Multisensory Human Interaction

Dinesh K. Pai

Computer Science Department

Thursday, September 22, 2005
JEC 3117 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Refreshments at 3:30 p.m.


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 neuromuscular level.


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.
