Welcome to the Ami Project’s blog

Welcome to the Ami Project’s blog.  Ami – the Chemist’s Amanuensis* – will prototype ways for scientists to have richer interactions with computers whilst they are working at the bench.  The project will use a variety of existing technologies such as speech recognition, touch screens, webcams, infrared detectors etc to help the scientist perform their experiments, collect their data, and record their activities.

* Amanuensis is defined as “A clerk, secretary or stenographer, or scribe; one employed to take dictation, or copy manuscripts”

The Ami Project is based in the Unilever Centre at the Department of Chemistry, Cambridge University.  The project is a 9-month effort, sponsored by JISC, and led by Peter Murray-Rust.
