Bits, Bytes and Blood

Speaker:  Nigel W John – Chester, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Applied Computing


This talk explores the role of computer graphics and related technologies (such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality) in supporting some of the latest products to be used in hospitals: from education and training; procedure rehearsal; surgical guidance; and rehabilitation applications. An overview of some of these areas will be given, illustrated by projects that I have been involved in during the last 20 years. Much has changed since the time when a Silicon Graphics workstation was needed for any real time graphics, to the present day where affordable devices such as the HTC/VIVE and Microsoft Hololens offer new and exciting possibilities. I will highlight the most active research areas where good opportunities exist to gain project funding for research or commercialisation of ideas.
