Speaker: Dick Bulterman, chief executive officer at FX Palo Alto Laboratory, Palo Alto, CA, U.S.A.

Abstract: The Fuji-Xerox (FX) Palo Alto Laboratory is an advanced R&D institute in the heart of Silicon Valley. Formed 20 years ago and modelled on Xerox PARC, the lab provides a forward-looking research arm for FX in Japan. This talk will survey FXPAL's current range of projects in three domains: Collaboration Tools; Social, Enterprise and Personal Media; and Sensor and Location-Based Systems. Examples of work in each of these areas will be given. FX's model for technology transfer will also be discussed. The goal of the talk is to (re)introduce FXPAL's activities in multimedia and human-computer interaction.
