The Future Environment Laboratory held a technology exchange meeting and introduced the "state-of-the-art" to the students

The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics (KCGI), Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG) and Nihon Unisys Co., Ltd. established through an industry-academia partnership Future Environment Lab On Friday, June 2, 2017, a technical exchange meeting was held at the Kyoto Ekimae Satellite to convey the latest technology to students.

The theme of this year's technology exchange was "Natural User Interface", "Virtual Reality (VR)", and "Robotics".A large number of students visited the site and enjoyed actually touching the technology and deepening their understanding by listening to the explanations of the researchers.

The researcher said, "There are many things that we can understand better by actually touching them.We live in an age where we can easily implement things that seem too advanced, so I hope that this technology exchange event will lead to new challenges for students.And I hope that they will continue to give shape to their innovative ideas," he said.

The students who participated in the technical exchange meeting not only had hands-on experience, but also asked the researchers questions about programming languages and various IT technologies.I will definitely participate in the event when it is held again," he said with a twinkle in his eye.

Before the technical exchange meeting, each researcher gave a lecture to first-year students in KCG's "Special Lecture 1" class and explained the outline of each theme.

The Future Environment Laboratory plans to continue to hold regular technical exchange meetings and various other events in the future.
