Sensory Optimization: Technology for Augmenting Our Personal Environments
by Dr. Poppy Crum, Senior Scientist at Dolby Labs
Date: Friday April 25, 2014
Location: 35 W. 4th St. 6th Floor Conference Room
Our experience of the sensory world does not need to be constrained by our physical limitations. When navigating the environment our senses interact to perceive a robust non-veridical experience. Understanding these interactions and being able to define them perceptually and algorithmically allows technological developments that can facilitate sensory enhancement and optimization. Examples include use of targeted neuroplasticity to modify our internal experiences, wearable personalized technologies for sensory augmentation, and heightened virtual sensory experiences that elicit natural cross-modal percepts.
