演讲题目:User Interfaces for Collaborating in AR and VR 

演讲简介:With VR head-worn displays already successful consumer products and commercial AR head-worn displays soon to follow, interaction between multiple users is becoming increasingly important. A key issue here is how we can build 3D user interfaces that make it possible for people to collaborate more effectively, whether physically co-located or remote, at home or at work. To help address this, I will present research by the Columbia University Computer Graphics and User Interfaces Lab that explores the design and implementation of collaborative AR and VR environments. The experimental systems that I will discuss use different kinds of head-tracked eyewear and cover a wide range of task domains, from remote maintenance assistance, to urban visualization, to motor rehabilitation. All were developed with our open-source Mercury Messaging toolkit for Unity (https://github.com/ColumbiaCGUI/MercuryMessaging), which supports cross-component communication among scene objects within and between computers.

1993年获肯塔基大学博士学位,随后在美国大学任教7年,2000年受聘回国。上世纪在美国任教期间曾撰写英文专著《Get Real: A Philosophical Adventure in Virtual Reality》,被美国评论者认为“有可能在虚拟现实技术和哲学两个领域都成为里程碑性的著作”。该书中文版于2007年由北京大学出版社出版,深入讨论了信息技术通过虚拟现实(VR)和扩展现实(ER)对人类生活方式的颠覆性冲击,对虚拟现实和扩展现实发展趋势进行技术迭代预言并得到印证;己获2项有关虚拟现实技术的专利,其余多项申请已公布。他此前在中山大学设计建造的“虚拟与现实之间无缝穿越体验系统”达到世界领先水平,为虚拟现实与物联网的整合的技术路线与发展前景做出原型示范,已在国内国际产生广泛影响。他的学术影响,已从哲学领域迅速扩展到自然科学、社会科学、信息科学、新媒体艺术等领域。

演讲题目:“VR+物联网”的最优结合是扩展现实
演讲简介:我们试图建造物联网 (IOT) 把人造物甚至自然物的系统以有组织的方式进行电子信息标识和连接,同时接入互联网。以美国Second Life和中国HiPiHi为代表的虚拟世界平台,正在把全世界的人的身与心通过数码替身(Avatar)以实时受控三维形象的方式集结在一起进行前所未有的交流与创造性活动。除此之外,主从机器人、遥距微创手术等的研究发展,则为我们将操纵物理世界的感性直观界面接人虚拟世界的环境提供了现实的可能。将上述技术整合在一起,把虚拟世界与现实世界融为一体的扩展现实 (Expanded Reality) 就被建造出来了。要完成这样的一个整合,遥距操作的基本构架都有赖于传感装置在人与物的领域的覆盖性应用和计算机网络的云计算理念的全面实现。这里的传感技术,用于实时检测和操控的话,应该是双向互动的。一方面,计算机网络接收物体与人体的各种信息,另一方面,计算机网络还要把综合处理后的信息实时传向现场以驱动、操纵物体或引发刺激人体的信号。经过如此整合的人机互联互动系统,就能够允许我们完全沉浸在虚拟世界的环境里面进行各种维持基本生存和社会文化发展的实践活动。

演讲题目:Virtual Beings Inhabiting Our Real World

演讲简介:There is a long history of research supporting the importance of plausible congruent behaviors associated with virtual objects and people in Virtual Reality (VR). Many researchers are working on virtual humans that exhibit apparent intelligence, and some degree of awareness of the non-verbal behaviors of a real human. We also have been examining the effects of awareness and influence of virtual humans, primarily in Augmented Reality (AR) settings, to environmental effects such as sounds, real-world movement (felt and observed), light, air movement, and interactions with other real and virtual humans. The results indicate that, like VR, congruent and plausible behaviors in AR matter—virtual humans and objects should be responsive to real world events. However in practice it is much more difficult in AR, because unlike the case with VR—where the system controls (and therefore is aware of) everything, AR systems are typically unaware of dynamic real world events, and unable to affect the real world.

While most examples of autonomous awareness today are egocentric with respect to a head-worn display, the steady integration of Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities into every-day devices all around us presents an opportunity for the addition of more allocentric pervasive awareness and real world abilities to AR. In this talk I will discuss the nexus of IoT, AR, and intelligent virtual agents. I will discuss some ideas for application-specific embodied augmented reality agents (ARAs) with pervasive awareness, appearance, and abilities could be transformational. I will present some related novel experiments and results, and some ideas for the future convergence of our physical and virtual realities.。

演讲题目:Virtual heart - a basis for developing a wearable ECG imaging system for detecting origins of cardiac arrhythmias

演讲简介:cardiac arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation (AF) are the most common cardiac diseases causing morbidity, stroke and sudden death. It is believed that cardiac arrhythmias are associated with electrical storms presenting uncoordinated multiple excitation wavelets that desynchronized the mechanical contraction of the heart. Current treatment of AF may use RF ablation, but it is a challenge to locate the origin of the electrical storms for targeted ablation. Recent advances in bio-sensor engineering and biomedical sciences shed light to image the functional electrical activity non-invasively. In this talk, I shall review recent progresses in the development of virtual heart (eHeart) and multi-lead wearable ECG vest to image the electrical activity of the heart by a combined approach of solving forward and inverse problems.
