Come to see, touch, and learn about/or get updated on eye tracking. The speaker will cover the evolution and current state of eye-tracking technology; its broad uses, which include medical, usability, and market research; and predictions for the future with robots, cell phones, and other devices.

Perhaps the most important reason eye tracking will play an ever more crucial role in human computer interactions is that our eye activity is driven by subconscious processes in our brain. By providing insights into cognitive brain activity, monitoring eye movements has significant potential to help programs interact with people in a more natural way.
