 Hello Computer
Speaker: Niall McLaughlin
Not really an abstract but here's some ideas. I'm nearing the end of my PhD now, so I could probably give a talk on some of my research. I don't know if would be as interesting to other people as to me...
During my PhD I've been working on robust biometrics - speaker recognition that's robust to substantial background noise and facial recognition, robust to severe lighting variation. While my research itself is probably not suitable for a general audience, I could give a talk on the generalities of how, for example, facial recognition works - hopefully without getting bogged down into too much maths!
