Expressive 3D Modeling: User-centered models for seamless creation through gestures — Marie-Paule Cani (University of Grenoble INP – Ensimag)

Despite our great expressive skills, we humans lack an easy way of conveying the 3D shapes we imagine, even more so for dynamic shapes that change over time. Over centuries we relied on drawing and sculpture to convey shapes. However, these tools require significant expertise and time investment, especially when one aims to describe complex or dynamic shapes. With the advent of virtual environments one would expect digital modeling to replace these traditional tools. Unfortunately, conventional techniques in the area have failed, since even trained computer artists still create with traditional media and only use the computer to reproduce already designed content.

Could digital media be turned into a tool, even more expressive and simpler to use than a pen, to convey and refine both static and dynamic 3D shapes? This would make shape design directly possible in virtual form, from early drafting to progressive refinement and finalization of an idea. To this end, models for shape and motion need to be redefined from a user-centered perspective, and in particular embed the necessary knowledge to make them respond in an intuitive way to users actions. In this talk, I will illustrate this methodology in three use cases: the creation of 3D models from 2D sketches, transfer operations that automatically adapt objects to another context, and virtual sculpture systems enabling to progressively edit and refine 3D content.

Supporting Software Learnability via Online Resources and Communities — Andrea Bunt (University of Manitoba)

Feature-rich software applications, such as Photoshop and AutoCad, are both powerful and notoriously difficult for users to master. While there is no shortage software-specific learning resources available online, these resources are not always easy for users to locate, assess and apply. In this talk I will discuss some of my research group's past and ongoing work on improving the accessibility and utility of online software learning resources. I will also discuss some of the challenges that we have faced in designing and evaluating tools to support software learning and highlight promising opportunities for further research in this space.

Towards Making Convincing Virtual Environments a Reality — Elmar Eismann (TU Delft)

The field of Computer Graphics has seen tremendous developments and recent years brought us closer to reproducing reality. Nonetheless, when comparing to the real world, the difference can be striking, especially, for real-time rendering. In this talk, we will examine techniques towards increasing the realism of virtual environments. Our focus will lie on volumetric representations as they are very general and able to encode highly-detailed scenes. While they  tend to suffer from high memory demands, we will show that recent algorithms help us to overcome this hurdle. Furthermore, such representations are interesting for efficient light-transport computations and we will even cover real-time solutions for the simulation of participating media. The latter are particularly challenging to simulate and predicting the appearance of the rendered result is even difficult for experts. This latter point is particularly problematic when computer-graphics solutions are used by artists. To this extent, we present intuitive interfaces to design and influence the scene appearance. Our presentation will cover several techniques to bring us one step closer to making convincing virtual environments a reality.

Designing for Curiosity — Edith Law (University of Waterloo)

Curiosity is a well-studied phenomenon in the field of psychology, and a major motivational driver in education, commerce and science. At the core, curiosity is about the acquisition of information driven by the desire "to know, to see, or to experience." For example, one contemporary psychological model of curiosity – Loewenstein's information gap theory – says that people are curious when they are made aware of the gap in their knowledge, and engage in exploratory, information-seeking behavior in order to complete their knowledge and resolve uncertainty. The theory predicts that curiosity is heightened when the information gap is small but not absent, that curiosity can be induced by violated expectations, exacerbated when one is asked to make guesses about some unknown or missing information, and sustained only if there is timely release of information that satisfies the curiosity. The key insight for HCI research is that similar to other types of rewards, e.g., money, points and badges, information can be treated as a type of currency for motivation, and that one can design interfaces to induce and maintain curiosity in order to direct the behavior of the participants.

In this talk, I will first give an overview of the key ideas in information-theoretic models of curiosity, and how these ideas manifest themselves historically in various lines of research in human-computer interaction. Next, I will present results from a recent study where we designed curiosity-inducing interfaces and studied them in the context of a crowdsourcing task on Amazon Mechanical Turk. Experimental results show that our curiosity interventions improve worker retention without degrading performance, and the magnitude of the effects are influenced by both personal characteristics of the worker and the nature of the task. Finally, I will end the talk by describing several on-going projects that continue to investigate principled ways to harness curiosity through design.

Computational Tools for Personalized Design and Digital Fabrication — Bernhard Thomaszewski (Disney Research Zurich)

As a key advantage over conventional manufacturing technologies, 3D printing has the ability to create complexity and variety at no extra cost. This fact indicates the possibility of a mass customization culture in which we personalize designs according to our needs and preferences and fabricate them at home on a 3D printer. But while there is already a thriving market of consumer-level 3D printers, the tools that would empower average users to design 3D-printable content are still largely lacking.

In this talk, I will highlight a number of challenges that arise when creating such tools and illustrate some key concepts on the example of physical characters such as mechanical toys, robotic creatures, and other mechanically-functional models. I will also talk about our work on design tools for physical surfaces such as balloon-like inflatables and structures made from interlocking elements.

Visualization Analysis and Design — Tamara Munzner (University of British Columbia)

Computer-based visualization (vis) systems provide visual representations of datasets designed to help people carry out tasks more effectively. Visualization is suitable when there is a need to augment human capabilities rather than replace people with computational decision-making methods. The design space of possible vis idioms is huge, and includes the considerations of both how to create and how to interact with visual representations. Vis design is full of trade-offs, and most possibilities in the design space are ineffective for a particular task, so validating the effectiveness of a design is both necessary and difficult. Vis designers must take into account three very different kinds of resource limitations: those of computers, of humans, and of displays. Vis usage can be analyzed in terms of why the user needs it, what data is shown, and how the idiom is designed. I will discuss this framework for analyzing the design of visualization systems.

Skilled Simulated Human and Animals: Almost there! — Michiel van de Panne (University of British Columbia)

Modeling human and animal movement remains a challenge for all applications of computer animation, including training simulations, virtual reality, games, and film. The common fall-back solutions still use motion-capture, keyframing, and carefully-crafted procedures to stitch motion clips together. We need to do much better: solutions should be principled, scalable, and generate motions that are indistinguishable from reality. As a significant step in this direction, I'll explain some of the most recent physics-based models of movement and showcase their capabilities.

I'll also describe open problems and a number of "grand challenges" that could help drive progress in this area in the coming years. Lastly, I'll philosophise a bit about the ever-growing complexity of scientific models and what it means to "understand" them.

Finding Structure in Large Collections of 3D Models — Vladimir G. Kim (Adobe Research)

As large repositories of 3D shape collections grow, understanding the geometric data, especially encoding the inter-model similarity, their variations, semantics and functionality, is of central importance. My research addresses the challenge of deriving probabilistic models that capture common structure in large, unorganized, and diverse collections of 3D polygonal shapes. In my talk I will present several such models and their applications. I will cover basic tools for establishing relationships between models in highly heterogeneous datasets: correspondences, consistent segmentation, part hierarchies, and human-centric analysis. I will demonstrate how these analysis results can be used to learn a structural prior that can be used for organizing big shape repositories, reconstructing accurate and complete geometry from partial RGB-D scans.

The Video Invasion: How video is changing the way we engage with the world — Kori Inkpen (Microsoft Research)

Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Video. Online video today accounts for a huge percentage of Internet traffic, and these numbers are expected to continue to rise at a dramatic rate. Although these numbers reflect the huge appetite consumers have for visual media, the true game-changer has yet to come. Streaming video provides opportunities for users to watch video when and where they want, and opens up new creation and distribution channels, but, consumption is still a relatively passive experience. Instead, the truly magical experiences that video can provide will come when video connects and engages people in new ways. This talk will examine insights on how the intersection of social media and video is changing the way we engage with the world, and the potential this medium has to transform our lives.

A Field Study of On-Calendar Visualizations — Dandan Huang (University of Victoria), Melanie Tory (Tableau Software), Lyn Bartram (Simon Fraser University)

Feedback tools help people to monitor information about themselves to improve their health, sustainability practices, or personal well-being. Yet reasoning about personal data (e.g., pedometer counts, blood pressure readings, or home electricity consumption) to gain a deep understanding of your current practices and how to change can be challenging with the data alone. We integrate quantitative feedback data within a personal digital calendar; this approach aims to make the feedback data readily accessible and more comprehensible. We report on an eight-week field study of an on-calendar visualization tool. Results showed that a personal calendar can provide rich context for people to reason about their feedback data. The on-calendar visualization enabled people to quickly identify and reason about regular patterns and anomalies. Based on our results, we also derived a model of the behavior feedback process that extends existing technology adoption models. With that, we reflected on potential barriers for the ongoing use of feedback tools.
