The Virginia Tech Center for Human-Computer Interactions was one of five institutions nationwide to receive the Microsoft HoloLens Academic Research Grant Award, including $100,000 and two Hololens Development Edition devices. The winning submission, titled "Collaborative Analysis of Large-scale Mixed Reality Data" was awarded to PI Joseph Gabbard (an Associate Professor of Human Factors, ISE @ VT) and Co-PI Doug Bowman (Professor of CS), with support from several faculty in the Center for Human-Computer Interaction's 3DExperiences group. The funded research will investigate multi-user visualization of, and interaction with, big datasets in collaborative mixed reality environments. The research is inspired by large physical spaces (e.g., museums) that allow users to stand around large objects in expansive spaces, each with individual points of view, but with common ground and the ability to understand what others are looking at and talking about.
