This year's PhD Google Poster & Demo Competition was a great success, and was attended by both PhD students and those interested in their research.
On Wednesday 15th March 2017 the Department of Computing hosted the annual Google Poster & Demo Competition. The competition was open to all Department of Computing PhD students, who were encouraged to submit a poster demonstrating their research.
The competition itself was preceded by a talk given by a Google speaker on “Applied Research at Google”. There were also 4-5 Google engineers attending the event who helped judge the entries for the completion. As in previous years, there were three prizes on offer.
