HMT Collaborator Interviewed for Ars Technica's Coolest Jobs in IT

Ryan Bauman, a researcher at the University of Kentucky's Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments, has been interviewed by Ars Technica for their series on the Coolest Jobs in IT. In the article Bauman discusses his work on the Homer Multitext Project, including multispectral and 3-D imaging of ancient manuscripts. He talks about how gratifying it is to do research that benefits both humanists and computer scientists at the same time: "The most interesting part is finding research questions that touch on both sides," he said. "Finding something that a humanities scholar is interested in that we can help them answer using some kind of digital approach that is also challenging enough on the digital side that it pushes computer science forward as well."
