Kick-off meeting

We're going to hit the ground running in this first Meetup!

6:30PM - 7:00PM - Networking

7:00PM - 8:00PM - Introduction to the group, where we're headed, what we're planning.

Presentation: Getting To Know NUI

Lots of people sorta/kinda know what NUI is, some know more than others, some are novices ready to learn. This presentation will delve into the different areas of NUI that go way beyond voice commands and gesture. We'll talk about where NUI is today and where it's heading in the near future, how it will impact UX (user experience) and what it means for developers, marketers, and brands.

Battle of the COMMANDS!

Two NUI Central visionaries will battle it out in a fight to the end,
pitting iOS against Android in a Siri vs. Google Voice Search voice command battle.


Who has a better vocabulary? Who's faster? Who will win? Be there to witness this epic battle!

8:00 - 8:30PM Odds and Ends, Wrap Up, More Networking

To get to WeWork Labs: As you're facing 175 Varick Street look to your left and you'll see Charlton Street. The entrance to WeWork is on Charlton Street. You'll enter through a black door that says WeWork on it, go straight up several steps and go through another door. Then, you'll see the elevators to your left. Go to the 4th floor. The Meetup sign in desk will be right there as you exit the elevator.

    Good intro to NUI. It was wise to do an intro / overview so we all start out as close to the same page as possible. Thank you for the refreshments, much needed due to the timing of the meetup.

    Thanks to Deb and Ken for the kick-off meeting and getting the group off the ground. Diverse group at the first meeting. Ken's presentation was a nice overview of NUI and, hopefully, helped to focus those unfamiliar with the domain.

    Interesting presentation, but little actionable info; few attendees had as much to contribute as to learn.

    Caught a cold -- really wish I could attend. Next time!

    This looks like the best group I'm planning to attend this month; I just got thrown out of the Lotico Semantic Web NYC group by the organizer who thought I wanted his job. Would you believe the venue he picked was BLOOMBERG - the conference room location
    was known as "GermanY" (ughtct!!!)

    Any member active in educational applications for interactive teaching/learning?

      I am considering, and fairly along toward agreeing to a partnership in a product for interactive education of a sort. I'm limited in detail I can give, as I'm under NDA, but I'd liek to discuss the topic in general.

      I would meet you at my club, 27 W 44th near 5th, but would want to speak with you first. My cell[masked]

    What are some of the locations under consideration? I am based in Hoboken, so proximity to the Port Authority (8th Ave midtown) or the PATH line (up 6th ave passing 9th, 14th, 23rd, 33rd) is most convenient, (or, of course, Hoboken :) ). I can get elsewhere, but I thought I'd throw in my prefs.

      Good areas for me are near Grand Central, Times Square, Union Square or Columbus Circle. Financial District works well, too. But I'll try to make it, wherever it is.
