SWiTCH and MARL Present: Sensory Optimization – Technology for Augmenting Our Personal Environments

New York University’s Society of Women in Technology (SWiTCH)

Sensory Optimization: Technology for Augmenting Our Personal Environments
by Dr. Poppy Crum, Senior Scientist at Dolby Labs

Date: Friday April 25, 2014
Location: 35 W. 4th St. 6th Floor Conference Room
Time: 4PM

Our experience of the sensory world does not need to be constrained by  our physical limitations. When navigating the environment our senses  interact to perceive a robust non-veridical experience. Understanding  these interactions and being able to define them perceptually and  algorithmically allows technological developments that can facilitate  sensory enhancement and optimization. Examples include use of targeted neuroplasticity to modify our internal experiences, wearable personalized technologies for sensory augmentation, and  heightened virtual sensory experiences that elicit natural cross-modal percepts.

NYU Grad Swagg R’celious Hits #17 on Mediabase

The song “Amazing”, written and produced by our very own NYU graduate David “Swagg R’celious” Harris (MM ’10) for Gospel artist Livre, recently reached #17 on the Mediabase Gospel Charts. It has now been on the Top Charts for 2 weeks according to the Mediabase Charts, and seems to be continuing to climb.
