Rosstin Murphy of IBM presents his research on using AR to visualize, analyze, and manipulate big data in the workplace. His goal is to use AR to augment the data scientist's toolbox and improve the speed and depth of their analyses. Exploring VR interaction in a business context showed promise, but revealed objective challenges to VR in a work environment. These challenges include the time cost of switching between VR gear and mouse + keyboard, juggling a 3D virtual environment alongside conventional 2D desktop interfaces, and choosing the right hardware controller model and 3D interaction algorithms. AR technology, though still in its infancy, elegantly solves many problems.
Attendees will learn how big data analysis can benefit from an AR perspective. Relative merits of Oculus/Leap, HTC Vive, and HoloLens interaction models are revealed. Attendees will also learn why restricting object interaction range based on arm length is unnecessary, easy switching between mouse + keyboard and hand gestures is the most convenient control scheme for data analysis, and moving to an AR device solves many interaction and interface problems with VR.
