Abstract

We are at the cusp of some far-reaching technological advances that will be of tremendous benefit to research. Within a few short years we will be able to test thousands of people from any demographic with 'connected' technology and get results that are just as good as those collected in labs. In this seminar, Dr Andy Woods will discuss on-web research versus those conducted in-lab, predict technological advances and discuss issues with online research. 

There will be various demonstrations during this seminar, including the running of a live study where we will collect data from hundreds of people online. Dr Andy Woods will also be bringing along various pieces of technology to showcase at this seminar which he believes will become part of our research tool-belts in the years to come.
