In May, Professor Smolic was invited to present a keynote speech at the 10th International Conference on Quality of Multimedia Experience (QoMEX 2018) in Sardinia, Italy, titled Content Creation for AR, VR, and Free Viewpoint Video.
Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are among most important technology trends these days. Major industry players make huge investments, vibrant activity can be observed in the start-up scene and academia. The elements of the ecosystem seem mature enough for broad adoption and success. However, availability of compelling content can become a limiting factor. This talk will address this content gap for AR/VR, and present solutions developed by the V-SENSE team, i.e. 3D reconstruction of dynamic real world scenes and their interactive visualization in AR/VR.
