  1. Research to understand how we Infer 2D-cross sections from 3D shapes published in Human Factors journal

    Understanding 2D cross-sections of 3D structures is important in medical imaging, biology, geology, art, architecture, physics and engineering. If you’ve ever had an MRI, your radiologist understood 3D spatial information from the 2D image slices that make up that medical imaging.  Identifying and orienting the correct 2D cross-section of a 3D object is a complex set of spatial/visualization skills. In our collaboration with Dr. Anahita Sanadaji (Ohio University), Dr. Cindy Grimm (Oregon...
  2. Shared gaze in co-present XR affects embodied information behavior – Read the Paper

    Some real-world impact created at xREZ this year: the Innovation Research Methods class, taught by xREZ Director Ruth West in our lab, resulted in a paper published in Imaging Journal and presented at the Engineering Reality of Virtual Reality 2022 conference. The grad students also collaborated with renowned embodied information behavior experts Dr. Christopher Lueg and Dr. Michel Twidale from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign iSchool. Our interdisciplinary classes bring together students...

  4. AI, Arts, & Design: Questioning Learning Machines (Artnodes No. 26)

    We are pleased to announce the publication of Artnodes issue No. 26 co-edited by Ruth West and Andres Burbano! Read the full issue for FREE here: https://artnodes.uoc.edu/206/volume/0/issue/26/ Explorations of the relationship between Artificial Intelligence (AI), the arts, and design have existed throughout the historical development of AI. We are currently witnessing exponential growth in the application of Machine Learning (ML) and AI in all domains of art (visual, sonic, performing, spatial, transmedia,...
  5. xREZ VR Arena Research Published and Presented at ERVR 2020

    How can we design a more fluid attendee experience for VR in high-traffic public settings? That’s the question the xREZ team working on user experience in virtual reality addresses in our new paper titled, “Designing a VR Arena: Integrating Virtual Environments and Physical Spaces for Social Sensorial Data-Driven Experiences” is published in the Journal of Electronic Imaging ( https://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/ist/ei/pre-prints/content-ei2020-ervr-360 ). Our research has also been presented at the Engineering Reality of Virtual...
