MediaFutures Seminar: Augment the Vision: To Help Users Deal with Different Domain Tasks. PhD Candidate, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.
June 15 @ 12:00 - 13:00
Yuchong Zhang, PhD candidate at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, will give a seminar on 15 June, at 12:00.
One of the cutting-edge techniques—augmented reality (AR) (a variation of virtual reality (VR)), in which virtual objects are superimposed in the real world–has been demonstrated and applied in numerous fields due to its capability of providing interactive interfaces of visualized digital content. Moreover, AR can provide functional tools that support users undertaking domain-related tasks, especially facilitating them in data visualization and interaction because of its ability to jointly augment the physical space and the user’s perception. How to fully use the advantages of AR technique, especially the items which augment human vision to help users with different domain tasks’ perform is the central part of my PhD research.
Yuchong Zhang is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. His research interests include augmented reality, interactive visualization and human-centred design. He received his MSc. degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2017.
