HyperRealitIE '14

Workshop on Hyperrealistic Intelligent Environments 2014
30th June. Shanghai, China


Hyperreality tries to achieve a vision in which virtuality and reality are seamlessly blended as if they were one, with no distinction on where one ends and the other begins, blending physical reality with virtual reality and human intelligence with artificial intelligence[1].

Virtual and augmented reality are used daily as standalone applications in areas such as computer gaming and mobile devices. Companies such as Google, Nokia and Microsoft are investing in and developing technology and interfaces to connect the virtual and real worlds. This creates enormous opportunities for integration and research with intelligent environments. Intelligent Environments are physical spaces where context-aware technology is embedded in a seamless way to create interactive spaces, bridging computation with the physical world. This workshop focuses on innovation ideas for future ‘Next Generation’ Intelligent Environments, where virtual applications and data allow users to further integrate themselves within augmented physical spaces. By exploring this area, we aim to encourage further research and advances in Intelligent Environments by bringing together researchers and industry.
