Abstract : The acquired equipment from this award is used to enhance, an Immersive Virtual Reality Environment that enables us to efficiently interact with the real world around us or in our imagination. To this end, our research team investigates the use of artificial intelligence and visual computing. Numerous fields across the human-computer interaction and gaming research areas, form modeling to visualization, rely on the foundations within this cross-section of computing sciences. The projects for which the equipment is utilized serve in developing a potentially unique bridge at the intersection of two domains. On the one hand a significant amount of research has been invested in digital gaming and simulation to cognitively stimulate humans by computers, forming a $10.5B industry [1]. On the other hand, cognitive computing scientists and roboticists are engaged in developing computational models to enable computers and robots understand physical and cyber environments efficiently.
