Talk by Mr Foad Hamidi

Bachelors in Computer Applications students of Royal Thimphu College had an opportunity to listen to the talk by Mr Foad Hamidi. He is currently pursuing his PhD Computer Science specializing in Human-Computer Interactions. His thesis title is "Digital Tangible Games for speech Intervention". He has masters in Computer Science specializing in Human-Computer Interactions from York University in Toronto. 

It was an opportunity and an adventure to listen to him about his numerous publications and research works. He currently works for Thimphu Techpark as an adviser. His interest lies in the fields of researches and human-computer interactions. He said that the technology-oriented people must think in the better ways to help disadvantaged people who also wishes to use the technology like all of us. Moreover, he hobby lingers in designing and artworks. Wherever he travels he tries to learn something new and tries to implement it in a simpler manner so that each and every citizen of this world can enjoy it.

The crowd was annoyed when he explained and shows his design of the prayer wheel-like thing. He designed in such a way that there is a chip inserted in it, whereby when a number of it is being turned by number of people, some affect will be displayed by the computer.

The crowed loved the way when he talked about the 3D printing that is happening in the world. He showed the group that even a car being printed by the 3D printer in advanced factories of the world. Moreover, some sections of the crowd wondered if it could also print anything we want. 

The theme of his presentation was "Technology and Happiness". He explained that the technology may be in any kinds but it must make us happy. He said it must also help people to reduce the task force. The crowd could not imagine when he said that the plant can even ask for the water via email/sms after having tied a sensor with a chip on it.

The talk was wonderful, so I thank this opportunity to be the best one for the IT students of the college. Moreover, it wan an opportunity to explore ourselves outside the classroom theories.
