There are almost no limits to the potential of digital technology in the field of entertainment. Releasing all this potential will ultimately create robots who will be our friends, lovers and lifelong companions. The ACE Conference will help to push forward the frontiers of knowledge in this enormously exciting area of scientific research.

Adrian David Cheok as one of the Young Global Leaders at Yale University’s Jackson Institute which hosted The Forum on Young Global Leaders

From October 23-25, the Jackson Institute hosted the Forum on Young Global Leaders for a discussion entitled “Foundations for Leadership in the 21st Century: Global Issues.”

Talks include “On Globalization” with former Mexican President and Jackson-affiliated faculty member, Ernesto Zedillo, and former Argentinian Minister of Economy and Jackson Senior Fellow, Domingo Cavallo, as well as “Social Entrepreneurship” and “Negotiation and Strategy” with Sharon Oster and Barry Nalebuff from the Yale School of Management.

The Forum on Young Global Leaders convenes future leaders from all regions of the world representing business, government, civil society, arts and culture, and academia and media.

Professor Aleh Tsyvinski, a former Young Global Leader himself, and Jackson Director James Levinsohn hosted the event.

REMINDER: Papers Submission 15 June 2012
ACE 2012 is very excited to announce, the brilliant and eminent pioneer of computer chess, AI, and the cutting edge area of Love and Sex with Robots will be Keynote Speaker at ACE 2012 in Nepal. Make sure you are in Nepal to see what will be an amazing speech in an amazing location!

David Levy graduated from St. Andrews University, Scotland, in 1967, and then taught practical classes in computer programming at Glasgow University for four years, before moving into the world of business and professional chess playing and writing. He wrote more than thirty books on chess, won the Scottish Championship, and he was awarded the International Master title by FIDE, the World Chess Federation, in 1969. In 1968 David started a bet with four Artificial Intelligence professors that he would not lose a chess match against a computer program within ten years. He won that bet. Since 1977 David has been involved in the development of many chess playing and other programs for consumer electronic products. David’s interest in Artificial Intelligence expanded beyond computer games into other areas of AI, including human-computer conversation, and in 1997 he led the team that won the Loebner Prize competition in New York. His fiftieth book, Love and Sex with Robots, was published in November 2007, shortly after he was awarded a PhD by the University of Maastricht for his thesis entitled Intimate Relationships with Artificial Partners. David is President of the International Computer Games Association, and CEO of the London based company Intelligent Toys Ltd. His hobbies include classical music and playing poker.

ACE 2012 is pleased to announce a special arrangement for publication of all conference papers (and other categories). In the theme of “entertaining the whole world” all papers will be published in the ACM Computers in Entertainment (CiE) website to promote free knowledge dissemination and interactive comments from peers around the world. Although authors will need to sign a copyright form with ACM, the papers will be FREE for download without charge to anyone in the world. Please see the CiE website at http://cie.acm.org

A big step to bring augmented reality to the mass market

The Most Interesting Issues for the 21st Century Straddle the Boundaries of Existing Fields

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Below is a copy of the statement that will appear in the brochure of Keio University, Graduate School of Media Design. I would appreciate your feedback and comments.

Using Marshall McLuhan’s definition of media as an extension of man, interactive media includes all the various forms in which humans can extend our senses and brains into the world. It includes new technologies that allow us to facilitate this new communications, and to create natural and humanistic ways of interfacing with machines, as well as other people remotely over distances using the full range of human gestures such as touch, sight, sound, and even smell. Thus, new media includes new ways of communication between people, between cultures and races, between humans and machines, and between machines and machines. The vision of new media will bring about radical developments in every aspect of human lives in the form of new kinds of symbioses between humans and computers, new ways of communication between people, and new forms of social organization and interaction.

Traditional human communications has rich communication exchange using body gestures, the physical  environment, and touch. Humans use all the senses simultaneously for environmental sensing, and emotional feeling communication. In the hyperconnected digital era, we thus need to create fundamentally new forms of media to connect humans in the physical world through the virtual world, through meaning and nonverbal communication to increase the sense of telexistence using all the senses. This will allow more opportunities for people to make meaningful exchanges using media in both the physical and virtual world.
I wish to develop new technologies related to multimodal sensing and actuation to give the user more definition  in their augmented experience in the mixed reality environment. It is a field, which still presents great technical challenges.

To understand the new developments in media requires creativity and diversity in background and skills. Furthermore the most interesting problems in the 21st century are highly complex and are at the borders of disciplines. Therefore KMD is aptly placed to produce leaders in creative thinking for society.
