What does living in a digital era really mean?
In this area, we explore how people and technology interact. MissInTech is a Voluntary Organization seeking to bridge the gender gap in the ICT sector. It introduces us to the greatest women in Science and Technology, of all time. Meanwhile, the Institute of Digital Games introduces a diverse range of activities, from Artificial Intelligence to Philosophy, and you get to try a game played with eye movement! The SPEECHIE project, on the other hand, showcases a toy that helps Maltese children with speech and language disorders, understand and use spoken language. Join our computational linguists (iLLT and ALLT) as they showcase how voice recognition and artificial intelligence are being used to figure out where a person is from, simply from the sound of their voice! If you fancy diving into virtual reality, you can visit the ICT students association and try your hand at being anything from a superhero to a virtual musician or artist. From altering DNA to how vaccines work! MBSA is once again making itself heard at SITC, bringing with it all the wonders of medical research. From genetic modification to the mechanism behind the spread of disease and the role of vaccines, is all explained is explained by the students of Medical Biochemistry.
