#5 Episode – Discovering virtual realities (2/2)


In this Episode Prof. Dr. Sebastian von Mammen gives a short excurse to the field of Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI). One aspect here is the avatar research, where you can see yourself being represented in the virtual world. What impact does that have on your experience in the virtual world – does it change your behavior for instance if you perceive yourself  differently than in reality?

We also talk about local gaming networks and future research projects, about interactive systems and complex interactive simulations for developmental biology.

Guest: Prof. Dr. Sebastian von Mammen, full professor at the University of Würzburg. He is professor of Games Engineering and member of the Chair of Human-Computer Interaction. He is an expert in the field of Games Engineering, Serious and Immersive Games, and Real-time Interactive Systems.
