Research Impact through Technology Transfer

Title:  Research Impact through Technology Transfer
Date:  13th May, 2016
Time:  9:00am - 11:30am
Venue: Dewan Kuliah Utama, Fakulti Sains Komputer dan Teknologi Maklumat, UPM

Abstract:
Increasingly academics are being asked to demonstrate the impact of their research. In the UK, we have a periodic Research Excellent Framework which determines a core part of our funding. Our ranking in REF depends on not only the quality of research, but its long-term impact. In this talk, I will discuss some of the types of impact of the work in the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics. I will discuss use several case studies of the type of collaboration we have had with external partners, and how we have transferred technology into real use.

The Limits of Virtual Reality

Title: The Limits of Virtual Reality
Date: 11th May, 2016
Time: 2:30pm - 4:00pm

Abstract:n the past couple of years virtual reality has become a consumer technology. The user experience of being immersed inside a computer simulation is novel for many people; certainly a lot of media interest and investment has been raised. However, the core technologies of virtual reality have been around for several decades. In this talk, I will summarise the state of the art of consumer virtual reality, and then describe a broad set of work around research prototypes that highlight potential features of next-generation consumer virtual reality. In particular, I will describe the limits of virtual reality: types of sensory display and simulation that are currently not tractable. By exploring these limits we will discover some of the grand challenges for virtual reality and by extension, for computer science and human-computer interaction in general
