Description

Julie leads the Public and Performative Interaction group at the University of Glasgow. In her talk, she tell the story of how technology and a splash of creativity can make our environments come to life and gives a glimpse of how smart cities could look like. Dr. Julie Williamson, a member of Glasgow Interactive System Group, is a lecturer in Human Computer Interaction at The University of Glasgow. Her research focuses on how people use technology in public and the ways in which this can be used to change our urban landscape. In her speech she will talk about her ongoing work to re-appropriate public spaces through digital interactive art, and a recent project that has brought light, play, and interaction to a relatively derelict and empty space on campus. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
