Transparency Series Seminar: Augmented Reality
March 23, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT
This is perhaps our most experimental event in terms of “distance” from journalistic practice. Augmented reality (AR) provides a view of an event or phenomenon that is enhanced, “augmented,” with computer-generated elements, perhaps responding to sensor input (sound, video of the event, GPS coordinates) or triggers computed through computer vision tools operating on the scene. A mobile device like a phone or a tablet are often the viewing portal for the augmented scene. Join us for a Friday evening seminar with Graham Roberts, Director of Immersive Platforms Storytelling, who will talk to the challenges and affordances of augmented reality in journalism.
