The seminar will expand on this view, with supporting information from experience gained at HP Laboratories.
HP Laboratories are embarking on a major endeavor to pursue th view. The seminar will outline our view --and a taxonomy -- of some of the issues involved, and highlights some of the research opportunities that it presents. We are actively seeking research partners to collaborate with us.
