    Future Lab: Scaling Virtual Worlds

    Future Lab: Scaling Virtual Worlds

    Researchers are investigating how to build virtual environments in which hundreds or thousands of participants can log in and interact with each other. The applications go beyond gaming. Simulations are used for meetings, organizational operations and even product branding. Scientists are discovering how to meet the challenges of creating 3D spaces for many users to […]

    Future Lab: 3D Molecular Visualization

    Future Lab: 3D Molecular Visualization

    Advances in interactive molecular graphics enable not only creative research, but an increasingly collaborative and mobile research community to interact. In the “VIsualization Vault,” at the University of California, San Francisco, Professor Tom Ferrin and his team created Chimera, a visualization system for exploratory research. Ferrin, one of the pioneers of visualization, leads UCSF’s computer […]

    Future Lab: Context Aware Car Safety

    Future Lab: Context Aware Car Safety

    While context-aware devices of the near future might recommend restaurants, monitor a user’s health, or screen phone calls, they may also save human lives by keeping drivers safe and aware of their surroundings. Future Lab spoke with researchers about the problem of drowsy or distracted driving, the ability of the human mind to process information […]

    Future Lab: The TRIL Centre

    Future Lab: The TRIL Centre

    The world’s population is aging. It’s estimated that by the year 2050 more than half the people on Earth will be over the age of 50. But while people are living longer, they still have to live with the diseases that come with old age. The European community has been working with technology companies to […]

    Future Lab: Earth Day 2011 – Curbing the Carbon Footprint of Data Centers

    Future Lab: Earth Day 2011 – Curbing the Carbon Footprint of Data Centers

    As computing power increases and we all rely increasingly on cloud computing and storage, the environmental demands of information technology are growing significantly. Earth Day 2011 marks a moment when, by some estimates, the carbon footprint of data centers exceeds that of the airline industry (an Environmental Protection Agency estimate suggests this will happen by […]

    Future Lab: Context Aware

    Future Lab: Context Aware

    One of the next frontiers of computing is to create systems that understand the user. Context aware devices of the near future might recommend restaurants, monitor a user’s health, or screen phone calls—all based on information collected from device sensors and casual input data. Two of the most profound sensors are already on our devices: […]
