Infotech Day offers topical information for everyone interested in information technology
Infotech Oulu presents itself on Infotech Day at the University of Oulu on Thursday, October 31, starting at 10 a.m. The programme consists of speeches and demonstrations arranged by research groups belonging to Infotech. The keynote speaker is the CTO of Nokia Mobile Phones, Professor Yrjö Neuvo. Also posters depicting the operation of the research groups are presented during the day.
As one of the Infotech groups, MediaTeam is actively involved in the arrangements. Our researchers demonstrate a video retrieval system as well as Time Machine Oulu, which provides a new interface for getting to know the history of the Oulu town (http://www.mediateam.oulu.fi/downloads/?lang=en&demo=4).
The purpose of the Infotech Day is not only to present the operation of Infotech Oulu, but also to open up new possibilities for cooperation. The target audience consists of people from related businesses and educational institutes, the media, Infotech personnel and practically anyone, who is interested in the research of information technology.
The lectures are given in Finnish in the hall L10. After the lectures, the audience has an opportunity to visit the related laboratories. Admission to the event is free.
