A full Medialogy session at AES 49 International Conference on Audio for Games

At this years Audio Engineering Society 49th International Conference on Audio for Games, there was a whole session about “Perception of Interactive Audio” involving only Medialogy projects. The Papers that were presented were both from students, PhD students and professors associated with Medialogy CPH:

“Can Interactive Procedural Audio Affect the Motorical Behaviour of Players in Computer Games with Motion Controllers?”
by Niels Bøttcher

“Preliminary Investigation of Self-reported Emotional Responses to Approaching and Receding Footstep Sounds in a Virtual Reality Context”
by Erik Sikström, Niels Christian Nilsson, Rolf Nordahl, and Stefania Serafin

“Auditory Feedback to Improve Navigation in a Maze Game”
by Kevin Dahlstrøm, Nicolai Gajhede, Søren K. Jacobsen, Nicklas S. Jakobsen, Søren Lang, Magnus L. Rasmussen, Erik Sikstrom and Stefania Serafin

“Rhythm-Action Games: The sonic interaction perspective”

Research Seminar Thursday by Dr. Purwins

Tomorrow Thursday the 7th of Feb from 12-13:00 in Frederikskaj 10A, room 2.164 Dr. Purwins will give a seminar titled: Audio-visual Time Series Analysis: Experiments, Computational Analysis, & Cognitive Models
In this talk, I will give a rough  overview of my past work and ongoing preliminary work, highlighting a couple of cases:
1) EEG for Musical Brain-Computer Interface, and for the assessment of 3D television technology;
2) Audio-visual dictionary learning and cognitive and generative modeling.
In 3D cinema, the brain has to compensate the dissociation between accommodation and vergence (the simultaneous movement of both eyes in opposite directions to obtain or maintain single binocular vision), and has to suppress the accommodation reflex in a sudden change of perceived depth. I will present neural signatures for stress induced by sudden depth changes when viewing films in 3D television/cinema (ongoing work). Then I will introduce a statistical cognitively inspired model that learns the rhythmical structure of percussion sequences from an audio example in an unsupervised manner, providing a representation that can be used for modeling musical expectation and the generation of stylistically similar and musically interesting variations. Basing real-time human-computer interaction on cognitively plausible principles makes such a system smarter and more reactive to user actions during interaction/improvisation/performance. Finally, I will discuss possible avenues for future research.

Volvo visits Multimodal Experience Lab

Senior Vice President, R&D, Volvo Cars Peter Mertens visited on January 28th the Multimodal Experience Lab, together with representatives from Volvo Denmark and campus head Lene Lange. The tour included a demonstration of a haptic chair for Volvo cars by Master student Stefano Trento and a demo of the Volvo Intelligent News by 7th semester students Allan Koudal, Michael Rosendahl, Jannik Jepsen and Jóhannes Ingi Árnason. The Volvo delegation was extremely impressed by the results achieved by the students in one semester.
