In June, I officially graduated from the University of Calgary with my Master of Science degree in Computer Science.
A few seconds followed by a walk across a stage caps off over two years of research and hard work.
One highlight of my time in academia the media exposure received by my emotional robot control project, leading to dozens of blog posts and articles around the world, and a live television interview on Breakfast Television Calgary.
I’d finally like to also share some photos from an iLab party shortly after my defence in January.
My time in the Interactions Labs broadened my interests and changed my view of the world more than I imagined it could have. So much has changed in my life since I flew into Alberta for the first for a tour of the university in April 2008. I am grateful for the experience.
