The Cognitive and Immersive Systems Lab
The Cognitive and Immersive Systems Lab (CISL) is a collaboration between Rensselaer and IBM Research for the research and development of immersive cognitive systems. The core platform of CISL is the Cognitive Immersive Room (also called “Situations Room”), an immersive, interactive, reconfigurable physical environment. The future Situations Room will be able to augment group intelligence and performance by perceiving and understanding human intention in group activities, participating in learning and decision-making tasks, and communicating insight and discovery to humans. The domains investigated for the Situations Room include cognitive and immersive learning, corporate decision-making, cyber-enabled exploration and discovery, and intelligence analysis.
In this presentation, Director Hui Su will introduce the vision of CISL, the progress made by the CISL team in a few technical areas, and several technical demonstrations such as an occupant-aware cognitive environment enabled with multimodal interactions, cognitive and immersive environments for language teaching and decision making, and immersive narrative generation.
