  报告摘要:

  Virtual Reality (VR) is exciting because it can immerse or “fool” humans into a new dimension of virtual world. This has been achieved partly because of technology but largely due to our brains. We eagerly try to visualize a new dimension when we experience VR. Humans’ sensory systems are constantly “guessing” what we “see” and “hear”. Understanding how our brains “see” 3D images and “hear” 3D sound is the focus of our research laboratory. We call this “Computational Ergonomics”. We conduct experiments with brain imaging tools to understand how human “guess” what we “see” and what we “hear”. Then we develop computing algorithms to model, simulate and finally predict what humans “see” and “hear”. Knowledge obtained are useful not only in the field of VR, but in robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and assistive technology such as hearing-aids. Examples will be used to illustrate the results of fundamental scientific research on visually induced motion sensation (VIMS), mass-customization of 3D binaural sound effects, accommodation/ convergence conflict, sense of tele-presence and audio noise suppression.
