    Media Technology



Additional Information:

    Media technology is a new research field that is only recently gaining legitimacy and widespread recognition as an intellectual domain. The field can be described as the convergence of the areas of computing, communications and information. Systems that result from research in this field are the synthesis of these into new forms of interaction, learning, creative expression and entertainment. A theme of much work is either the merger of the creative users of media with its developers, or the notion of building direct, intuitive interfaces to information systems, or the more general goal of making computer systems that enhance human creativity. Underlying technologies that form the basis for the field include sound and image processing, innovations in the human interface to computing systems and research in human cognitive processing. This panel explores current work in the field.
