Abstract

We are moving towards a future where smartphones and desktop computing devices are complemented and potentially replaced by always-on head-mounted Mixed Reality devices. Such future systems will offer the ability to communicate with users by displaying nearly arbitrary contents. Besides visual content, however, auditory and multi-modal content will be key enabling factors for developing experiences that are beneficial for users. In this workshop, we hope to gather insights, knowledge and ideas into key considerations and novel concepts for future multi-modal Mixed Reality systems.

Biography

David Lindlbauer is an Assistant Professor at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where he leads the Augmented Perception Lab. His research focuses on creating and studying enabling technologies and computational approaches for adaptive user interfaces to increase the usability of AR and VR interfaces, with applications in casual interaction, productivity, health and robotics. Prior to joining CMU, David received his PhD from TU Berlin, advised by Prof. Marc Alexa, and was a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich. He has published more than 20 scientific papers at premier venues in Human-Computer Interaction such as ACM CHI and ACM UIST and was awarded the ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2018. His work has attracted media attention in outlets such as MIT Technology Review, Fast Company Design, and Shiropen Japan.
