Seminar on “Geometry and VR/AR” at the Academy of Science, Turin

Seminar on “Geometry and VR/AR” at the Academy of Science, Turin

On February 4, 2019 from 4pm to 6pm, prof. Paolo Montuschi and prof. Fabrizio Lamberti will give a speech at the Academy of Science in Turin in the context of a series of seminars on the topic “Math in the contemporary” (“Matematica nel contemporaneo”).
 
Title of the speech will be “Real computers and virtual geometry: Tools, opportunities and perspectives” (“Computer reali e geometria virtuale: Strumenti, opportunità e prospettive”).
 
Modern virtual and augmented reality technologies represent the natural evolution of traditional bi-dimensional graphics interfaces based on screen, mouse and keyboard. By means of wearable displays, mobile devices, gestures and voice commands it is today possible to immerse users in virtual worlds created by computers or “augment” the real word with digital multimedia content. 
 
The creation of such words and tridimensional content passes through modeling and rendering processes that are typical of computer graphics, in which geometry represents the mathematical ground through which, e.g., surfaces and volumes can be defined and transformations necessary for placing them in the 3D space and projecting them on the 2D image plane are developed.
 
By moving from an overview of the various contributions offered by geometry to computer graphics and to virtual and augmented reality, the goal will be to show the main application fields of such technologies, with specific reference to education and training. 
 
To this purpose, a selection of the main software applications available to end users will be presented, by analyzing how they can support both teachers and students in teaching and learning math and geometry.
