Currently, CITRIS has awarded approximately $2 million inseed grants on all four campuses. These projects will help fulfillthe CITRIS mission of creating societal-based research through collaborationsacross the CITRIS campuses.
UC Santa Cruz
Proximity to Silicon Valley makes UC Santa Cruz a natural place to engage the world’s industrial leaders and put new technology solutions to work. CITRIS Santa Cruz explores the design of new systems for immersive video and augmented reality, intelligent media for social good, and exploring the intersection of computing approaches from artificial intelligence, computer graphics, and software engineering with art and design. Creating new forms of interactive media with autonomous, generative, and dynamic responses to interaction has broad applications to fields from education, health, and entertainment to security and safety.
CITRIS Santa Cruz also examines the societal impact of CPS and IoT. Just as desktop computers and personal computing became commonplace decades ago, consumers are now acclimating to the idea that the objects they handle, the media they use, and the services they employ to process information are embedded with intelligence to improve everyday life.
