Presented by SGInnovate and EmTech Asia. In Support Of: Innovators Under 35
After five editions Innovators Under 35 Asia Pacific is back in Singapore to showcase the work of the most remarkable entrepreneurs and researchers from Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong SAR and Taiwan. Since its creation in 2014, the Asia Pacific community has been growing exponentially, always pursuing the same objective: to award innovation, ingenuity, and advances towards addressing the world’s most pressing challenges. As we call for nominations for the 2019 class of young innovators, let us celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship with an inspiring talk by visionary mixed reality pioneer and Innovators Under 35 Asia Pacific judge, Prof Adrian David Cheok. Come to this gathering and find out more on how you can be nominated or nominate others for this prestigious award.
Everysense Everywhere Human Communication – This talk outlines new facilities that are arising in the hyperconnected internet era within human media spaces. This allows new embodied interaction between humans, species, and computation both socially and physically, with the aim of novel interactive communication and entertainment. Humans can develop new types of communication environments using all the senses, including touch, taste, and smell, which can increase support for multi-person multi-modal interaction and remote presence. In this talk, we present an alternative ubiquitous computing environment and space based on an integrated design of real and virtual worlds. We discuss some different research prototype systems for interactive communication, culture, and play.
