Das Institut für Visual Computing lädt am 14. Juni zum Informatikkolloquium mit Dr. Gheorghita Ghinea von der Brunel University in London ein. Thema des Vortrags ist die Forschung im Bereich "MulSeMedia - Multiple Sensorial Media".
wann: Donnerstag, 14. Juni 2012, 15:00 Uhr
wo: voraussichtlich C 116
Traditionally, multimedia applications have primarily engaged two of the human senses, the audio and the visual, out of the five possible. With recent advances in computational technology, it is now possible to talk of applications that engage the other three senses, as well: tactile, olfaction, and gustatory. This integration leads to a paradigm shift away from the old multimedia towards the new MulSeMedia, multiple sensorial media. In his talk, Dr. Ghinea is going to focus on the issue of the perceptual experience of multimedia and how research in the area has opened new and sometimes challenging opportunities for MulSeMedia applications.
Dr. Gheorghita (George) Ghinea is a Reader in Computing in the School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics, at Brunel University.
Dr. Ghinea's research activities lie at the confluence of Computer Science, Media and Psychology. In particular, his work focuses on the area of perceptual multimedia quality and how one builds end-to-end communication systems incorporating user perceptual requirements. To this end, recognising the infotainment duality of multimedia, Dr. Ghinea proposed the Quality of Perception metric as a more complete characterisation of the human side of the multimedia perceptual experience. Dr. Ghinea has applied his expertise in areas such as eye-tracking, telemedicine, multi-modal interaction, and ubiquitous and mobile computing, leading a team of eight researchers in these areas. He has over 100 publications in his research field and was the lead editor of a book on Digital Multimedia Perception and Design. Currently, Dr. Ghinea has just finished editing a follow-up book on Multiple Sensorial Media Advances and Applications: New Developments in MulSeMedia. He consults regularly for both public and private institutions in his areas of expertise.
