This is the fifth seminar in a series of 6 talks on Sustainable Good Life and Technology by Prof. Singh.
Resources needed for traveling the path of any sustainable journey consist of knowledge, infrastructure, ability, energy, mindfulness, and optimism. Technology has made great contributions to knowledge, infrastructure, and energy. What sort of new devices and applications will provide the other resources? Can sensors cheer us up when we are down? Help us release stress? Can sensors nudge us if we are losing light of our journey?
Jasprit Singh (UM Professor, EECS and Applied Physics) explores using semiconductors for technologies that form the basis of The Knowledge Age. His additional research interests blend technology and ideas from yoga to explore new designs and practices intended to answer the question, How can the intersection of best lessons in technology and yoga reduce the gap between knowledge and action? The answers would lead towards practices and technologies that enhance mindfulness.
