Continuous Delivery – the quest for the Holy Grail by Diana Lidén
This is about the journey we are making to reach the holy grail of today’s software companies – continuously delivery. This journey has challenged us greatly and resulted in changes concerning technology, processes, roles and also our own personal growth. I will take you through our adventures on the quest to break the monolith and change the way we think and do.

First WiTech Tech Talk of the fall
Zeynep Yücel is an assistant professor at Okayama University, and will be giving a talk about her work (joint attention modeling, head pose and gaze direction estimation, and motion tracking) and her experience as a woman in tech at the first WiTech “tech-talk” of the fall
When? August 20th at 17.30-19.30
Where? To be decided
Design of social interaction robots is a very challenging research problem, which is very far from being solved considering the current state of artificial intelligence systems. In this talk, we will limit ourselves to two particular cases. One case relates a plain interaction scenario between a robot and a human particularly from a joint attention point of view. Another case relates a more complex scenario where the robot is employed in a public space. In this kind of setting, the robot is required to act in a socially acceptable way both while moving alone and as part of a pedestrian group. To this end, we will discuss the development of group motion models and recognition algorithms.
