Harris Hall, Gin D. Wong Auditorium
The 21st century has inspiring new tools for fabrication, design and production that facilitate the creation of 3-D models and prototypes across all disciplines. This technology can speed up the process of innovation and learning through the rapid and accurate actualization of 3-D graphics.
Join USC's Visions & Voices program on Wednesday, October 7, 2009 in the Gin D. Wong Auditorium of Harris Hall for a dynamic discussion with Dr. Zoz Brooks of the Discovery Channel’s Prototype This. Brooks will discuss innovative and exciting uses of prototyping.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion featuring: Marty Doscher, IT/CAD manager at Morphosis and Trojan Alum; Scott Easley, Assistant Director of USC's Gamepipe Laboratory; Mark Ganter, University of Washington 3-D graphics and Mechanical Engineering Professor; and, Behrokh Khoshnevis, USC Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering and Director of the Manufacturing Engineering Program in the Viterbi School.
Note: Neil Leach, Visiting Professor of Architecture at USC, spoke in place of Professor Khoshnevis, and shared images from his own work on design as well as Professor Khoshnevis' work on robotic building systems.
