Abstract:
In addition to the virtual, there is a vast amount of data present in the real world. Given recent advances in computer vision, augmented reality, and cloud services, we are faced with a tremendous opportunity to augment the structured data around end-users with insights. Coinciding with these trends, the number of data-rich end-user activities is also rapidly increasing. Thus, it is useful to investigate the process of data exploration and analysis in augmented and mixed reality settings. In this talk, we describe a data exploration platform that utilizes augmented reality to enable querying over real-world data.
