App Development - Entrepreneurial Opportunity

July 27, 2016

The goal is to develop an Uber-like app on which a client can request a car wash from their smartphone, with the car wash coming to them. After the requisition has been submitted along with the address, the app will seek out the closest unit to the location in order to complete the request. The payment will be made when the washing has been completed. The client may also be able to rate the service. The best way to spread the word will be by doing an excellent service of washing. At the same time making our customers feel comfortable with us.

Payment is in the form of a share of the revenue, which is negotiable.

The Digital/Experimental Media Lab is looking for a few new members to work on some exciting projects at the intersections of art, science and technology. These are technically complex new media art projects requiring skills typically found among those in computer science, engineering and the biological sciences.
We are offering a GRA position that will be about 10 hours a week with a competitive salary and at least a partial tuition waiver.
Currently, we are in need of someone with machine learning, computer vision and computer graphics skills to work as a GRA on some biology/machine learning-based interactive art projects. One project involves gathering sensor/motion data from a colony of nematodes and sending it to a virtual (computer generated) bacterial environment. Another involves using motion and gesture recognition to communicate with a fish. C/C++/C# programming required as well as knowledge of machine learning and computer vision. Experience writing drivers for usb video cameras a plus.
We should be able to get something published at the EvoMUSART (Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired Music, Sound, Art and Design) conference: http://www.evostar.org/2017/cfp_evomusart.php
And maybe publish and/or exhibit something at ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art): http://isea2017.info
And of course Leonardo journal: http://leonardo.info/
I am also open to having a few undergraduate or graduate students interested in obtaining independent study credit, particularly if you have computer graphics, programming, electronics and robotics/mechatronics skills.
Other projects we will be working on that may be of interest include interactive digital artworks dealing with ecology, environmental sensing, bioenergy technologies and mobile augmented reality. You can contribute to this work while simultaneously pursuing your own research agenda in one or more of these areas.
If you are interested in assisting on these projects please contact me at ccatellanos@ksu.edu and we can discuss details.
