Towards Interactive 3D Visualization: The Role of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality in Scientific Visualization

Come learn about new 3D visualization and augmented reality tools for your research! Summer opportunities are also available for undergraduate students.

In this one-hour seminar on virtual reality, Wole Oyekoya, PhD, Hunter College and The Graduate Ceneter, CUNY, will be presenting talk titled:

Towards Interactive 3D Visualization: The Role of Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality in Scientific Visualization.”

Abstract: In research laboratories around the world, Immersive 3D Visualization is playing a key role in the scientific analysis and discovery. Scientific Visualization is the art of representing scientific data in a way that allows researchers to gain keen insight into complex data sets, thereby enabling them to see the expected and discover the unexpected in their data. Paraview, VisIt and VMD are open-source scientific visualization applications that enables users to visualize high-performance computing (HPC) simulations. These applications support multiple data formats across different domains. We are aiming to enable interactive and immersive visualization by introducing the ability to analyze and visualize large scientific datasets at interactive speeds as it is being computed (Interactive Supercomputing). This visualization challenge has been brought about largely due to the growth of supercomputers and the amount of data that is being computed. This talk will present prior and current work in visualizing scientific data in Virtual and Augmented Reality systems, as well as future plans to leverage the GPU power of A100 GPUs to enable immersive and interactive scientific visualization.

Bio: Assoc. Prof. Wole Oyekoya leads the Visualization and Virtual Reality Lab. He is an Associate Professor at Hunter College, City University of New York (CUNY) and a member of the Doctoral Faculty of CUNY Graduate Center (CUNY’s Ph.D. Program in Computer Science). He obtained his PhD in 2007 at University College London, where he worked on using eye tracking data for Content Based Image Retrieval. Prior to his appointment at CUNY, he worked in the Visualization Groups of the Research Computing divisions of Virginia Tech and Clemson University. He was also a post-doctoral scholar at University College London. Currently, he is a guest associate editor of Frontiers in Virtual Reality journal. He is also a recipient of funding from the National Science Foundation, Adobe Digital Marketing Research Award and PSC CUNY Research Award. His research expertise and interests include Immersive Scientific Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Telepresence, Eye Tracking and Visual Attention Modeling.

This event will take place in the ASRC 1st floor seminar room. To locate the room, please follow lobby signage directing you to the right of the side of the 1st floor.
