Assistant Professor Amy Huber recently gave two presentations at this year’s Autodesk University in Las Vegas, NV. The AU conference convenes each year, hosting over 10,000 industry innovators from architecture and design, engineering and construction, and film and media. With a less than 30% acceptance rate the conference seeks experts to share innovative approaches that leverage technology to either “design, build, make, or create.” Her first presentation was a hands-on lab focused on material hacks for photorealistic renderings, and the second was an industry talk focused on pedagogical strategies to enhance motivation and exploration in the technology classroom.
While there, Huber participated in workshops and sessions on topics including: machine learning, making, virtual and augmented reality, data management during the design and construction process, and generative design. For more information visit: http://au.autodesk.com/.
