From Bloomberg and Lampix, The Future of Work

 

In partnership with Bloomberg and Lampix, NYC Media Lab will present a fellowship opportunity for current NYC graduate students working in design and engineering. The fellowship will support a rapid prototyping process, in which fellows will create live demonstrations using augmented reality technology (AR). The goal is to use AR to improve the business office setting, considering the following areas of exploration:

  • Team collaboration
  • Reduction of workflow friction
  • Document processing
  • Data analysis
  • Display and markup of digital documents

This fellowship seeks creative technologists who are comfortable with pushing the boundaries of physical and digital interfaces with a data-driven user in mind.

Sign up to attend the information session for this fellowship. The session will take place on March 1 from 9:30-10:30am at NYU ITP at 721 Broadway, 4th Floor.
