Two Demos Showcased at ACM SenSys’19

Two demos developed in the lab were presented at ACM SenSys’19 in New York City, NY, in November 2019.

A demo led by Joseph DeChicchis, titled Adaptive AR Visual Output Security Using Reinforcement Learning Trained Policies, demonstrates how reinforcement learning-based policies for hologram positioning perform on Magic Leap One augmented reality sets. This demo builds on the work on learning for hologram positioning in AR led by Surin Ahn, previously evaluated via simulations alone. Joseph’s trip to present this demo at ACM SenSys was partially supported by an ACM SIGMOBILE Travel Grant and by a Duke University Undergraduate Research Office Travel Grant.

Joseph demonstrating how a reinforcement learning-trained policy can move holograms out of the way of a stop sign.

Additionally, a demo led by Jovan Stojkovic, Zida Liu, and Guohao Lan, titled Edge Assisted Collaborative Image Recognition for Augmented Reality, presents a dynamic approach for handling heterogeneous multi-user visual inputs for image recognition in augmented reality, demonstrated on an edge computing-assisted Google ARCore platform.
