About This PhD Project

Project Description

The University’s "immersive demonstration space" provides surround video and sound in a meeting-room environment. This research project is to determine how best to enhance and use the space to support collaborative design and creativity. We want to augment intellectual work along the continuum from solitary activity to rich collaboration. People will be able to move from absorbed concentration on their own work, through to interaction of various kinds that allow ideas/data/knowledge to be shared in planned, concentrated, long, short, serendipitous, or fleeting transactions. We expect that the walls/screens will change only occasionally and that sounds will be subtle and localised. Individuals working on personal devices (e.g. laptops and phones) might "project" their screens onto the walls of the space on demand and have facilities for merging views from different people. The environment might monitor what people are doing and suggest possible connections which are then visualised on the walls. The design of such an environment involves sensing, communications, pattern analysis, HCI and organisational behaviour. It is likely that the research will be conducted in collaboration with others in the University’s HCI group.
