, we had an hour of networking and socialising which helped break the ice and enabled us to connect with like-minded individuals. This was followed by inspiring keynotes from Gillian Arnold, Mariana Fonseca, Tristi Tanaka, and Diana Maynard. They each shared a piece of their journey, valuable insights into their fields, tips for success, and other career ideas. Their talks not only enlightened us but also inspired us to reach greater heights in our work.
The poster content then kicked off, where we had a chance to hear a range of research projects from students from across the UK, including from our own Gowthami who presented her research on AI-MoCap technology in augmenting human motion. Other projects ranged from studying fish movements to enhance robot navigation, to using modern technology for predicting multiple health conditions, we learnt new topics in computer science which pushed boundaries and challenged our views.
