Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Multisensory Remote Interaction
at the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo
Application deadline: 28.2.2022
Remote communication shapes our lives by allowing us to study, work and
entertain ourselves remotely. The majority of our remote experience,
however, consist of audiovisual communication or interaction in virtual
worlds. True physical actions in remote environments are still a major
challenge. Acting remotely in an intuitive and natural manner feels
neither fluid, smooth nor accurate and we cannot experience the effects
of interactions using our natural senses.
We explore remote interaction from network support to human perception.
The successful applicant is expected to push the boundaries of
multimodal remote interaction with multisensory feedback to create more
immersive experiences. The core of the work is the exploration of
personalized action and feedback prediction that relies on machine
learning to hide the delays that remain in an otherwise optimized
distributed system. Experimental studies are used to explore the human
tolerance to the delay and accuracy of actions and feedback.
The fellowship is a full-time position with a duration of four years.
