DFP noon-time forums occur twice a month and feature guest speakers from other universities, industries, and communities both locally and globally. These talks focus on human computer interaction as well as technology design. Discussions range from the abstract to the concrete, from big data to clinical robots, and everything in-between. These forums offer an excellent opportunity for researchers to connect and for ideas to be shared. They also draw real connections between the research that is done in the cluster and their real-life applications outside of the university.
