Ever been frustrated about how long it takes for your Netflix episode to buffer or how blurry the resolution of your YouTube video is? A team of computer science researchers at Stanford think they can ameliorate video-streaming standards.
Kristen Powers ’16 first screened Twitch: The Documentary at Parents’ Weekend in 2014. She has now taken it on tour to four different continents and is planning to screen it in Australia in the fall. Her documentary tells the story of the loss of her mother to Huntington’s disease and her decision later on to get genetic testing. She is a leader for the Huntington’s Outreach Project for Education and is deeply involved in promoting awareness for Huntington’s disease.
Powers’ film, Twitch: The Documentary, came to completion last year and focuses on her decision to get genetic testing for Huntington’s Disease for herself and the long-term consequences that come with receiving a positive or negative result.
On Friday evening, Kristen Powers ’16 held a “sneak peak” screening of her documentary, “Twitch,” in Annenberg Auditorium, in an event attended by close to 100 people.
