To celebrate the remodelling of the lab space and our new space sharing with the Virtual Worlds team, we held a reception on Wednesday September 2nd.

Wine, cheese, some good conversation and a ribbon cutting moment by the Dean of Science made for a very interesting late afternoon. Thanks all for coming!

SACHI team race to victory at go-karting night

This week, the University of St Andrews SACHI team, from its School of Computer Science, had a fantastic evening of go-karting at ScotKart in Dundee on Tuesday, followed by a celebratory dinner at the Duke pub to refuel on awesome burgers.

The SACHI team trophy was appropriately 3D printed by hand by Miguel Nacenta, and is set to become a team heirloom for events to come. On the track, the team demonstrated that their skills in human-machine interaction are just as good as their expertise in human-computer interaction!
