SS-13: Vision Science SIG Symposium: Augmented and Virtual Reality for Vision Science
Friday, October 25 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM
In addition to being a powerful tool for gaming and entertainment, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) hold promise as exciting tools for learning more about the visual system, helping us function in the everyday world, and potentially assisting patients with visual and cognitive disorders. While it is now possible to use AR/VR to explore new research directions beyond those that could be accomplished using traditional psychophysical techniques, current AR/VR instruments also pose challenges associated with vision, human and engineering factors. The goals of this session will be to discuss some of these challenges and present current research and technological advances in AR/VR. Invited speakers from academia and industry will present their work and provide their perspectives on visual, human, and engineering factors to consider when developing and using AR/VR, as well as new opportunities for its application to the visual system. The moderator is Jason Porter, PhD, FAAO, FARVO, and the speakers include Martin S. Banks, PhD, Ben D. Sawyer, PhD, Marina Zannoli, PhD, and David Luebke, PhD.
