Provost’s Annual Review celebrates the work of V-SENSE SFI Research Professor of Creative Technologies, Professor Smolic

Professor Aljosa Smolic, the inaugural SFI Research Professor of Creative Technologies in Trinity’s School of Computer Science and Statistics, is talking about his cutting-edge research and how he and his team are contributing to the next big thing in technology.
