Apple sponsored the ACM Human-Computer Interaction conference (CHI), which was held as a hybrid virtual and in person conference from April 23 - 28 in Hamburg, Germany.
All CHI attendees were invited to stop by the Apple booth to experience our demo in person and to chat with available recruiters and booth staff.
Below was the schedule of Apple sponsored workshops and events at CHI 2023.

Intelligent Interactions on Apple Devices
In this demo, we aim to illustrate two of our user facing intelligent interactions on device, Always-On Display and Assistive Touch. Always-On Display enables millions of users to make their iPhones more personal and unique while allowing them to get instant access to important information, like the weather, game scores, music controls, battery state, and time. This feature relies on the Bluetooth connection between the watch and the phone, and the model tracks the distance between the phone and the user with Bluetooth Received Signal Strength Indicator or RSSI.
AssistiveTouch and Hand Gestures allows users to access the display, activate the Digital Crown, trigger the side button, and perform other actions, all without touching the Apple Watch itself. It uses on-device machine learning to check out how your muscles and tendons are moving, with the help of the watch's accelerometer, gyroscope, and optical heart rate sensor.
All CHI attendees were invited to stop by the Apple booth to experience this demo in person.
