Format: Webcast

Awareness systems are an emerging class of technologies that enhance communication and connections between people in both business and social settings. MyUnity, a prototype awareness platform designed and developed at FXPAL for use in the workplace collects a myriad of data from a variety of sensors and sources, fuses the data into descriptive, easy to understand presence states, and presents this information to users in a novel interface available to users on their desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. The platform has been in continuous use within FXPAL for more than a year.
