Our paper entitled “Engaging Community College Students in Emerging Human-Machine Interfaces Research through Design and Implementation of a Mobile Application for Gesture Recognition” won the Best Diversity Paper Award at the American Society for Engineering Education Zone IV Conference (ASEE-ZONE IV 2018), Boulder, CO, March 2018.
The paper describes the ASPIRES engineering research internship program the School of Engineering at SFSU coordinated with Cañada College, bringing five community college students (Kattia Chang-Kam, Karina Abad, Ricardo Colin, Charles Tolentino, and Cameron Malloy) into the ICE Lab for 10 weeks in summer 2017.
Under the mentorship of Dr. Zhang and the graduate student mentor Alex David, the interns developed and tested a mobile application for recognizing human gestures and gained valuable research experience. The interns also did a great job presenting the project at the ASEE-ZONE IV conference. Congratulations!
