Connect 4 Challenge

Oct 20 2015 Posted: 16:00 CDT

As part of the recent Undergraduate NUI Galway Open Days the Discipline of Information Technology hosted a very successful interactive IT Interactive Zone. Visitors were challenged to a game of Connect 4 where their opponent was an AI controlled robot. There were large queues throughout the day for the opportunity to experience stepping inside a virtual world wearing an Oculus Rift headset. Visitors experienced an immersive 3D environment that removes the boundaries of traditional screens.

Kevin Jennings, a 6th year student from Garbally College, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway who was a participant at the IT Interactive Zone is pictured here with Dr. Michael Madden, Head of Information Technology(right) and Dr. Des Chambers, Programme Director Programme Director of B.Sc.
