At Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe, we are committed to sharing new ideas on digital workplaces and finding new academic and industrial partners to collaborate with. And recently, we took this further afield, attending the International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction over the 15th-20th of July in Las Vegas, USA. This 20th edition of HCI International welcomed c1700 participants from 74 countries, hosting 12 affiliated conferences (full details available here) under the auspices of 14 distinguished international boards.
The most valuable yet limited resource we have as human beings is time. Indeed time, and making the most of it, was a focal point within the second edition of Konica Minolta’s International University Contest. Andrea Cavallaro, as a jury member, tells us about the awards ceremony held at the Konica Minolta Experience Centre in Amsterdam on 21st April.
At Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe we keep focusing on Artificial Intelligence, especially with an interest on applications for future workplaces, digital healthcare and digital manufacturing. After the AI Summit of New York during which we presented Cognitive Hub, we have just launched a research topic dedicated to the Workplace of the Future within the open access journal ‘Frontiers’, and in few days, our Executive Director and Deputy CTO Dennis Curry will take part in the AI Expo Global.
