Shinichi Furuya @ Symposium on Interaction with Technologies for Human Augmentation

Shinichi Furuya , the neuroscientist in Sony labs who also doubles as a pianist .. telling us about the ceiling effect and sustainable development of skills .. for example you can train fingers to play faster AND the other untrained hand automatically moves as well! The exoskeleton training can overcome the ceiling effect!

Elisabeth André telling us about a system that helps visually impaired people to get tactile feedback when they fixate on something to help them get an experience closer to seeing .. and another system that gives you audio cues whether it’s a good idea to engage in social interactions or not in a large unknown group of people .. another system to train children with autism to do do movements using a tandem virtual character

Max Mühlhäuser keynote @ Symposium on Interaction with Technologies for Human Augmentation

Max Mühlhäuser telling us about the main issues in doing 3D virtual interactions: Error prone, static and privacy violating .. check the project MEX if you are interested in the domain.. also check Meta’s vs. Google’s interests in the virtual spectrum.

Asa Ito tells us we are not only controlled by our consciousness. The paradox in skill acquisition: what does it mean for a body to be able to do what it could not do?
