New program joins computer science and design experts at UW, Tsinghua University
Health care? Environmental sustainability? Education? There's an app for that. At least there may be soon, thanks to a new collaboration between UW and Chinese students. The University of Washington this July and August hosted the first World Lab Summer Institute, which brings together computer science, human-computer interaction and design students from the UW and Beijing's Tsinghua University. Together they spent seven weeks developing ways that technology could be used to address global issues in health, environment and education.
