Science Ka Adda:Peeping into the Future with Emerging Technology by T2F


These past two decades have witnessed dramatic changes in the working and thinking styles for individuals in arts, design, emerging interactive technologies, animation, and the motion picture industry. Individuals in a highly collaborative, technical and creative environment of computer graphics have modified their visual thinking because of the availability of new digital tools. This transformation of thinking approaches can easily be seen in various disciplines, even in non-digital domains. There is a need for new ways to access creative and technical brains to pipeline original thoughts; with a systematic approach for inter and cross-disciplinary transfer of knowledge.
