Title: 
Perceptual Science for Augmented Reality

Abstract
Recent years have seen impressive advances in near-eye display systems for augmented reality. In these systems, digital content is merged with the user's view of the physical world. There are, however, unique perceptual challenges associated with designing a display system that can seamlessly blend the real and the virtual. By understanding and modeling the relevant principles that underlie our visual perception, I will show how we can address some of these challenges.

Biography
Emily Cooper is an Assistant Professor of Optometry and Vision Science at UC Berkeley. She is co-Director of the Center for Innovation in Vision and Optics, and a member of the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms and phenomenology of human visual perception, with an emphasis on 3D vision and binocular combination. Her research has also concentrated on applications for the design of visual displays and graphics.
