How we interface and interact with computing and entertainment devices is on the verge of a revolutionary transformation, with natural user inputs based on touch, gesture, and voice replacing or augmenting the use of traditional interfaces based on the mouse, remote controls, and joysticks. With the rapid advances in natural sensing technologies, we are endowing the devices with the abilities to see, hear, feel, and understand us and the physical world. In this talk, we will present and demonstrate Intel® RealSense Technology, which is enabling a new class of interactive and immersive applications based on embedded real-time 3D visual sensing. We will also take a peek at the future of multimodal sensing and interactions.

Further Information:

Dr. Achin Bhowmik leads the research, development, and productization of advanced computing solutions based on natural interactions, intuitive interfaces, and immersive experiences, recently branded as Intel® RealSense Technology. Previously, he served as the chief of staff of the personal computing group, Intel’s largest business unit. Prior to that, he led the advanced video and display technology group, responsible for developing multimedia processing architecture for Intel’s computing products. His prior work includes liquid-crystal-on-silicon microdisplay technology and integrated optoelectronic devices.

As an adjunct and guest professor, he has taught graduate-level courses on advanced sensing and human-computer interactions, computer vision, and display technologies at the University of California, Berkeley, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, and University of California, Santa Cruz Extension. He has >150 publications, including two books, titled “Interactive Displays: Natural Human-Interface Technologies” and “Mobile Displays: Technology & Applications”, and 27 issued patents. He is an associate editor for the Journal of the Society for Information Display. He is the vice president of the Society for Information Display (SID), Americas, and a senior member of the IEEE. He is on the board of directors for OpenCV, the organization behind the open source computer vision library.
