Technical Series: Quantifying User Experience
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
IBI Group, Multipurpose Room (Ground Floor)
55 St. Clair Avenue West
The TSA Technical Series 2018 continues with a presentation by Entro Communications!
The physical design of space influences how we feel, think, and behave, and we have always had an intuitive sense that visual design shapes the character of a space. How do we meaningfully evaluate design options–how can we objectify the subjective? Models, based on principles of cognitive neuroscience and using machine learning and computer vision, advance our understanding of how the visual characteristics of an environment shape its character. These scientific and technological advancements support the design process and allow us more confidence in the effectiveness of our designs.
About the Speaker
Dr. Vedran Dzebic leads the research and development practices at Entro Communications. His work sits at the intersection of cognitive neuroscience and environmental design. Through the use of innovative techniques and technologies, such as virtual reality, computer vision and machine learning, he explores how the physical environment shapes how we think, feel and behave. By applying rigorous yet human-centred research perspectives, he helps build stronger connections between people and place and supports the philosophy that all design should be grounded by research and the science of human interaction. His research has been featured in platforms including the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture, the Environmental Design Research Association, The Biennial Conference on Environmental Psychology, and Intelligent Buildings International.
