Recent News and News Highlights

8/26/2022: Two of lab’s papers will be presented at IEEE ISMAR’22 (acceptance rate: 21%): “NeuroLens: Augmented Reality-based Contextual Guidance through Surgical Tool Tracking in Neurosurgery,” led by PhD student Sarah Eom, and “Integrated Design of Augmented Reality Spaces Using Virtual Environments,” led by PhD student Scargill. [ More information ]

8/20/2022: Members of the I3T Lab presented 3 posters and welcomed visitors on a lab tour during Athena AI Institute‘s 1st Annual Summit. [ More information ]

8/19/2022: We are delighted to be supported by NASA via a Phase I STTR project led by Nanohmics, Inc, titled “Demonstration of Space-Qualified Environmental Evaluation Drones with Wireless Intelligent Networked Data Processing (SPEEDWINDs).

6/7/2022: Sarah Eom presented her ongoing work on augmented reality for retinal laser therapy at the Duke Eye Center for Duke Ophthalmology Scientific Session. Joint work with Miroslav Pajic (Duke ECE) and Majda Hadziahmetovic (Duke Ophthalmology).

5/4/2022: Lab’s work is presented at 3 different sessions of CPS-IoT Week this week, IEEE/ACM IPSN’22 paper, CPHS’22 workshop paper, and IPSN’22 demo: blog post. This week we are also presenting a paper and a demo at IEEE INFOCOM’22: blog post.

5/3/2022: Congratulations to Ashley Kwon, a former undergraduate researcher in the lab, who will be joining Brown University’s CS PhD program this Fall. Ashley has been affiliated with the lab for 1.5 years, and has coauthored our recent IEEE INFOCOM’22 paper and an associated dataset. Congratulations and best wishes, Ashley! [INFOCOM’22 paper PDF] [Code and data]

4/26/2022: Congratulations to Alex Hu for receiving the Spring 2022 ECE Independent Study Best Poster Award! Alex has been affiliated with the I3T Lab since Spring 2021. Jointly with his mentor Tim Scargill, he has been exploring a range of topics related to eye tracking for augmented reality. His work has incorporated both AR system development and user studies Alex has designed and conducted. Congratulations, Alex! [ Blog post ]

3/05/2022: A fun line of work from our lab has developed an approach for synthesizing eye movement data for training eye movement-based activity classifiers via publicly available text, image, and video sources, without human involvement. It is described in a paper titled “EyeSyn: Psychology-inspired Eye Movement Synthesis for Gaze-based Activity Recognition,” which is appearing at IEEE/ACM IPSN’22.
