University of Toronto’s ‘KMDI’ Gale Moore visits

Gale Moore is the Deputy-Director of the Knowledge Media Design Institute, an organization of over 50 faculty members from 20 different academic departments in the University of Toronto with a mission similar to KMi. Gale spoke about some of the work in KMDI including a demonstration of the Virtual Sandbox, a collaborative project with Xerox PARC.

“KMDI’s mission is research and graduate education in the knowledge media arts and sciences. We design, develop, use, and study novel knowledge media, apply them to the creation and dissemination of knowledge, and seek to understand their implications for individuals, for organizations, and for society.”
