Augmented Reality: From Gaming to Cognitive Aids and Beyond (11:05AM - 12:20PM)
Augmented reality—the overlay of contextually-relevant digital information onto the real world—has captivated our imaginations both in fiction and in practice. In recent years we have seen everything from excitement and concern over the potential of worn displays such as Google Glass to the convergence of hordes of Pokemon-catching smartphone users in public parks and spaces. In this panel, we look forward, exploring how the sensing and sensory display technologies of augmented reality can empower individuals and communities.

Moderator: Blair MacIntyre, Professor, Georgia Tech School of Interactive Computing; Director, Augmented Environments Lab
PanelistsFred Brooks (1999 Turing laureate), Peter Lee, Yvonne Rogers, and Ivan Sutherland (1988 Turing laureate)
