Cognitive and Immersive Systems Lab (CISL)

Speaker: Dr. Hui Su, Director
Cognitive and Immersive Systems Lab (CISL)
IBM Watson Research Center
Cambridge, MA

January 31, 2017, 4:00 pm
Location: EMPAC, Studio 2
Hosted By: Dr. Chuck Stewart (x6731)


With the great progress made in the areas of Cognitive Computing and Human-scale Sensory Research, the paradigm of human computer interaction will be a collaboration between human beings and intelligent machines through a human-scale and immersive experience. What research challenges exist today to enable this new paradigm, how it will help human beings (especially groups of people), what transformation it will bring to us, are all important to us. In this talk, Dr. Su is going to introduce the vision of future Cognitive and Immersive Situations Room - an immersive, interactive, intelligent physical environment, and the research agenda to realize the vision.


Dr. Hui Su is the Director of Cognitive and Immersive Systems Lab, a collaboration between IBM Research and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He has been a technical leader and an executive at IBM Research. Most recently, he was the Director of IBM Cambridge Research Lab in Cambridge, MA and was responsible for a broad scope of global missions in IBM Research, including Cognitive User Experience, Center for Innovation in Visual Analytics and Center for Social Business. As a technical leader and a researcher for 20 years at IBM Research, Dr. Su has been an expert in multiple areas ranging from Human Computer Interaction, Cloud Computing, Visual Analytics, and Neural Network Algorithms for Image Recognition etc. As an executive, he has been leading research labs and research teams in the US and China.
