PROJECT PAGE: http://handtracker.mpi-inf.mpg.de/projects/WatchSense/#materials It relies on a depth sensor that tracks movements of the thumb and index finger on and above the back of the hand. In this way, not only can smartwatches be controlled, but also smartphones, smart TVs and devices for augmented and virtual reality. They’re called the “Apple Watch Series 2″, “LG Watch”,…
Release: http://www.aalto.fi/en/current/news/2017-05-03-004/ Computers learn to understand humans better by modelling them 03.05.2017 Computers are able to learn to explain the behavior of individuals by tracking their glances and movements. Researchers from Aalto University, University of Birmingham and University of Oslo present results paving the way for computers to learn psychologically plausible models of individuals simply by…
Press release: http://www.aalto.fi/en/current/news/2017-04-05-002/ Project page: http://userinterfaces.aalto.fi/scatterplot_optimization/ Algorithms can now exploit models and measures of human perception to generate scatterplot designs. Picture represents scatterplot of pressure and temperature variables from the Hurricane Isabel dataset. The standard design (left) loses fidelity and requires manual adjustment, but the optimized design (right) automatically adapts to the data.
In the first week of February we have two distinguished speakers visiting University of Helsinki and Aalto University: Rosalind Picard from MIT Media Lab and Hans Gellersen from University of Lancester
