Student demos

I have been attending the UIST (User Interface Software and Technology) conference, which is entirely virtual and on-line this year. I was just now attending the breakout rooms where students at various universities are showing their latest research demos.

In one breakout room the students showed their current work, and then explained what they intended to do for future work. I realized that the future approach they were describing could not work, because it would be mechanically unstable.

So I told them a better way to do it, talking it through with them step by step. The students thanked me, and I left the breakout room.

So now I am wondering — am I a collaborator?
