Designing the front-end of a tool that facilitates bypassing censorship on Sina Weibo
Like traditional media, social media in China is subject to censorship. However, in limited cases, activists have employed homophones of censored keywords to avoid detection by keyword matching algorithms. This project focusses on designing an interactive, client-side tool that promotes free speech. An iterative design process, involving the inputs of end-users will deliver a final design. In the evaluation of the design we will target the following research question: Does the UI workflow fit into context of use of the users?
Argon is a mobile web browser designed to bridge the gap between Augmented Reality and The Web. Following in the tradition of web browsers like Chrome and Firefox, which differentiate themselves by providing custom functionality that is not yet standardized across all browsers, Argon exposes the core technologies needed to make AR possible. By making computer vision tracking (via the Qualcomm's Vuforia library) available to web pages, Argon provides a browser-based platform for rapid development of fully-interactive 2D/3D AR content & applications.
How might we create confidence and increase communication to riders of a public transportation system? This project is focusing on creating an interactive display and experience for riders of the Georgia Tech Bus system.
