Humans experience the world by sensorimotor interaction. They can
exploit all available senses, including vision, touch, and hearing.
Therefore, human interfaces should provide correlated multisensory
information that is both realistic and responsive to interaction. I
will first describe how we can construct such multisensory
environments with integrated graphics, haptics, and sounds. I will
discuss efficient computational models for interactive simulation, and
how these models could be acquired from real world measurements using
robots. Finally, if time permits, I will briefly describe our recent
efforts in constructing physical models of human interaction at the
Dinesh K. Pai is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at
Rutgers University. Previously, he was a Professor at the University
of British Columbia and a fellow of the BC Advanced Systems Institute.
He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. His
research interests span the areas of graphics, robotics, multisensory
human interaction, and the neural control of movement.
