Jonghyun Kim (NVIDIA): “Matching Visual Acuity and Prescription: Towards AR for Humans”
January 15 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Location: Packard 101
Title: Matching Visual Acuity and Prescription: Towards AR for Humans
Abstract: In this talk, Dr. Jonghyun Kim will present two recent AR display prototypes inspired by human visual system. The first, Foveated AR dynamically provides high-resolution virtual image to the user’s foveal region based on the tracked gaze. The second, Prescription AR is a prescription-embedded fully-customized AR display systems which works as user’s eyeglasses and AR display at the same time. Finally, he will discuss on important issues for socially-acceptable AR display systems including customization, privacy, fashion, and eye-contact interaction, and how they are related to the display technologies.
Bio: Dr. Jonghyun Kim received his B.S. degrees in the School of Electrical Engineering in 2011 at Seoul National University and received his Ph.D. degrees in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Seoul National University in 2017. He is currently a Senior Research Scientist at NVIDIA and also working as a Visiting Researcher at Stanford. His expertise includes AR/VR display, light field display, and Display Optics. His Foveated and Prescription AR demo received the ‘best in show’ award in Emerging Technology at SIGGRAPH 2019.
