This is a seminar in media arts and technology. The seminar will consist of talks by experts in various areas of media arts, multimedia systems, media technology, and related areas of research and practice. There will be a mix of speakers, from UCSB and from outside, with a variety of backgrounds, including computer science, engineering, art, and music. Occasionally we will schedule discussion or brainstorming sessions instead of a talk.
