Assistant Professor November 1998—present
In the National University of Singapore, I am conducting an extremely active research program, as well as being highly committed and successful in both undergraduate teaching and postgraduate supervision (I have am currently supervising 13 Masters and 1 PhD students).
Furthermore, I have attracted a large amount of externally attracted funding as well as internal university funding.
Although my research is multi-disciplinary and wide-ranging, it is following a main research vision and goal that I have had from the beginning of my studies and career: to create new human-computer and human-cybernetic systems that will improve our lives and create new and seemingly amazing possibilities in human society. I foresee a future where computers interact with people in a totally natural and human-like manner.
In order to follow this vision, I have followed a few main related research tracks in human-computer interfaces and interaction, including information multi-media that augments human and cybernetic intelligence, with a focus on how this can improve creativity. I have also had a focus on real time computer image and vision processing and intelligent information processing such as fuzzy and neural systems which are beneficial to human computer interaction.
In order to follow this vision, I have followed a few main related research tracks, which, although they may seem quite separate, are in fact interrelated to my research goals. These research tracks and their purpose are:
1. Human-Computer Interface and Interaction using Mixed reality and Information Media: The focus of this work is augmented human intelligence and creativity using mixed reality and information media. Included in this work is advanced real time image processing techniques, which allow this human computer interaction to occur.
Using mixed reality the digital world can to be extended into the user’s physical world. This is made possible through the use of head-mounted see through displays where the user’s real-world view can be overlaid with 3D computer graphics, text, video, audio and speech.
We are bringing developing new systems to implement mixed reality in order to develop an almost magical environment where the virtual world, such as 3D computer graphics images and animations are merged with the real world as seamlessly as possible in real time. For example architects could work on a realistic virtual 3D model on their desk, and then enter the model together to explore the inside of the virtual buildings, surgeons could “see” the inside of a patients body before operating, children could see animals from exotic lands, and play with them in their real physical space, and people could play games with each other together with virtual characters or creatures that appear in their real environment.
The mixed reality project will allow humans to interact with each other in ways that now can only be imagined in movies or television, and will allow humans to interact with computers in a way that goes beyond the desktop computers we have now. It will allow us to create a mystical world that man has never experienced before. There will be applications in a great variety of areas such as education, entertainment computing, architecture, military, medicine, and human welfare.
Some of the projects which are under investigation include:
• Live 3D Mixed Reality: Using real time image processing techniques, capturing live 3D viewpoints of humans to have a live 3D interaction in mixed reality. This will have exciting applications in entertainment, training, and simulation. With this technology, the observer sees the real world from his viewpoint, but modified so that the image of a live captured human is rendered into the scene. This is believed to be the first demonstration of interaction in virtual environments with a live fully 3-D collaborator. In this system we can have live interaction between users in the real world and collaborators in a virtual space, using a tangible mixed reality interface.
• Touch Space: Creating a new and unique creative information media space which provides the full spectrum of interaction experience ranging from the real physical environment (human to human and human to physical world interaction), to augmented reality, to the virtual environment. Furthermore it allows seamless commutation and communication between all three environments, including seamless transitions between augmented reality (AR) world and virtual reality (VR) world. It allows tangible interactions between people and virtual objects, and collaborations between people in different levels of reality. Thus, the system re-invigorates computer media systems with social human-to-human and human-to-physical touch interactions.
• 3D Sound Music and Dance for Human Creativity: Mixed reality interaction may be extended beyond visual information. Sound is an important source of information in our physical world, and thus it can also be a very important digital information source in the digital world. In the audio mixed reality environment, we can place virtual sounds as if they were emanating from particular 3D points in physical space.
In this research we also design and implement a novel intuitive computer music interface system as a tangible music instrument device. Current music instrument systems need one to spend a long time for training and being a specialist in them. The aim of this project is to design computer human interfaces for music systems based on human feelings of music embodied in actions such as dance. To furnish this goal, at first we recognize the dancer’s action by tracking his/her body movement and then a music note will be related to each predefined action. Therefore everybody not only enjoy playing music in an intuitive way but also he/she can express his/her feelings as sound with out any special training.
• Magic Music Desk: A Multi-Modal Embodied Interactive Desk In this project, we described a novel multi-modal multi-user audio-visual interface - the Magic Music Desk (MMD) which employs the principles of embodied interaction, and emphasizes social interaction between users. We developed a novel combination of multiple modalities for the interfaces using speech recognition, hand gesture recognition, sound and visual mixed reality technologies. A new mode of interaction which is called as "What You Say is What You See" (WYSWYS) is demonstrated in our system. This interaction enables all users to visualize each others spoken words as 3D objects which could be seen by multi-users (this also allows multi-cultural social interaction).
• Real Time Image Processing for Augmented Reality: Camera Motion Tracking from Natural Features
For three-dimensional (3-D) Augmented Reality (AR) applications, accurate measurements of the 6 d.o.f camera pose (i.e. position and orientation) relative to the real world are required for the proper registration of virtual objects. Currently, we are developing a robust framework and algorithm for measuring camera pose accurately by tracking natural point features in the scene alone. Camera pose relative to the reference frames is computed through the minimization of a simple cost function based on two-view epipolar and three-view constraints on feature position. Time-series information is used to provide the starting point for this minimization and to regularize the error surface when the incoming data is impoverished.
• Natural Feature Tracking for augmented reality.
The idea is to replace fiducial markers such as those used by ARToolkit with purely natural features. We are developing a system based on robust-real time estimation of homographies between images to introduce information into the scene. Applications of this system include geographical labelling, and an augmented noticeboard. We have also used related code to develop a simple 3-DOF optical tracking system for use in virtual reality. We are working on a separate system which attempts to solve the complete 6 DOF tracking problem for arbitrary scenes. This is based on the minimization of two- and 3-view constraints.
2. Wearable computers and smart spaces: the integration of the above research areas will allow the development of tiny wearable computers, that can be worn on the human, as well as be ubiquitously embedded into the environment into smart spaces. These should be able to interact in a natural manner using soft computing and multi-modal speech recognition. Furthermore this platform will allow an exciting new human-computer interaction to develop in conjunction with mixed reality, where virtual objects and characters can be seamlessly integrated into the real world.
There are two applications making use of the wearable computer technology that have been developed, with the main purpose of augmented human creativity, namely the Game City and the Interactive Theater. The Game City is a novel wearable computer interaction and entertainment system which provides an interactive physical and mixed reality computer environment that spans large areas with multi-users, and can be extended to a whole city. It is an embodied (ubiquitous, tangible, and social) wearable computing based mixed reality (MR) game space which regains the social aspects of traditional game plays whilst also maintaining the exciting fantasy features of traditional computer entertainment. Concept of system is summarized in the figure below:
The Interactive Theater, on the other hand, is based on an embodied mixed reality space and wearable computers. Embodied computing mixed reality space integrates ubiquitous computing, tangible interaction and social computing within a mixed reality space, which enables intuitive interaction with physical world and virtual world. It has potential advantages to support novel interactive theater experiences. Therefore, the novel interactive theater experience supported in the embodied mixed reality space is explored, and live 3D characters to interact with user in such a system are implemented.
3. Fuzzy systems and soft computing: in order to embed human linguistic type reasoning and biological types of learning to increase the man-machine system intelligence quotient and enable computers to understand and learn complex real-world environments.
4. Hardware - real time dsp and cpu, embedded systems, and power electronics: in order to implement human-computer systems that will have an impact, real time hardware issues and robustness are critical. Real time computer interaction requires examination of hardware and software issues in dsp and cpu platforms. Furthermore, embedded hardware and sensors will provide the framework for ubiquitous computing. This also extends to the power electronic aspects that are required for motion and control.
This work is also being developed to support the wearable computer projects by providing alternative power supplies that provided power from human body motion and hydrogen gas / fuel cell supplies.
5. Personal Area Network: The concept of Personal Area Network (PAN) is presented to demonstrate how two unconnected wearable electronic devices could exchange digital information when the users who wear them come close or in physical skin contact with each other. It is based on the principle of near-field sensing, which uses human body as wire and can operate on several milliwatts of power. As compared to far-field radio communication, near-field sensing does not suffer from eavesdropping and interference, and hence data security is assured. The PAN communication channels are the human body and "earth ground", which includes all conductors and dielectrics in the environment that are in close proximity.
6. Speech and multi-modal recognition: A critical factor in the future generations of human-computer systems will be the achievement of natural interaction. Part of this is the ability to recognize and understand speech and natural language. However, as in humans, the computer should recognize the multi-modal nature of speech (audio and visual).
