Robert Xiao wins 2019 SIGCHI Outstanding Dissertation Award

UBC Assistant Professor Robert Xiao was awarded a 2019 SIGCHI Outstanding Dissertation Award by SIGCHI, the premier international society for human-technology and human-computer interaction (HCI).

Robert Xiao’s dissertation (‘On-World Computing Enabling Interaction on Everyday Surfaces’), completed at CMU, introduces on-world computing, an interaction paradigm in which touch-sensitive interactive content is projected out onto surfaces in the natural world.

This is both very challenging and very timely since these solutions have the potential to take the familiar touch interactions from the smartphones of today and apply them to a wide variety of Augmented Reality scenarios of the future.

Congratulations, Robert!
