What Does the Riemann Sphere's Axis Stand for?: Understanding the big picture of how mathematical functions behave

Summary: To visualize the behavior of complex functions, we need four dimensions. We raise the question that has been neglected: “What does the Riemann sphere’s axis stand for?” The answer can be obtained by setting the immersive environment at the sphere’s origin, which is always undefined in projective geometry.

Engaging the Invisible

Summary: O-Tū-Kapua (‘what clouds see’) is a collaborative project that weaves art, science and mobile technology together in the creation of a mixed reality, immersive environment. Engaging children through participation in an educational experience that introduces climate science by situating the learning within their neighbourhood.

SeLL: Second Language Learning Paired with VR and AI

Summary: This talk presents an English learning system combining VR and AI. We demonstrate that English related acoustic and visual immersive experience gives learners more exposure to listening and oral skills. With the integration of automatic speech recognition and pronunciation assessment, our system can assess learners' listening and speaking performance.

Engaging Maker Culture with Digital Prototyping

Summary: This talk discusses the role of prototyping as a vehicle to integrate electronic media technology, materiality, and physical computing into architectural design process. It connects a creating-making approach to a broader maker and hacker culture through adaptive and autonomous assemblies and embedded electronic systems.

Memorise Chinese Characters Better with Arithmetic Graphical Strategy

Summary: A strategy to memorise the Chinese characters using a graphical arithmetic strategy in introduce. This learning strategy adopted the Lego bricks build-up idea to form a morphological animation representation to memorise Chinese characters. This morphological representation helps the learners to understand the meaning of the Chinese character in details.
