Gateway Event - Modelling Visibility: How can geographic data support more natural human-computer interfaces?

Date: 
Fri, 22/02/2019 - 14:15 to 15:30
Location: 
Robotarium seminar room, Heriot Watt University
Speaker: 
Dr Phil Bartie

Abstract: Situated human-computer interactions rely on a shared understanding of the surrounding environment. For example an instruction to an autonomous vehicle to drop you off at a particular building entrance on campus relies on your mental model of geographic space correlating to a digital representation of that space stored in the navigation system.
