The Computing Challenges of Mixed-Reality

Speaker:  Anthony Steed – London, United Kingdom
Topic(s):  Graphics and Computer-Aided Design


The broad area of mixed-reality (MR) systems, which include augmented reality, virtual reality and related real-time systems, poses new challenges to computing. In this talk, I will highlight some of the computing trends that have enabled current consumer systems, and highlight where requirements for future systems will take us. I will use our own work on ultra-low latency rendering hardware and low-latency networking to illustrate how the quality of the experience is affected by highly real-time machine performance. We will then take these results and extrapolate to describe potential systems that we do not yet know how to build and that will require new hardware and algorithms.
