This is the first of two news stories from Seattle:
I recently attended a conference here in Seattle called UBICOMP for Ubiquitous Computing. I submitted two papers and gave presentations for both of them.
The first was a workshop talk to about 30 people and the second was a talk about our research on GPS that I gave to about 600 hundred people (!). It went really well and I got lots and lots and lots of great comments from some pretty important people at the conference.
Some people told my summer boss at Intel that it was the best talk at the whole conference. I, of course, like to think so :). I posted a picture that my co-author (Lin) took of me during the presentation if you want proof that it happened.( photos)
If you’re bored and want to relive the talk, it is on my home page under “research” look for the stuff under the paper “Inferring High-Level Behavior from Low-Level Sensors” . (research page)
They are pretty big files. Anyway it went over really well, and I had a good time. Sandy really worked hard while I was at all these events and really had a great attitude. Tomorrow we’re going to zip off to the San Juan islands for a small vacation to celebrate everything being over and our 7th (!) anniversary.
Also, Wired wrote a short piece on the conference, no mention of me though:( article)
