We are pleased and honored to welcome Dr. Hsin-Ni Ho as keynote speaker for MVAR 2016. Dr. Ho will be opening the workshop with a keynote entitled Is the hand trustworthy? Multimodal influence in haptic object perception.
While direct manual exploration is commonly thought to be the most direct and reliable way for people to obtain information about object properties such as weight, texture and temperature, haptic object perception is subject to influence from other modalities and the resulting perception is not always veridical. In this talk, I will present an overview of multimodal influence in haptic object perception, with special focus on object temperature perception, which has been shown to interact with vision and touch. The strategies used by the brain to integrate multimodal sensory inputs will be discussed, together with the implications for virtual and augment reality applications.
Dr. Hsin-Ni Ho received the PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA in 2006. Currently, she works as a senior research scientist at the NTT Communication Science Laboratories, Japan. She is an editorial board member of the journal Temperature. She models heat transfer process during hand-object interactions and studies how resulting changes in skin temperature are processed by the brain and integrated with other sensory inputs to form a unified percept of an object. Her research interests include thermal and tactile perception, multimodal interactions, material perception and development of haptic interfaces on the basis of human perceptual properties.
