Virtuality, Storytelling, and Self

D. Fox Harrell
Director, Imagination, Computation, and Expression Laboratory (ICE)
Professor of Digital Media & AI
The MIT Center for Advanced Virtuality (MIT Virtuality for short) pioneers innovative experiences using technologies of virtuality ? computing systems that construct imaginative experiences atop our physical world. Our approach to engineering and creative practices pushes the expressive potential of technologies of virtuality and simulates social and cognitive phenomena, while intrinsically considering their social and cultural impacts. This talk focuses on an important aspect of such technologies: virtual selves. Indeed nearly early everyone these days uses virtual identities, ranging from accounts for social media and online shopping to avatars in videogames or virtual reality. Given the widespread and growing use of such technologies, it is important to better understand their impacts and to establish innovative and best practices. In this talk, Harrell explores how our social identities are complicated by their intersection with extended reality technologies, videogames, social media, and related digital media forms. With an emphasis on equity, Harrell will explore how virtual identities both implement and transform persistent issues of class, gender, sex, race, ethnicity, and the dynamically construction social categories more generally.

High Resolution Tactile Sensing for HCI, Robotics and VR/AR

Wojciech Matusik
Esther and Harold E Edgerton Career Development Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Humans can feel, weigh and grasp diverse objects, and simultaneously infer their material properties while applying the right amount of force?a challenging set of tasks for a modern robot. Mechanoreceptor networks that provide sensory feedback and enable the dexterity of the human grasp remain difficult to replicate in robots. Although computer-vision-based robot grasping strategies have progressed substantially, there are as yet no equivalent sensing platforms and large-scale datasets with which to probe the use of the tactile information that humans rely on when grasping objects.

Challenges and opportunities in robotics: from self driving cars to the micro- and nano-scale?

John Leonard
Samuel C Collins Professor of Mechanical and Ocean Engineering
Associate Head for Research, Mechanical Engineering
Co-Director, Ford-MIT Alliance
MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering
We will briefly describe some of the challenges and opportunities in autonomous robotics, with a focus on self-driving cars. Some of the major challenges in include high-resolution 3D mapping, fusing data from multiple types of sensors, and achieving robust decision-making with uncertain perception data. We will also present some thoughts on applying some of the techniques used in self-driving, such as simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), to micro- and nano-scale environments.

Immersive Sound and the Curvature of Social Space-Time: Using Spatial Audio for Learning, Art, and Democracy

Ian Condry
Professor of Japanese Cultural Studies
MIT Anthropology
What if, instead of screens on our heads, we imagined immersive experiences in terms of 360-degree sound in open spaces? How can developments in spatial audio transform our understandings of sound, learning and democracy? How can we learn from the sociality of musical experiences to deepen our approaches to education, research, and the arts?

Egyptian Blue: the Antiquity-inspired Innovation

Admir Masic
Esther and Harold E. Edgerton Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering
In the first century BCE, Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius described how to produce the first artificial pigment known as Egyptian blue. Recently discovered optical properties of Egyptian blue point towards alternative applications in the various fields such as biomedicine, sensing, solar energy, nanotech, etc. This talk weaves together history, engineering, science, and modern technologies, to describe how we can harness remarkable properties associated with light scattering and durability of the Egyptian blue in the design of modern solutions. I will also describe current work on virtual representations of historical objects through augmented reality.

Photo-Chromeleon: Re-Programmable Multi-Color Textures Using Photochromic Dyes

Michael Wessely
Postdoctoral Associate at HCI Engineering Group
CSAIL, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
In this talk, I present a method to create re-programmable multi-color textures that are made from a single material only. The key idea builds on the use of photochromic inks that can switch their appearance from transparent to colored when exposed to light of a certain wavelength. By mixing cyan, magenta, and yellow (CMY) photochromic dyes into a single solution and leveraging the different absorption spectra of each dye, we can control each color channel in the solution separately. Our approach can transform single-material fabrication techniques, such as coating, into high-resolution multi-color processes.

I discuss the material mixing procedure, modifications to the light source, and the algorithm to control each color channel. I then show the results from an experiment in which we evaluated the available color space and the resolution of our textures. Finally, I demonstrate our user interface that allows users to transfer virtual textures onto physical objects and show a range of application examples.
