This project aims to reduce the barriers present in grandchild-grandparent communication by developing a messaging tool which encourages users to exchange tidbits from each of their lives, cultures, and generations. Additionally, this tool can be used by users who are hard of hearing or who have a language barrier.
In an increasingly global and competitive business landscape, firms must collaborate and partner with other firms to ensure survival, growth, and innovation. Understanding the evolutionary composition of a firm's relationship portfolio and the underlying formation strategy is a difficult task given the multi¬dimensional, temporal nature of the data.
Our research examines the role that low-cost virtual reality technology could play in supporting learning in low-resource contexts. Specifically, we propose to study the potential of creating affordable virtual reality-based learning experiences for children in these contexts. There has been a rising penetration of low-cost mobile technologies and internet connectivity in under-resourced communities, and this motivates us to explore the feasibility of virtual reality as a medium to enhance learning experiences for low-resource contexts.
