Researchers from the Neuroimaging Center at NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) and Dr. Karen Schloss from Wisconsin Institute for the Discovery at University Wisconsin-Madison have developed the UW Virtual Brain Project, producing unique, interactive, 3D narrated diagrams to help students learn about the structure and function of perceptual systems in the human brain.
Jon Eckhardt, Robert Nowak, and Kevin Ponto were among the recipients of nine mini grants from the American Family Insurance Data Science Institute to advance data science.
Hyperinnovation profiles a recent networking event devoted to development of WID’s nascent Emerging Technologies Hub.
WID’s new hubs—Data Science, Multi-Omics, and Illuminating Discovery—represent a new path forward for collaborative research projects and fields.
For WID’s Kevin Ponto, virtual reality is more than a way of playing video games or simulating roller coaster rides. He thinks VR can be a tool for solving real-world problems.
CaSP is joining with the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery to amplify its voice on science policy issues. On October 4 in the Discovery Building, they host a panel on improving forensic science policy.
Investigating how observers make predictions about objects and entities based on their cognitive and emotional responses to perceptual information; focusing on how people’s associations with colors influence cognitive processing in aesthetic response, judgment and decision making, and interpretation of information visualizations.
Develop techniques to better the experience of virtual reality through new devices, interfaces, and techniques.
