Terror struck Manchester, U.K., Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert, as a suicide bomber killed at least 22 and injured many more.

Animators, computer scientists and sign language experts in the College of Computing and Digital Media have teamed up to create Paula, an avatar who translates written and spoken words for the deaf by signing. "You would think it would be easier, with all the amazing animation in movies," says Rosalee Wolfe, professor of human-computer interaction. "But once a movie is made, it's frozen in time. The avatar must respond to the immediate situation. You can't just make an animated phrase book," Wolfe tells The Hechinger Report.

Locate Yourself and Connect to the World!

Our technologies today allow us to be more connected than ever, but it frequently seems just as easy to feel, somehow, disconnected and to forget how our lives intersect with other people and living beings on our streets, in our cities, on this continent, and around the world. In this workshop we'll explore these intersections, as we utilize principles of mindfulness and a geographic perspective to connect our bodies and ourselves to what surrounds us both near and far.
