IT Masterclass Series Talk

On July 13th afternoon, a group of DISM students attended the Masterclass Series talks. The Infocomm Technology Masterclass Series is a collection of seminars from 13 July to 27 July 2011, during which top industry practitioners and university professors share and present on their areas of expertise.

These seminars are organised for students of Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM), Diploma in Business Information Technology (DBIT) and Diploma in Information Technology (DIT), so that not only can students learn about the latest information relevant to their course of study, but they would also be able to benefit from a broadened vision and perspective.

DISM students listening attentively.

The two talks conducted were "Computer Vs Human Brain" by Professor Pramod Kumar Meher from School of Computer Engineering in Nanyang Technological University and "Windows Phone 7 Development" by Chris Ismael who is a Developer Evangelist in Microsoft Singapore.

About "Computer Vs Human Brain" seminar:
Although similarities between the computer and the human brain exist, they are different in several respects. This talk discusses the similarities and differences between the computer and the human brain, as well as how one of the two is superior to the other.

To learn about the cool new features of Windows Phone 7 Mango, as well as to see examples on how you can integrate it with the Kinect Sensor. The session is particularly useful for budding mobile developers who have little or no background on WP7 development.
